What teachers who have used the Book Loan Program have said:
"I have really enjoyed teaching SECRETS OF THE BOOK with my fifth grade students. . . Because their enthusiasm was so high, I was able to teach many meaningful Common Core lessons that went along with the book. Students were able to answer questions that required them to think critically. They analyzed the characters in great depth, and learned what various tricks authors utilize in writing, such as foreshadowing and flashbacks.”—Annie Vega, 5th grade teacher
"I want to let you know how much the students and I appreciated and enjoyed your visit Monday. I loved the opportunity you offered me to make [LOSING IT] come alive. We felt privileged to learn your process of getting ideas, writing and publishing. The Teacher's Guide was well-organized, teacher-friendly and very helpful." --Laurie S., 8th grade teacher
