My son absolutely hated history before we started this. I was bound and determined this year to take a
more textbook approach. After a few months of that I realized that I didn't even remember one single thing that we had been learning over the past 3 months. So, then I started questioning my children about what we had learned in history so far and they didn't remember anything either. So, it was back to the drawing board to find something else. Our local homeschool store recommended your program and I have to say that all 3 (13, 12, & 8) of my kids love it. My oldest son (13) said that for the first time he actually feels like he is learning something about history!
