Review by

As of 2/16 I have read quite a few snippets. One thing I am still enjoying are the large number of illustrations - GOOD illustrations. Almost every page has a lot of illustrations, which I love, especially for the price. I also love the voice that Linda and Laura Kemshall write in. Helping, teacherly and confident, bu also encouraging and not condescending.
