What Teachers are Saying about HIP Books

  • I am a developmental pediatrician and work with many children who have learning differences. I find [HIP books] to be extremely helpful for my patients. The clarity with which they are written, specifically the storylines complexity without "extra" detail, allow many of my patients to excel.  Thank you very much for your work.

    Jan McGonagle, M.D., Developmental Pediatrician Greenfield, NH
