This packet is exciting because it uses some of my favorite literature by one of my favorite authors. Kevin Henkes writes stories that really help young kiddos explore comprehension standards and delve into character analysis. Lilly has a distinctive personality and her stories always have a problem with a solution. Chrysanthemum is easy to describe and faces a problem that helps relating text to self.
I hope you will take a look at the sample to explore all there is in this product.
