  1. Smuk, spændende,meget brugbar og relevant.
    Egner sig til mellemtrinet i engelsk.
    Alle skoler burde straks bestille et klassesæt til skolebiblioteket.

    Bøgerne er rigtig fine og teksterne er gode og relevante. Lærervejledningen er som tidligere nævnt superb. Den har mange og varierende opgavetyper. Jeg vurderer den til at være perfekt til min 6. klasse.

  4. Til undervisning i engelsk ja – men også fremragende at inddrage i flerfaglige sammenhænge på mellemtrinnet. Fx i forhold til den aktuelle, danske debat om at følge Bhutans eksempel med et lykke-index.

    Enhedslisten foreslår, at der sættes politiske mål om et “lykke-national-index” som et supplement eller alternativ til bruttonaltionalproduktet – og ligesom i mange andre lande er der bred politisk lydhørhed for, at der skal tænkes anderledes og på andet end netop økonomisk vækst.

    Alle CFU´er bør anskaffe bog-delen i klassesæt til udlån til skolerne.
