A buyer commented, "These poems were awesome! They were very flexible with particular time constraints (had an awkward few days after a unit before Thanksgiving break) and filled the time with high-quality reading. The poems were very well-selected and the questions stretched the students' but weren't too challenging for the lower-reading level students. Thank you for a great product!"
