"This has easily been the most natural and relaxed curriculum I’ve used in my entire eight years of homeschooling. Ever." Shelly
"I can't recommend this curriculum to enough people. We used it for my daughter's 4th grade year. I would say the only problem we had was that she loved the books so much that several times when I would assign her the reading, she would tell me she finished the book already!!! She took them to bed and read them over and over all year. We absolutely love this curriculum." Tonya F.
"We just finished up the early American package and loved it! The kids looked forward to the stories and retained so much info. I was surprised how much they learned!" Tamara
"Our family thoroughly enjoyed the Early American Intermediate study this year. History comes alive with this wonderful collection of books!" Stacia
For those of you who are not familiar with our studies, here's what they are: big piles of wonderfully written, beautifully illustrated, and impeccably researched literature organized by an easily adaptable, clear, simple-to-follow study guide. We began writing our study guides way back in 1986 and have been improving them ever since. We believe that teaching history using the best literature available is not only the greatest way to teach this important subject, it's the most fun, interesting, engaging, and thought-provoking approach. And our guides also make it the easiest! We've put years into researching each guide: sorting through hundreds and hundreds of titles to find the very best books. We break down each collection of literature into approachable lessons with do-able reading assignments, conversation provoking comprehension questions, fun activities, vocabulary lists, and more. For sample pages, click here.
Additionally, as established publishers, if we find a wonderful book that is no long readily available because it's out of print, we search out copyright holders, restore text and illustrations, and bring these lost treasures back in to print! Ensuring that the lost literary treasures of yesteryear are available to today's families is one of the passions that drives us! Did you know that the following titles are all titles that are exclusively published by Beautiful Feet Books?
