An amazon review said:

As a reading specialist and a member of the ELA Common Core committee for grades 5-6, I am looking for more information and resources to help roll out Common Core. This resource gives a detailed explanation of CC, and a breakdown of the skills the students need to master by the end of the year as well as activities and strategies to use in the classroom for each of the strategies. It also gives you plenty of ideas to incorporate some of the other CC standards so that you are not just teaching one standard but a number of them. I can’t wait for the grade 6-12 edition to come out! I have purchased a number of resources and none of them come close to containing the information and suggestions that this one does. Common Core is hard enough to wrap your mind around but I have a much clearer idea of what it is now and what we need to incorporate and how to do it! It truly is a must have.
