Homeschool mother of 21 Stars Out Of 5Just a Study Guide- Many additional resources needed to teachOctober 20, 2014Homeschool mother of 2Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1This is just a study guide, there is very little to no actual teaching content. The author has done the research to find what she feels is age appropriate, and I would imagine to her, truthful content. In order to actually teach anything, you need to use several other books and resources recommended by the guide. It is strictly the lesson plans and what pages/activities and chapters to read in the other books that she recommends you purchase in order to teach your students.

In my opinion, I didn't really like the reviews I read or the content I found when using Amazon's Look Inside feature on some of the main recommended books. I would not use them and expect to teach truth to my children.
If you choose to purchase this guide just be careful, do your own research on the additional material. Also expect to spend a decent amount of money upfront to actually purchase the additional materials needed.
It may be a wonderful tool for some, it was not at all what I was expecting.
