    These are great packages! I can't decide which one I want! Can I win both? I'm glad to be reminded about Benjamin Collier's book. Just last week I was talking to someone who teaches writing to AS kids and was asking about resources. I wanted to recommend Ben's book, but could neither remember his name nor his book title. Thanks again!
