Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By Annie on March 9, 2013
Format: Library Binding
I purchased the Dewey book and the Fiction/nonfiction book in the series because they a good step for discussion and teaching primary students. I read this from our library and decided not to purchase it because it was too simple, too much emphasis on the writing and not enough on the actual bookmaking process. I could not figure how to get a discussion started and I think that reading the book to a class would bore them to wiggles and distraction.
