I recently started homeschooling my daughter. She had previously been in vpk with Abeka and kindergarten with BJU. She could already read basics so I thought this would be a review for her. It confused her. Many of the pictures were hard to figure out what they wanted without me getting the teachers manual out. Each day they introduce a new rule. This got very tedious for her and I. We are now searching for something different. As a side note I love the Math books.
