What Teachers are Saying about HIP Books

  • I spied the HIP Books at Reading For the Love of It and my heart soared! Paul Kropp and all of those great HIP Book authors kept so many of my kids reading over the years. If someone read one of the books, they went on to read all of the books -- and we had quite a collection! I recommend these high interest, low vocab books. Quality reads.
