To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Ce livre, fort intéressant au demeurant, n'est pas au format kindle : c'est une collection d'images de doubles pages du livre papier, en format paysage, police deux fois plus petite que la plus petite des polices paramétrable sur mon kindle. Pas de possibilité de passer en portrait, de grossir les caractères, et de rechercher les mots dans le dictionnaire. Donc à peine lisible : je n'arrive pas à lire les notes en marge (police 2 ??!!!).
A "gold standard" book I have used for many years in my classroom. Mary Pope Osborne knows just how to explain history to children, in a way that is interesting, intriguing, and age-appropriate. Her coverage of Pompeii in this book is especially well done, and I love how she deals with the tragedy with just the right amount of emphasis, but not too much, and then helps us learn how the Pompeiians/Romans lived through things we discovered in Pompeii.
We love all the research guides for MTH. They are written at a higher Lexile level than the stories but it makes them fun to read together. My 6 year old doesn't have the patience to read through a research guide the entire way through on her own but together it makes for a fun project...she gets to tell me about what happened in the story to Jack & Annie and together we learn some fun facts about whatever time/place the story was about.
