Great Book...Not so great recording
Finding Fish is a great and captivating read. I have enjoyed reading it with many of my students
I disliked that this version of the recording cut out parts of the text. In purchasing this version to be able to use in my reading-based class, I was hoping that the whole book would be included in the recording. Much to my surprise, pages upon pages were cut out and skipped, making this almost useless in my classroom.
