Awards & Reviews

“This Level 2 “Kids Can Read” with Help Franklin book is meant for students who have some reading skills but may still need help. Although the story is thirty-two pages long with some conversation, varied sentences and increased vocabulary, it is still full of repetition and visual clues which will help beginning readers ... .The illustrations are very well done ... [and] add not only visual appeal but also important information to the text.”
