Nice to have as a resource for kids writing essays! Great for teaching and reviewing the core ideas. Whether you use it a curriculum or extra help, these books are great for middle-schoolers and their parents who have probably forgotten a lot since they graduated. The layout is both fun and engaging as well as draws your eyes to prime ideas and concepts.
The book can be read in consecutive chapters, or chapter by chapter. It's an enjoyable reference book, the format is not too academic. It also has nice illustrations and useful examples.
