Rated 5 out of 5 by doubletwins Good content but poor construction
I've been using BJU Press Reading 2 for 7 years. The content is great. This was the first year I received the workbooks and the bindings have changed, and not for the better from my teaching perspective. The bindings were updated to make it easier to pull the pages out. Now ALL the pages fall out all the time. It's a constant struggle to keep the work books together and tidy. There are holes for inserting the workbooks into a 3-ringed binder but if I have to buy a binder then why not just have them attached in the original binding better? The cover hasn't stayed on since the first use. It would be nice if BJU press either offered loose pages for those who want them or bound workbooks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MomOnTheRoad Good Stories!
If there was anything I would change about the BJU Reading 2 is that the binding on the workbook not be meant to tear out the pages. We homeschool and I do not like having pages falling out all the time. Last year it was not even 2 weeks and there were pages falling out. This year I went and paid $4.00 to have the book spiral bound. Just a thought for BJU... Otherwise my son really enjoys the stories and pictures!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Steph Just what we needed!
I had tried another manufacturer for my son's 1st grade work. I was overwhelmed and confused by the teacher's manuals once I received them. And within a few short weeks my son was so bored with the readers he didn't want to read them and it was a struggle. There was no workbook to go along with the readers either. This workbook is fantastic! He loves the bright colorful pictures and the ease of use. Just what we needed after a bad experience. I'll be using this next year for my son and daughter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by lauraS I love it.
My 2nd grader enjoys the stories from the reader. He is eager to read the next one and also will do the cooresponding workbook pages without much fuss. This is a great product.

My daughter can usually read the directions with little or no help and it is suited for her age.

Rated 3 out of 5 by curls It is helpful at the beginning of the second grade school year for reviewing phonics and reading comprehension.
The Bob Jones Reading Worktext is helpful at the beginning of the second grade school year for reviewing phonics and reading comprehension. 2 As the students progress in their reading skills, I have to supplement with other ways to assess their comprehension and higher order thinking skills. In a way, the students outgrow the worktext as it is too simple for them by the second semester. If our school did not have a separate phonics curriculum, I may have used more of the pages for phonics reinforcement, so it might be helpful for a school that has a combined reading and phonics curriculum with Bob Jones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DawnE Helpful accompaniment to the excellent readers.
I love the reading material for all the early level readers. The workbook helps so much with phonics instruction, It also helps me to gain insight into my children's understanding of the story they have read. It is very well produced and easy to use each day, without spending hours on preparation.
