    Great for Parent involvement

    I used this for a project with my Title I Reading Students. The children took the book home and did the puzzles with their parents or an adult partner. I got alot of wonderful responses about how much fun it was and how parents enjoyed having a few minutes of quality time with their kids. After the project was completed, students were given the book to take home to finish the remaining puzzles on their own. I highly recommend this book.
