⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Alison said, “Students love to color.  It’s a given.  I like to occasionally give students a break from reading/following along, and I’ve discovered it’s much better if their attention is focused on something like coloring while they listen.  This was great.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐ Recklissa said, “This was a great option for students while we listened to the audiobook. Great extra activity to keep kids engaged and focused on listening to the story.”
