“My students LOVE this text and it is one fo the few that they don’t sell back at the end of the term. I have worked with teachers who still have this book on their shelf five years after graduating from the program. Typically, the books end up with lots of sticky notes in them and looking worn because they are so used and loved.” ~ Kathryn M. Ciechanowski, Oregon State University

Yes, the text is good, and all those reviews should be believed. But I urge you not to waste any money on the Kindle version of this book. Unlike every other book I have downloaded to Kindle, this one does not allow you to change the font size. All you can do is zoom in on the page. But that means you have to swipe left and right constantly to read each line. It makes for a very laborious time, and actually gave me a headache reading just two pages. I have tried to contact Amazon about refunding my purchase so that I can buy the paperback version, but as we all know, you can't reach anyone at Amazon to help with this. I had to file a claim with my bank to dispute the charge. I am willing to buy the hard book from Amazon, but they won't give me a way to contact them about this. VERY FRUSTRATING, especially since this book is for a class that has already started and I am now 3 days behind on the reading. DON'T BUY THE KINDLE VERSION!!!!!!! BUY THE PAPERBACK!!!!
I have ripped the book's binding off, 3-hole punched it, and put it in a binder for easy reference as I plan my lessons.
The ONLY negative about this book is the video. It is dated (there is a lesson detailing how to use Google as a search engine!) and a bit hokey. If you teach primary grades, you would get more out of the video than I did.
I know the price was minimal and I now know why. A complete waste since I won't be able to use the book I left it outside (air out) to see if the strong smell would somehow dissapear and I've had no luck.
Lesson learned: If the price is too good to be true!!! It probably is.
I can't even give it to goodwill since I know it's a health hazard! VERY DISAPPOINTED!
