Book Review: Callan's Beginner Essentials

This week's blog post is a book review--my first. You can order this book HERE.


  1. Thanks for the book review, Kelly. (And thanks for the book, Nancy!) I've recommended that the library at my institution buy a copy for instructors.

    1. Bonnie, that's great! I am going to recommend that each of the other five low-level or literacy teachers at my agency get his/her own classroom copy in order to comply with the spirit of the copyright and help Nancy break even on this much needed labour of love. --KM

  2. Thanks, Kelly, for noticing that the copyright allows the purchasing teacher to make as many copies as desired, but is not a site licence. It's extremely hard to break even when a library or a school buys one copy to use with multiple classes. Thank you so much for the review, Kelly. I hope to meet you in person one day!

  3. Great book review. I left a comment on your youtube page too. :)
