Marie’s Words review by Christian Homeschool Family

MaryEllen says, “The English language is so full of descriptive, colorful words, and I want my children to be able to harness as many of those words as they can in their writing!

Economics for Everybody review by Roads to Everywhere

Karla says, “It is aptly named Economics for Everybody because we all got something out of it without having to have an in-depth understanding of math or government.

Editor in Chief review from Learning Well

Alicia says, “Editor in Chief is a workbook that’s basically comprised of a series of essays, bulletins, letters, and more. There’s a catch though. There’s loads of grammatical mistakes and your kid needs to find them.
