This book is great if you homeschool or want to help your child during the summer. The topics that this year covers includes: the Middle Ages, African Kingdoms, China, The American Revolution, Early Presidents and Politics, The Human Body - Circulation and Respiration, and Meteorology.

FYI: If you want to use it for homeschool, Hirsch has also made a teacher handbook. The Teacher Handbooks provide background about language arts, history and geography, visual arts, music, mathematics, and science. Each handbook has been written to look like the Core Knowledge Sequence. For each section in the Sequence, there is a matching section in the handbooks. The handbook is not necessary, but having the teacher guide probably will save you time.

I went back to school for special education after many years in a different job. These books not only helped me to do very well on the Praxis exam for elementary content knowledge, they were a big help in preparing for resource classes.

For Mothers and Others who have been away from the classroom for many years, these books are great refreshers.

I have a special needs child that I plan to go through this book with her to help her. I wished I had it when my other children were young. It has a lot of information and so far we are enjoying reading through it.

This series of books is very comprehensive regarding all subjects that should be taught in each grade. I'm learning new things, and my grandchildren are able to keep up with a higher learning standard than what they are getting in school. Highly recommended!

I have bought all these books through 6th grade. I love them. My kids love the stories in the literature section. I read the poetry to them and the stories. These help give them a little extra education that they don't get in school.

This series of books is fabulous. My husband and I even enjoy reading them. We bought three books in this series ( fourth grade, second and Kindergarten) and all of them are wonderful. The kids really enjoy reading them and they are packed full of information. Every parent should purchase these books for their kids/grandkids.

I'm very pleased with this whole line of books and purchase them each year as my granddaughter enters a new year at school. That way I can plan enrichment activities that are fun for me, appropriate for her and enhancing for her school experience. Then of course, I'm already set as her little brother moves along.

It is a book the teacher at school recommended us. It is interesting and covers the things they see in the classroom. I think it is very useful for the kids.

A great book for my fourth Grader! Everything from history to music, with wonderful easy to read language & some pictures too. We loved the Castle.

I wish we had found this when my children were in Kindergarten. This book in particular has a good history section, though the language section needed supplementing (I didn't have the workbook). The Core Knowledge series is fantastic, especially when you're looking for a good base for a curriculum. Be sure to use the textbook with the workbook, as both complement each other and fill out any weak or empty spots. My kids especially liked the idea of having everything in one book, including poetry and stories, art, and music, along with the math, language, and science. Overall, very comprehensive (especially when you use both books together), and encourages critical thinking and exploring. I've recommended this numerous times to other home school families, especially those just starting out. And don't forget, Core Knowledge also has a helpful website for parents and teachers, which I found very useful, as well.
