Rated 3 out of 5 by from Misleading Description I found this product description misleading as I placed the order to get "the accompanying reproducible activity book." The Reproducible Activity Book does NOT come with this order and, as it turns out, is not even available through Indigo. Very disappointing. I do, however, recommend the 'Oxford Picture Dictionary for the Canadian Content Areas.' It has relevant and current vocabulary related to high school courses and is an excellent resource for early English learners.
