    A great unit study that my son was reluctant to start (“too much reading”), but is now happy to work on each day. The suggested further research has been well used and the discussions about amazing animal feats have been great to listen to! I will be using this product over again for upcoming students.

  2. Mieke Noordman

    My son, who’s all about animals, loves this book. Easy to read, even though English is his second language. I noticed that it invites him to search for more information and I love that.
    Thank you for this unit!

    Just as I thought, this product is amazing! I love the fact that it so comprehensive and in one easy to read book! A lot of thought has gone into this product and I am so glad I purchased it for my daughter. She has already delved into it and is finding some neat facts on Animal Migration.
