For example, Week 1 Day 1 is about the Arctic Ocean and the last sentence claims "However, much of the ice in the Arctic Ocean is melting because of global warming." Week 3 Day 1's title is 'The Great Pacific Garbage Patch'; Week 4 Day 3's title is 'When It Rains, It Pollutes'. Just know before you purchase that about 1 passage per week will be centered on these topics.
Giving it 2 stars because of the heavy concentration on global warming issues and I'm not crazy about the very repetitive questioning. We used Spectrum Reading Comprehension last year, and I think I prefer that now.
