We are using this book as an avenue to support learning activities in after school programs. This book was a perfect choice as the activities teach short concepts in fun and interesting ways. As with any subject it has as much to do with the person facilitating the class as the material. We like it though!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
