    Teacher response to the Playaway collection:
    My students (who are often resistant readers) have greatly enjoyed the use of the Playaways in my classes…I think this helps close the reading gap for them and has proven quite beneficial in their comprehension. More importantly, their enthusiasm for the novels we have read has increased …I cannot properly express how much it has improved my classes.
