Excellent fundamental practice of specific reading skills.
I have read several other reviews.  I do not believe this book is supposed to be completely Common Core or PARCC aligned.  This is a nicely organized book that covers the fundamentals of reading, with engaging text, and skill-based questions.  I think this a great resource for basic practice.  I will be using it as a supplemental resource to support a basal series.

Not enough rigor to meet state testing expectations.
I agree with a previous review found for this product.  The questions do not meet the rigor of state testing expectations.  I do like that it teaches the fundamental reading skills independently but am very disappointed in the format of the questions.  I also hope that Evan Moor will send purchasers updated ebooks. I had planned on encouraging our school district to purchase this product for all third grade teachers but would not unless the format is updated.

Awesome
This has been a great resource for my classroom. My students need explicit instructions and guidance and this provides it.

not rigorous for common core
This was an attempt to teach independent reading fundamental skills, but it is not up to the rigor in common core expectations.  For instance, the author does not understand the importance of point of view since it is emphasizing first and third person, rather than what the character or author's viewpoints/feelings are about another character or event.  I was very disappointed that a new product does not have part a and part b questions nor multiple choice questions that have more than one answer.  This product needs to be revamped already to prepare students properly or should be provided in an editable form, so that teachers can increase the rigor themselves.  My hopes is that Evan Moor will send purchasers updated ebooks.  No, I would not purchase this until they update.
