What educators are saying

My son kept a reading journal where he answered one question a day about what he'd read. It was nice to just print and go for whatever book he wanted without having to think of my own questions.
I provide these cards for my tutoring students to use in between tutoring sessions. I appreciate the variety of questions and that they are applicable to any fiction story. :)
