    I teach 2nd grade in the inner city and we have been actively using this program for only 2 years. Yes, the questions are multiple choice and test only basic, literal story comprehension. But the excitement this simple program has generated about reading is like nothing I have ever seen. My kids read, read, and read. I have to "admonish" them to put their books away because we are doing something else. I have kids reading with their books hidden under their desks, reading at lunch, reading at home...reading when there is simply a few minutes "down time" inbetween tasks. The 3rd grade teachers really noticed a big difference this past fall with their incoming class having overall improved reading abilities. This was just after one year! Not at all a waste of money in my opinion...
