My daughter loves these, she read it in just two days, every second she could after school, and she remembers many of them.  Highly recommend!

This book is like a coffee-table, gift-book type item for kids. Each page has gorgeous pictures and interesting text placement - a perfect work of art. It's a book that, for some reason, has me thinking about my ADD and ADHD students. I typically encourage students to borrow from my classroom library after finishing an assignment early, and the attention span of some of my students is quite short. I envision these short, little snippets as being a favorite haunt of the book-browser (aka a kid who grabs a book, flips through it while hopefully reading some of it, and then goes for the next one). Ideally, I would love for every student to be a book-nerd like me, but that's not going to happen. Hopefully this book will sneak in a little fluency and vocabulary development while the beautiful, graphic quality has a them engaged and entertained.
