"Our students and our parents love Big Books, by George! We have expanded our inventory and are using the Danny collection for our Title III family engagement activities. Parents volunteer to read to students or to be read to by students one-on-one, answer questions and complete writing assignments. The questions and writing activities are included in the back of each book! Thank you Big Books, by George! You make a difference in the lives of our teachers and students!"
- Anna DeLeon Director of Bilingual/ESL programs, Everman ISD
"I have found parental involvement to be a focus of many district goals. The Danny Collection is a perfect fit! The colorful pictures and topics are relevant for many students and are easy to implement in any type of literacy activity with parents. It helps parents support at home the work being done in classrooms. I am excited to see how other districts make use of this wonderful collection! Thank you Big Books, by George! for always having wonderful products for Spanish speaking students and families."

"BBBG promotes oral language development, available in English and Spanish in different contents, are fabulous for shared reading, provide open ended questions, use real world pictures and they are BIG! BBBG are perfect for whole group instruction and individual student use. Needless to say, our teachers were "wooed" by the WO-WO clear and white activity sheets they use to write on and wipe off, which adds rigor to the lesson."
- Rosie Sandoval, BESL Coordinator, Duncanville ISD
"Language to literacy is a key approach resulting in student achievement. Big Books, by George! facilitates this essential approach. These big books offer a greater probability of less teacher talk and more student talk. Students become engaged and motivated with the life-like photos and readings. They naturally express their thinking and learning. These exceptional resources, published in Spanish and English, represent a commitment to educating all students. This is why we committed to purchasing the best of the best. Teachers will thank you."
- R.C. Rodriguez, former Director of Bilingual and ESL Education - Northside ISD
"Our teachers and students LOVE George! The Big Books, by George! products motivate our student to read more than any other product we use."
- Pam Frederick, Special Education/ Language Arts Coordinator, Arlington ISD
"I have developed and supported dual language programs in Round Rock ISD, Austin ISD (in Texas) and Kent School District in Kent, WA. All three programs have been based on the model developed by Drs. Leo and Richard Gomez. The Big Books, by George! texts provide rich language structures that allow oral language to be taught at a higher level than the reading level. The content also provides a rich resource for thoughtful writing. Our students love the books and want to read them daily. Our teachers appreciate how the books can be used in Reading, Science, and Social Studies to support content and language acquisition. I would not hesitate to recommend this resource to any school teacher or district leader who is looking for top quality resources to develop literacy and language."
- Dr. Rosa M. VIllareal, Director of Dual Language Program, Kent School District, Kent, WA.
"Richard and I are thrilled to have located a new Publisher, Big Books, by George! These high quality non-fiction materials in Spanish would be a welcome addition to any DLE classroom for Language of the Day Instruction! Additionally, The BBBG titles come in Big Book format. Big Books are an essential component in PK-3 and in some cases, PK-5 education. Writing Prompts, Specialized vocabulary, and Research Opportunities embedded in every books. Great people and a Great Product!"
