Finally a site I can use to help my son improve his reading comprehension skills.

This site is very helpful!!

I have recently started using the site and I absolutely love it. I am starting to see much improvement in my child's reading ability. I have a first grade daughter and she really loves to read and THIS HELPS. THANK YOU

These are very helpful with my ESL students. We do a lot of annotation and citing evidence and the stories work well with these skills.

Good simple story to teach sequence.

Good content.

I love this site I am having trouble with my son. He is in 2nd grade and can read up to 80 words per minute but they want him reading 100 words per minute, so I have been coming on your site and printing pages for him and it seems to help. Thank You, Sincerely...Amanda

I'm so sorry that your school is pushing your son at that point in the year. He was right on target! By the end of 2nd grade, "according to college readiness..." the goal is 90 WPM. Of course this is a wonderful site! I'm using it to send home summer reading.
Sincerely, Susan
