The stories are written by well-known short story authors like O. Henry, Sarah Orne Jewett, Saki, and Judith Viorst. The reading comprehension questions are divided into five sections which correspond to the acronym 'GREAT': Getting the meaning of the story, Reviewing the story elements, Examining vocabulary words, Adding words to a passage, and Thinking about the Story. There are 4 questions per section, each worth 5 points, so the student's score on a 100 scale is very easy to compute. After having an adult check his/her answers (note that there is no answer key printed in the book), the student is responsible for writing his/her score on a Progress Chart and then charting the score on an accompanying Progress Graph (a little practice in graphing).
This book, Level D, is the first book in the series. There are 10 books in the series, which extends up to Level H (with two books per level). Although we are just now beginning to use the book, I anticipate that my 5th grader will enjoy it, and benefit from it, immensely.
