Best of the three teacher resources I purchased for this novel, and the only one I'll use. I'll purchase from this company again. I teach 5th and 6th grade and wanted reproducible materials for a reading unit. This is pedagogically solid material and fully reproducible for one classroom. This is exactly what I would have developed if I had the time! Also, each chapter has a small, separate section relating the Bible to the text, but if you are using this in a public school you can just skip those parts. Being in a Catholic school I think it is a useful integration.
The cost is high for what you get. It would be better if it included note poking pages, projects and maybe additional reading for digging deeper. The younger versions need more vocabulary and content.
