Homeschooler5 Stars Out Of 5June 8, 2009HomeschoolerMy nine year used this series as an independent study. He needed little assistance from me and enjoyed working alone with great success. This created a sense of accomplishment which created confidence. It is very good for building vocabulary and developing language skills.
