that this is the most complete and well elaborated material I have seen in my 15 years as a teacher. Peace for the American people, specially
in the New Orleans."
"I received the books...EXCELLENT BOOKS! I've been needing a simplified way to help teach sight-reading and promote self-study. I
will suggest them to my students and probably buying more of them!"
