What have other customers loved about this product?
"Due to the requirements of my district, I am not allowed to stray from our adopted reading curriculum. I am always on the lookout for products like this that I can use to supplement and enrich the stories I have to teach. This is perfect! I really like the choice of both fiction and nonfiction, and the suggestions for different uses. This could work as a whole group lesson, guided reading focus, or center activity. Thank you!" (Thank you, Michelle G.!)
"These have been wonderful for my student. They enjoy these too." (Thank you, Judith R.!)
