We purchased this book as an aide for summer skills between 5th and 6th grade. The cover says 'promotes higher-level thinking skills' and 'reinforces classroom learning'. Unfortunately, the first reading comprehension lesson states that 'The high altitude in the alps means there is less carbon monoxide which makes photosynthesis more difficult'. The comprehension questions then center around this concept of there being less 'carbon MONOxide' at higher altitudes. This science is just wrong, so I am giving it 1 star. We cannot promote higher-level thinking skills with inaccurate information. I urge the editors to take another look before re-issuing this book.
