It comes with a lot of books that you have to read, but they are worth reading. They provide lessons plans so you are ready to go.
It can be expensive, but if there are multiple kids in the family taught together it is not so bad. We spent about one thousand dollars for 2 year’s worth of curriculum, but use it for about 2 years for all three kids so it works out to be inexpensive overall.
Our kids love it too. They actually enjoy everything we are doing. They get so into the books that they never want me to stop the read-alouds because they want to know more.
I will order again when we finish this core.
