"Comprehending text is a complex, higher-level task for early readers. Turning from learning to read (a first-grade skill) to reading to learn has proven difficult for my 2nd graders. Braun has created a kid-friendly resource to make this task more manageable. Her activities provide research-based strategies to boost comprehension and confidence. There are so many ways to use this resource--whole group, small group, RTI, or homework. The possibilities are endless! I can't wait to use this beautiful book in my classroom!"--Jennifer Dower, 2nd-grade teacher
"This is the second book I have of Hannah Braun's, and I am so impressed and in love with it. As a stay-at-home mom, I am always looking for ways to help my sons with their reading - I know it's a fundamental skill and with this book I can work on that skill at home. The activities are simple to understand and do at home. You will not be disappointed using this book to help your child or student boost their reading skills."--Jennifer Kantola, stay at home mom of 2 boys
"As a second-grade teacher, I feel reading comprehension is one of the trickiest skills to teach without disenchanting and discouraging emerging readers. The Big Book of Reading Comprehension: Grade 2 is just the resource to combat these problems. The passages are engaging and interesting, and also expose them to a variety of text genres. Plus, the additional skills practice not only addresses Common Core Standards, but does so in a meaningful and memorable way."--Amanda Jensen, 2nd grade teacher, Layton, UT
