My daughter has never enjoyed reading, especially comprehension book assignments. However, this workbook caught her interest. The classic literature stories really allowed us to have some interesting and exciting discussions which, in years past, we have never experienced, because she simply wanted to be done. This year the presentation of the various elements of a story, such as theme, plot, and characterization, were done in a very clear-cut manner. Both of us enjoyed the ease with which she completed each assignment.
