From Cathy Duffy Reviews:


"It doesn’t get any more affordable for solid spelling coverage than theBuilding Spelling Skills series. However, you can’t describe these books as “fun” or “colorful.” Instead, I would use words like “comprehensive,” “thorough,” and “challenging.” Illustrations are mostly clip art, and books are printed in two colors...

Instead, lessons explore words from many languages and cultures including African languages, Arabic, Celtic, French, Hebrew, Italian, Persian, Scandinavian, Spanish, and more.
