I have been using this series with my children, including Get Ready for the Code and Beyond the Code, since it was first recommended to me six years ago. Having one child with learning disabilities who needs visual ques and repeated reviews, I have found this series to be a great tool. I would recommned it to any student who enjoys a workbook type study. It reinforces spelling and vocabulary skills with minimal teacher involvement. The wacky drawings often get colored in as a reward for time spent on the lessons!
