Review

"Looks interesting....I like the inclusion of pictures."--Margaret Ann Smith, Salisbury High School "The entire series is excellent--while obviously aimed at junior high students, it is emminently suitable in classes in high school where many students have low reading levels in English--yet challenging enough for those who are gifted."--Gayle H. Cloud, Central High School, Little Rock, Arkansas "Has lots of possibilities for oral and written practice."--Robert Haglage, Woodward High "A very useful accessory--attractive and lively. It should save the teacher time and effort."--Gillian Vardon, Nichols School "Excellent....I would recommend it."--Etan Savir, The John Cooper School "Looks interesting....I like the inclusion of pictures."--Margaret Ann Smith, Salisbury High School "The entire series is excellent--while obviously aimed at junior high students, it is emminently suitable in classes in high school where many students have low reading levels in English--yet challenging enough for those who are gifted."--Gayle H.
