Comments from reviewers/educators:

I absolutely loved that the eBooks combined nonfiction and poetry - two genres that are typically harder to get children to read and become excited about.

Using animals and real-life animal photography was a fantastic idea - and a great way to incite interest in the eBooks.

The questions in the adaptive assessment were of high-quality - and as an educator, I appreciated that they stretched beyond 'recall and repeat.'
