Review of Pines to Vines Digital Science Book

Posted on: by Kyle | No Comments

We have two new reviews of our Pines to Vines digital science book to share!  These reviews were done my speech pathologists who work with a wide range of kids.  One of the things they both mentioned was how useful these books were for differentiated instruction.  That’s one of the primary things we wanted to accomplish, making the curriculum available for all children, regardless of their reading level.

The first review was written by Kristin Cummings.  Kristen is a school based SLP who writes the Simply Speech blog.  The second review was written by The Appy Ladies, a group of 9 speech pathologists with a wide range of backgrounds.  Their site has many resources including app reviews and materials for SLP’s.  Definitely worth checking out.
