great book and guide was fun to follow.
This has been a helpful supplement to our reading.
It covers vocabulary, reading comprehension, thinking deeper, biblical references and has some fun activities. It's challenging but appropriately so, not too much for any child I believe.
We used this guide and enjoyed it. There is a study of vocabulary in each section, discussion questions, and questions for critical thinking. I especially appreciate the use of the Bible in some of the questions.
