  1. I love the activities to go go along with “Wimpy Kid”. They are the most checked out books in my classroom library and I am always searching for ideas that will enhance learning in my reading class.

  2. I absolutely love the Delta Science readers. I use them in my science lessons, reading lessons, and small groups to cover the topics.

  3. I think the Science Readers look like they would be very useful in a classroom! And I have been on the look-out for Thanksgiving children’s books that tell the history of this wonderful holiday!

  4. I use the Delta series with my resource students that happen to be all boys grades 2 and 3! They love to explore the why of nature and always enjoy a time of “off track” to look and talk about the books.

  5. I like the Delta books and having them to support common core. I think my third graders would enjoy learning about how Thanksgiving became a holiday.
