“(The book’s) three greatest strengths are the inclusion of differentiate instruction for the ELL students, children’s literature, and integration of media/technology.”

“Some of the book’s strengths include the appearance of a user-friendly format, instructional strategies across the language arts areas, affordable pricing for the teaching candidates and (it could be) a resource to keep for future reference.”
