"We offer a class to help our fifth graders improve their reading comprehension by learning Greek and Latin roots. We had all the families purchase "Greek and Latin Roots" by Trisha Callella. The kids loved the activities and were able to use their new knowledge of prefixes and suffixes to determine the meaning of unknown words within their reading passages. Their favorite game from the book, the read-around review, was requested at every class! This book is terrific."

"I love my purple Greek and Latin Roots and my blue More Greek and Latin Roots books. I have had both books for three years, and I have worn the purple book out. I love how the questions have clues embedded in the sentence. Students love the practice with the matching and the Around the Word Review. Thanks for making such a great product."
