The main text alone would be a great resource, but combined with the activity and test books, this program is an absolute joy. I don't spend much time at all planning lessons, perhaps 30 minutes every weekend choosing worksheets and picking up library books to enrich our study. And for all this, it is priced quite low -- a steal for all the information that your children will be getting! It's also nice to be able to teach all of my children from one book, despite age differences, and many of the enrichment activities can be done or at least "assisted" by young children as well.
I highly recommend this book!
