Reviews - What do customers think about Nonfiction Reading Practice, Grade 1?
highly recommend Oct 29, 2006
I have looked many reading books for my child. This book is outstanding. Everyone seems to know what reading is about. Some parents keep buying fun books without much thought. This one is about reading serious nonfictions and checking the results. It's skill training with clear methodology and step-by-step objectives. It benefited my child tremendously. In the past, my son read a lot fun books, but mostly, I realize, just had a superficial or fractional understanding. I didn't know about his comprehension level, either.
After applying this book for only two months, I started seeing the difference. Now, he is much more comfortable with nonfiction books. Those fictions become lot easier. In a recent assessment in school, he is one of the top readers in his class. He also ranks high in the BeeStar online reading program we use. This fine book is truly thoughtful and is so effective. I highly recommend it.
Great for Reading Comprehension Jun 29, 2006
I bought this book as a practice reader for my son over the summer. It's just what I was looking for & is great for reading comprehension skills which he needed to work on especially.
