This was a very helpful comprehension guide. The guide spirals reading strategies throughout the chapter activities. I found these to be helpful reviews that reinforced strategies we'd already practiced. The graphics in the packet are compelling.

My version of the book had different page numbers, so I had to go and change all of them. Otherwise, it was very thorough and easy to use. The kids liked it.
