Solid program for comprehension
Going through this book, I was reminded of a few tests I have taken while I was in high school. You read a portion of a story and then you answer questions based on what you've read in the story. It's a bit boring in that retrospect, but it's solid in that it teaches you what you're going to need in the future for tests. My oldest son says that it's fun to read, but the questions are tough at times. Keep in mind he is 8, just started this program, and really hasn't done anything like this before. If you want to make sure your kids are understanding what they are reading, this is a good, affordable place to start, just don't do it everyday or you will drill the love of reading out of them.

My son really enjoyed this book. I thought they laid the information out well and I was glad that it was something my son could do a lot of own his own.

For my 9 year old who struggles with reading comprehension.
Dianna P on May 13, 2016
We choose this based on the number of homeschool parents that recommended it for their children. The number of people that said it worked well for 7-9 year old boys was extremely high and they said their kids who didn't like reading actually enjoyed it and they found it did an extremely good job teaching comprehension strategies.

How long does each lesson take to complete?
A shopper on Aug 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It took my kids about 15 minutes per lesson. After I graded it, I would go over any missed concepts which would take a few more minutes, but I loved the answer key because it gave thorough explanations for correct as well as incorrect answers.
