My daughters love this curriculum. When I asked them if they wanted to try another reading curriculum in the fall, they immediately said "No!" There is a wonderful variety of stories in this curriculum. You can find excerpts from famous classics to short stories written for this curriculum. There are fantasy stories, poetry, non-fiction, biographies, etc. I appreciate the variety as my girls and I have a tendency to read fiction, and this curriculum helps my girls to appreciate all sorts of reading resources. The worksheets that come along with each story are educational, teaching different foundations of reading, like identifying the climax and resolution of a story, cause and effect, inferences, etc. I appreciate that the stories reflect the kinds of biblical principles that are important in our home; and, some of the readings cover bible verses. The teacher's manual is helpful in providing great questions to ask the student as she reads along.
