Below are comments from their reviews.

"I would definitely recommend this product for 1st/2nd grade teachers. The books were engaging and well-organized."

"The sets are excellent to use for integrating your science and math into your reading instruction."

"I feel that the information in the texts fit into our curriculum and presented the information on each group of students' level. The "total package" includes all the components that a teacher would need to carry out four successful guided reading groups. The reading objectives and science objectives listed were well thought out by the publisher. The components of the set were exceptional."

"I like the way each set has a variety of text that can be used to teach about a particular subject such as weather, for example. There is text for different levels of readers. There is even a big book and small versions of the big book. The big book is great for shared reading and then the smaller versions can be incorporated into small group instruction."

"These theme units were a nice addition to our regular science and math materials. There were books on the same topic (weather) but on different reading levels. Multiple copies were provided to be used in guided reading."

"Skills that my students learned from using this product were vocabulary development, compare and contrast, taking notes (high group), as well as fluency in reading. With each text set the students were able to gain significant information about the subject being studied, in my case weather."

"I like the fact that the product included a big book with the set. The leveled readers are of good quality. I like the CD for each reader so the students can go back and listen to the CD after having read the book in the guided reading group. The activities in the Assessment Booklet were good to have and I found them helpful."

"My students learned the parts of a non-fiction text such as table of contents, diagrams, captions and index."

"I liked that there was not only a big book that could be used for a whole class setting, but that there were also leveled readers pertaining to the subject. The pictures were clear and very interesting."

"My students were able to explore the concepts of measuring for height, weight, length, and volume. Photographs were provided to show real measuring tools (measuring cups, scale, measuring tape, etc.). Temperature maps were provided with the weather set to teach how to read maps based on the key."
