What Teachers are Saying about HIP Books

  • During my visit to Bocage Secondary School, St Lucia (a rural school with a lot of struggling readers)….the Principal said that [a] teacher had started using the 8 copies of the [HIP] book they had available to do reading with her entire class...the students responded really well to the book and enjoyed it so much that word spread and the teachers ended up passing those books throughout the school, class by class. [They requested more HIP books!]
