Like I said earlier, if you are thinking of homeschooling and are just starting, you're working with little ones before they start school or you want to continue learning while they're off for summer break, Five In A Row is a great tool. It was the first thing recommended to me when I started homeschooling and I'm so glad it was. They also have a holiday addition with books and ideas for holidays, a cookbook for recipes to go with various books and a Bible supplement to go with some (all?) volumes. They have message boards online to help you and they'll ask you which volume you're "rowing" ;0) Cute.
There you have it... my glowing review of FIAR. Check it out if you're looking for something that allows you to snuggle up with your kids and learn together. We loved it and I think you will too.
