“Yes, the text was fantastic. I have shared it with several teachers and they have expressed interest in obtaining one for themselves. I plan to keep this book and use it as future reference.

“Yes, I liked this text a lot. I kept it for future reference. I liked how it read, it was not like normal text books (well some). I also really liked the sections where it explained literacy centers. I think it would be excellent to use in a future class.
