5th grade book: The English dialogues sound very authentic. 
The CD has interesting videos with good actors.

There’s no 6th grade equivalent for this book.

This book is awful. The target language is confused and introduced poorly in videos that obscure it under a torrent of pointless extra vocab. The book itself is a mess, each unit seems to be thrown together with little attention to logical progression in difficulty. The role plays are so long that it is impossible to do them without giving the students the script for homework first. There is no 6th grade book. We will not be using this one again next year. the deagyu book is far far better. Oh and the CD is very difficult to navigate. It is not popular either so nobody ever posts materials for it.
If you have a choice don't use this book.
