Customer Reviews

"I use them and love them! My supervisor while I was doing my student teaching used them and I fell in love... sometimes I adapt the activities tho!" – SLP (Aug. 2018)

"I have used these books and appreciated that they were written to use with different levels. The kids love them, too!"  SLP (May 2016)

"I love these! They have come in handy." – SLP (May 2016)

"I was so impressed with your books and manual that I have passed the info to my Case Manager and Director of Special Education for consideration of using these materials with our Special Education students who are "self-contained." We both loved the fact that the books had 4 levels which would benefit every child in her room. We also loved the way the manual had all that wonderful vocab targeted which could be expanded on throughout the instructional day. Again I say, wonderful product!" – SLP

"I am so ecstatic about the output of oral language I am getting from the books! I was a little unsure how a group of my 1st graders would do because I usually have to present a fireworks show for them to stay on task and engage with me. They LOVED the books, and the language I got out of them was more than I've gotten from them lately, and for one kid, the most I've gotten EVER! THANK YOU!" – SLP

"The kids love the Crezca/Grow Language and Story Books. I've been using them with many of my kids and I make use of the different levels and of the 2 languages. By this time I've transitioned to the English stories for many of the kids. The illustrations are very vibrant and the kids find them funny. Some have their favorite pictures. Many of the similar books that I've used in the past have stick figures/ or black and white drawings and you cannot compare the attention that these stories command because of the illustrations. (By the way, the manual is OUTSTANDING!!!)" Bilingual SLP
