This is an exceptional book and an exceptional range. It is my experience that students in the elementary grades and junior high grades lack cross-curricular reading skills. This material is perfectly structured and and the material is up-to-date and my students love it and respond well to it.

I love this for reading comprehension and fluency for my fourth graders. The stories are fun to read, the content is interesting, and the questions are challenging. I lost my paper copy so I got this one so I can never lose it.
