Written for teachers by a teacher with a strong understanding of reading science, this title supports both the foundational skills and language comprehension components of reading, aligning well with expectations from strands B (Foundation of Language) and C (Comprehension – Understanding and Responding to Texts) of the new Language curriculum. Note that “Primary” in the UK where the author lives covers both the Primary and Junior divisions in Ontario classrooms.
