"it's okay but the BAD part is there is only a DVD and no way to access video files. I won't be purchasing the remaining volumes. Lap Tops we have in the classrooms DO NOT come with a DVD player. ALL VBS material and many other series' we use gives us the option to video file access. BUYER BEWARE. I wish I had known"
