How I Use It
I used this product with the students I tutor for reading comprehension. It was great for lower level students because of the audio / read to me to be able to hear fluent, expressive reading as they followed along. Upper grade students liked have a vast variety of fiction and non-fiction books to pick from. It would be helpful to make the website a little more user friendly and easier log in process for students without having to use the teacher's email.
My Take
I loved this product. I would like if it was possible to add comprehension questions at the end for students to complete when they are done reading. I like that books can be loaded offline, there were book series the students are familiar with and that there are many options of genres to choose from. Students would be hard pressed to not find a book along their interests.
