5 of 5 I love these lessons plans! September 30, 2020
Reviewer: Jennifer M.  
I love these lessons plans! I can't imagine how daunting (and time consuming) it would be to organize and break down all of the work for one unit into lessons. These are great guides. We do history three days a week, so I adapt the lesson plans to make them work for us. I'm grateful for this resource!

5 of 5 I am so excited about this program. June 12, 2019
Reviewer: Sherrie H.  
I am so excited about this program. Every page reflects the care and faith that has been poured into it. I feel like I have found a program that will not only educate my children, but truly help them with their faith by using living books that will also inspire their learning. I am so grateful that for the first time I will not have to 'tweak' the program to match the way I want to teach or to match my Catholic beliefs. I am excited for the upcoming year. Thank you and God bless.
