"I taught ELA in public schools for 12 years, and I believe that this series provides a balanced, developmentally appropriate approach to ELA. Lessons are concise but thorough and my son is not frustrated by lesson lengths. Love this series, and we look forward to the next book in the series." ★★★★★ - Lyndsey
