Worth the money.
Our local public library didnt have all the books for the program so we just bit the bullet and bought the set. I'm so glad I did, because we loved every single book and my kids ask to re-read them all the time. Wonderful keepsakes and enjoyable additions to your home library.

Award winning.
I just like keeping all the books we read so this was not a difficult choice. We stamp them as our library books and can loan them to our cousins when they are missing one. My children love re-reading good books and these are all award winners. With the FIAR Program there is many ways to reintroduce these books.

We have only been doing this program one week, but my 5 year old son and I live it!! It is a perfect start to our homeschool journey and really look forward to continuing with this and it's following program.

I ordered this to go along with the vol 1 manual. I've missed the cut off for preschool registration, but I really want my 4 year old to start his education right now. I'm super curious about homeschooling my son, but everyone in my circle has told me not to do it. This is my way of trying it out to see if its a good fit for us.

Learning through stories is the best way to learn! The lesson stays in your head better. Everyone can relate and connect to stories more. I loved volume 2 and so did my child :)

We are not a homeschool family, but these seemed like a great selection of books at a very doable price. We also got the Five in a Row book to go with it to get the most out of our reading time and supplement our Spanish Immersion program with learning at home.

I believe creating an excitement in learning for our children is key to their success as children, students and later adults. These books and the five in a row series is a great way to establish that.
Helen M on Sep 13, 2016
Literature based unit studies. It's easily integrated into our day because we already love to read and now can springboard off the topics and ideas presented in the books as interest based educational subjects. Also the package here at Rainbow Resource is the best price even though we already have a book or two from the list.
Rebecca B on Sep 1, 2016

If I purchase this and the printed volume 1 manual, do I need a math supplement or any other subject for that matter? I am going to be homeschooling my 7 year old 2nd grader for the first time this fall. Thanks in advance for the input.
A shopper on Jun 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I found it comprehensive for pre-K, but added math and learning-to-read material for Kindergarten. It does a good job covering art and literature and history/social studies; math and science are covered, but they're kind of lightweight, IMO. For second grade, I'd definitely get a separate math program.
Are the books new?
A shopper on Sep 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the books are new. Only the books in the Titles in Package section are included. I had had a few books arrive with damage, but Rainbow Resource Center was really easy to work with. I was getting tired of trying to collect books individually (or doing the books out of order with the library), and the price was right at Rainbow. If you are collecting these books for Five In a Row, this will have a lot of the books, and some of the hard to find books still need to be bought elsewhere, but it condenses your list that you have to walk around with (garage sales, thrift stores, etc...), significantly.
Does this come as one large book or all the individual books??
A shopper on Oct 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Individual: some hardback, some paperback.
I will be homeschooling my 7 year old second grader for the first time this fall. Do we need to purchase a math supplement or any other subject in addition to Volume 1 manual and lit. package? Thanks in advance for your input.
A shopper on Jun 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Most people do add a math curriculum to go with the FIAR. Although there is some math in FIAR it is probably not enough. Most people also supplement for language arts too, especially phonics and grammar, also printing/handwriting. Saxon math, Right start math and Math Mammoth are some examples of what people use along with FIAR, but you can use whatever works best for you and your son. We really enjoy Miquon Math. For Language Arts my family really loves Brave Writer, it has a similar philosophy in some ways to FIAR.

How many books come in the pack? Are they all you need to go with manual #1?
L W on Mar 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I believe it's all the ones pictured, which was 18 (i think). It's all you need for the manual. The only ones not included are titles that are out of print. You may be able to find those on eBay or something, but don't have to have them.
Can I take books off the list? Since I already own some?
A shopper on Nov 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This particular set is a package deal. But you can search for the needed Individual books. There is a book list that you can follow and just the books you don't already own :)
Are the books in this package paperback or hardcover or a mix?
A shopper on Oct 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Five in a Row Volume (FIARV1) #763 – Rag Coat (hardcover) #765 – Papa Piccolo (hardcover) #772 – Stopping By the Woods on a Snowy Evening (hardcover) #23958 – Pair of Red Clogs (hardcover) #40850 – Another Celebrated Dancing Bear (hardcover) #6621 – Very Last First Time (hardcover) All other titles are softcover.
Does this come with the Volume 1 manual?
A shopper on Aug 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. The Volume 1 FIAR manual (#19808) is a separate purchase. This is just the literature books used with that course.
