A nice addition to any library.

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2009-05-22) Good Permalink

      At the middle School level, this book works wonderfully for English as as second language students, as well as Special Education students.  Contains excellent color illustrations and is recommended to  students from K-4th graders.
