What educators are saying

This resource has been so easy to use. I love how it is aligned to standards and incorporates reading and writing.
Love this. It's so easy to use with my in person and distance learners, and it's nice to have engaging stories about social studies. The book tends to be a bit blah. :) Thank you!
