This is a very sweet early grammar/reading book. I'm using it with my 8 year old son. He really enjoys the stories and I have his narrate to me rather than do any written work. Read morePublished 2 months ago by littlebird

This book is a good basic language arts curriculum. Easy to use and the lessons are short. It is not real in depth but it can easily be expanded on.Published 11 months ago by Sarah Hahn
