  1. Like the usage of great authors to teach how to write well. Have you noticed how so few books today actually help you imagine that you are there?

  2. Since my oldest are just in 8th grade, this was more fun and eye opening than career determining. However, it did give us great ideas on what fields they may be interested in and how we can go about pursuing those interests.

  3. Husband and I really like the writing curriculum – we love how great literary works are used as examples to learn from and emulate. Thanks for the opportunity to review this!

  4. We got to review both the Career Planning and Roots and Fruits. Both are working out very well for us. Love the multi-age value of Roots and Fruits and the Career Planning was perfect timing for us!


  5. It has been a pleasure reviewing these products. I was blessed to receive all 4 items and found them very helpful for my children.
