Out of the many comprehension workbooks I have used and reviewed, this series is my personal favorite. It contains great variety in subject matter and excellent thinking questions. Before reading each of the 31 reading selections per book, a short introduction gives a little background information and states the reading skill to be emphasized. Selections include pieces on general topics, mathematics, philosophy, literature, science, social studies, logic and thinking, language, and the arts. Because this is a secular program, you may choose to preview some of the reading selections, particularly in the upper grades. Following the selections are questions which require students to find the main idea, identify sequence, draw conclusions, make assumptions, match vocabulary words to meanings, and identify and interpret facts. Although this series is my favorite, our children are not as certain, since these books really made them think. Please note that there are no answers included in the workbooks. All answers are provided in the small Teacher Keys, available for each workbook as a separate but inexpensive purchase.

I am concerned that my daughter is having trouble with comprehension. I like that the writing is complex enough to challenge her but not so much that she will get frustrated.

It seems to have varied passages and good questions for close reading. I only use it for students who are struggling to read carefully. It does not parallel well with modern reading comprehension standardized tests or exercises.

How many pages is this workbook? Can it be used over the course of a full year or a semester?
User on Feb 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This books has 32 lesson. You can do 1 lesson per week. 1 lesson is 3-4pages. Lessons take about 1 hour. 15(? )questions about vocabulary, writing and comprehension questions...not easy but good for training comprehensive skills. And have to buy answer sheet separately.

Great resource for practicing comprehension
I really like these books. I am a private tutor, and these are some of my favorite books to practice reading comprehension. The selections are varied and interesting. The questions start at lower levels and move on to involve higher level thinking. There are great suggestions for related writing activites.

Best Option!
I wish I had found this series sooner. It is very thorough and my children have improved in their reading comprehension as a result (as can be verified by improved standardized testing scores). The varied subject matter has kept both kids, with very different tastes, interested.
