5 of 5 Incredibly insightful February 5, 2024
Reviewer: Elisabeth M. from PA, United States  
The starter guide not only explains the curriculum layout and method, it also explains WHY history is important. Much food for thought here for me, not only as a homeschooling mother but also just as a person seeking the truth.
