This was fair. Not quite what I expected. A bit simple/plain. I thought it would have more ideas.
On  March 6, 2014What's The Buzz In First answered:
Other than what was listed in the description, I'm not sure what more you were expecting. It is a simple unit of study! It was meant to be that way so any classroom teacher could do these projects with his/her kids. Once the art is done, it doesn't seem so plain in the end... The end results are usually amazing for as
simple as they may seem. I hope your kids still have fun with it. Thanks for your purchase.

On  December 10, 2012,  Buyer said:
Each of these pages is simply a place for the students to create their art. There is no lesson about the art, or how it relates to the book - I'll still have to do the work. I feel that the seller misrepresented the product. Not worth $5, when it could have taken me five minutes to create this as a word document. Truly disappointed.
On  December 10, 2012What's The Buzz In First answered:
You are right when you say each of the pages are where the kids create their art. What you TOTALLY MISSED is that there is info about each book and the medium that was used. This was meant for a lower el. classroom...not for art students in art school. No where in my description does it say it has lessons about the art. And for the record....it took way longer than 5 minutes to create the pages in a word document. I'm disappointed that you did not read the description fully AND that you did not look through the unit fully. You left feedback immediately after your purchase. Hopefully in the future when you shop on TPT, you give the seller a little more credit than you did here. Such a bummer that you ruined my perfect feedback score on one of my more popular items. Did you see the other feedback that buyers left on this item? Nothing but POSITIVE!!!!!!
