I liked the broken down steps that these worksheets offered. I did find the comprehension questions short, but for focusing only on Summaries and Main Idea, these books are great.
The pages are not overtly decorated and are appropriate for students in upper middle school/junior high (6-9th).
Most of the questions of the paragraphs are written as if they might appear on a standardized test, which is helpful, but it is unfortunately lacking in the development of written out answers.
What also seems to be missing: an approximent reading level for each passage. I would have liked to see a few passages from reading level 2 or 3: so do stay in the 4th-8th grade levels.
Overall: this is great to effectively check in repeatedly that a student can Summarize and find the Main Idea of a short piece quickly.
