A "novel" approach to reading, and introduction to the classics rolled into one. Each "Bring the Classics to Life" worktext contains a complete adaptation of the original work, written at appropriate reading level, a synopsis of the story, vocabulary lists, comprehension questions, vocabulary quizzes and answer key. Novels have been broken into ten short chapters. Prior to each chapter, new vocabulary words are defined and used in context. Comprehension questions include recall of specific details, sequence of events, drawing inferences from story context, critical thinking, selecting the main idea. Vocabulary exercises using the newly-learned words follow. 72 pgs. each, reproducible. Black and white (nice for coloring!) illustrations. There are 9-10 Classic Worktexts per grade level, with a complete set also available at each grade. A separate Shakespeare series is also available for grades 2 and up, with plays adapted in modern English (no "thees" or "thous") for easy reading.

The ePub CD-ROMs allow you to take the text portion of the workbook to your computer, MP3-player or e-reader. Each includes the complete book as a regular EPUB file, enhanced EPUB file (with audio), printable PDF file, and audio MP3 file. Please note that these CDs do NOT include the printable student activity pages from the workbooks.

The retellings of the classic books are also available in audio CD format. The comprehension questions and other features in the worktexts are not included, just the adapted story The audio recordings are fairly well done, with expertly paced narration and exciting sound effects. If used with a workbook, these could provide a nice audio component for listening comprehension. CDs are available for Level 1 and Level 2 books, but not Level 2 Shakespeare.

These adapted novels are a fabulous teaching tool for my Special Education reading students in grade 3. We just finished Tom Sawyer and they loved it.

This and all the other Classics Worktexts look like high-interest literature for the 2nd grade boy who isn't much into reading. Hope to get him hooked. But I will have him narrate the day's reading back to me before letting him do any worksheet pages and may turn that into his copywork for the next day.

I use the books for students in an exceptional children's English class The students do enjoy the books and it is good to have them written in language that most can read without difficulty We also use the CD It is okay but I am disappointed that the reader is a female especially with book being written in the voice of Huck himself It would have been so much better read by a young male voice We also used A Christmas Carol from this series Again the only thing that was unsatisfactory was the female voice on the CD It should have been read by a deep male voice since the story was told from the voice of Scrooge

This series of reading workbooks is the best one I have found for my reluctant reader who is now in 2nd grade My son doesn't like traditional easy readers because there is "no plot" This series is a great compromise: the vocabulary is minimal but the stories are well written He went from having a fit during reading lessons to waking up early to read the next chapter Although the "Grade 1" is certainly not for children in the beginning of the year(I would say they are late grade 1 possibly grade 2) once they have a semi-good working vocabulary maybe 200 words(?) these books work well Each book is separated into 10 "chapters" with each chapter having two pages of important words to know that the child may not have seen including pronounciation definition & a sentence in context Then you have a picture on one page & the story on the 2nd Finally there is a comprehension worksheet and a vocabulary worksheet The worksheets are allowed to be copied for classroom use so if you have more than one child the value is fantastic For me there is no work necessary other than coping the worksheetsThe only issues that some people may have with these workbooks is that some of the themes may be inappropiate for some families For example in "Huck Finn" Jim is a run-away slave Huck lies to adults; the books are abridged but the content is fairly true to the orginial story so if you would have issues with the original you will have issues with the version from this company However they have 50 different books (10 for each level) so I'm sure there are many your family would enjoy
