Testimonials

“I am currently an elementary supervisor for a district that has 7600 students in K-12. I have been a user or supplier of these materials for more than 20 years and still have found nothing that does the job quite like them.”
Margaret Mauney Pulaski Co. Bd of Education, KY
“The workbooks' consistent format is easy to follow and lends to more independent work. The stories are easy to decode and read, building on the students' phonemic development, which build self-confidence and excitement.”
Debra Hudspeth Gay Ave Primary, TX
“I like teaching with this series because the pages are short, simple and self explanatory. I can cover a concept in a group and ask students to work independently in these books while I teach a small reading group. Students are never overwhelmed...they are confident while working independently and the work reinforces the concepts taught.”
Andrea Kostelak Bedwell Elementary, NJ
