"The Reading Keys would be the Tiger Woods of its level with the other [competing] text an unranked amateur."
"I am very impressed with Reading Keys. I like the way key ideas for the different reading skills are introduced as a "Reading Key", complete with a symbol of a key. Students will learn to look for a" key" as they become confused when reading about specific skills.. . Another aspect of the book that I really enjoyed was the reading exercises and stories. . .These high interest selections will certainly keep our students reading."
