Wonderful classroom resource!

I teach sixth grade and have taught The Giver many many years. I love teaching it so much but I really struggle to help my English language learners and my struggling readers to grasp everything that is happening in the book and what it all means. I have been dying for something like this to come out for many years---I just received this book yesterday and already, a girl in my class has checked it out and said that it was helping her to understand the story better (she's and English language learner). I just ordered two more copies to keep in my classroom. I love how faithful it is to the book. Of course, we will keep reading the traditional/ original version in class, but this book means that more of my students will understand the story and hopefully be able to participate in the discussions and activities we do. Yay for tools that help me reach ALL of my students:)
