Comments from reviewers/educators:

The text of the books helped develop fluency, cadence, rhyme, and word families - as well as provided rich information about animals.

I personally love that most of the provided discussion questions are open-ended and require the child to activate prior knowledge, make an inference, or synthesize what they have just learned to formulate an idea! They are rich, varied, and valuable!

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.
