Thanks for introducing me to some great read alouds. I got this for a long term sub at the end of the year but I fear that the kids will work so fast when completing the follow up.

On  May 1, 2013,  Emily H. asked:
Hi! I bought your African Animals unit with the mini-nonfiction booklets and loved it! You then did the same thing for Australian animals, and I plan to purchase that one, too, because I really like the format of the African animals one and love the mini books. I was wondering if you were planning on doing more units like this. I would really love one on ocean life with mini books on different sea creatures for the end of the year! Thanks!
