Just what our school needed

This books are exactly what we needed at our school. We didn't have any decodable that were UFLI aligned. These books make it so much easier to know which books my students need to be reading. And the best part the kids love them. When I was unpacking them they were so excited they wanted to start reading them right away. And once they were done one story they wanted the next one! Thank you for creating books that work on each skill and have a great story.
