    Sonya Haskins
    I normally do not like workbooks, especially reading comprehension workbooks because they are usually very BORING with pointless stories. Despite that prejudice, I actually liked Claims to Fame. The book contains twelve short biographies (each approximately a page and a half), then there are several pages of questions and activities related to the reading. I like the fact that the author used biographies, which seems to mean more than stories of little talking chipmunks or imaginary best friends.The author didnt stick with the typical questions of what was this story about? either. Those sorts of questions drive me crazy. Her questions are more along the lines of find the facts type questions such as where was this person born, who was their first music teacher, list the cities this person lived in, etc. All of this information is in the reading selection. The author also has activities, such as asking the student to draw a picture of the person in the biography, matching antonyms or homophones, writing a short (three sentences) letter to someone, etc. If your student needs help with reading comprehension, I normally recommend simply allowing them to read books of interest to them at or below their reading level and then talking with the child about the material in the book. If you prefer to do something in a workbook format, however, I would definitely send the highest recommendation for this series.
