So far I have 3 books in this series (2nd, 3rd & 6th). This resource is a good measuring stick for your child's education: if your child is able to fluently read and understand most of the stories in the LA and SS sections, independently or with little assistance, then rest assured that he/she is truly on or above grade level. The classic stories are wonderful and the social studies (history & geography) sections are really good too. We also enjoy the fine are and music sections. The math sections in these resource books (to me) aren't as strong as the other areas mentioned. However, it still gives a good basis of what your child should know.
I've previously read two other books in this series, and this one delivered up to expectations. It's just a nice overview for what second-graders should know when they are done with their grade, and it touches on all the classic subjects. We use it as a supplement for homeschooling.
I bought this book while planning out our third year of home education. Our first year was through a public e-school, and we in the middle of the second year for various reasons. Now that we've got the hang of going it on our own, I am looking to round out her education. The author has very strong ideas about how schools should be reformed. I do agree on the school reformation, but I did not buy the book for that reason. Luckily, he keeps the personal views short.
This book is not just a list of topics that children need to learn each year. Included are classic stories and fables; history, geography, and social studies lessons; easy to understand math lessons; as well as visual arts and music. Much is left out when teachers must spend time on remedial studies and teaching to tests. This book helps provide enrichment for families that public school. It also serves as a great planning guide and works as an addition to home school curriculum.
