    Customer Reviews:

    Ashley P says, "I fell in love with Jan Brett's books two years ago. When December rolled around, I knew I would conduct an author's study about Jan Brett. With being a teacher, I was strapped for time. I looked at several pre-made author's study, but found them only covering one or two books. I wanted to immerse my students into several of her books. This 413 page packet has lesson plans, activities, and printable writing activities for ten books. It was well worth the money. Thank for you all the hard work creating these activities. I am elated to use in next week."

    Heather S says, "Love this! Jan Brett is my favorite author and it is so nice to find cc aligned stuff! Please continue on with the rest of her books and make a volume 2! :-)"

    Bonnie T says, "Amazing bundle! We have so many meetings at this time of year and these activities have been perfect to leave for my sub. The students get practice in a variety of skills and my sub loves it because the books are so engaging to students! Thanks!"
