My daughter only had five of these Bailey School books, and two of them involve soccer? Ugh.

These junior chapter books seem to be set in the second grade, while the main series chapter books are set in third grade, so there's no Mrs. Jeepers, just the four kids. And one of them is an annoying bully who is supposed to be comic relief? Double ugh.
