If a Harcourt rep desires to illustrate the finest quality
Of the In-Step Complete Package (the "What's New" brochure, page 20)

With teacher's notes, and five whole books, like "Marty Solves a Mystery,"
And a demonstration card that exemplifies a reading strategy--
Assuming level N approximates a package from the Level T.
In short in matters applicable to an ELL exhibitor,
It is the very model of an In Step Mini-Sampler!
