I love the progression in the book but also that the same drawings/images show up over and over which helps the children remember the sounds and makes the book familiar even if the concepts are new. The black and white line drawings are not distracting although some of them could be a bit clearer about what is the expected sound. Most pages have labels at the bottom if teacher isn't sure but those really shouldn't be required in a pre-k book. I assign about a page a day and most of them require very little if any instruction at all. I love resources that enable the children to teach themselves -- it builds confidence and makes my life easier. I would definitely recommend this and buy it again.

A staple in my classroom!
I have been teaching for 14 years and Evan-Moor has been part of my curriculum since day one. As a special education teacher I have taught grades K-8, no matter which grade level I am working with I have been able to meet the academic needs of the students with Evan-Moor. Because my classes are usually multi age/grade level, Evan -Moor books are perfect. I can place each student at their academic level and still have all the students working on the same type of assignment. I love their programs, they have certainly made lesson planning a breeze.
