    Lessons are well marked out. They are a nice size for one day and a good variety. Some of the instructions are not the clearest, but maybe that is just us since it is our first year with them! I'm not fond of the way they have laid out the enrichment exercises. They are not difficult or long to do and they add variety. I can't imagine any child not enjoying them. But all the enrichment exercises are listed together in the back of the parents' edition. Not a big deal, just an unnecessary inconvenience. Binding makes it inconvenient to manage. This would work better as a spiral bound. I got the kids spiral bound for just under $4 at Office Depot. Unfortunately, the parent version doesn't give as much margin, so I'm afraid I'd lose information.

    Thorough and comprehensive. Enjoyable literature selections with many assessment and activity types to choose from. Clear explanation for the new home educator. A great series!
