This is a great package of books
I ordered the Before Five in a Row Literature Package along with the curriculum book. This is an excellent bundle of books that contains all you need to run the Before Five in a Row curriculum. This is a good way to purchase these books because they can be hard to find or expensive to have them shipped individually. Rainbow Resource is a reliable company. I would buy from them again.

So fantastic to have all the books in one place so i can pick my own order and prepare lessons. Plus, the Kurds can go back and read their favorites

Just for information: The beautiful book "The Quiet Way Home" is available as an app from I-Tunes for smart phone OR tablet It isn't as good as cuddling around the real thing but it is better than $60+ for the book in used condition At least my kids get to enjoy all the fun sounds and a good story! I have never seen the book in person so I do NOT know if it is complete on the app (the app has options for letting you read OR reading aloud And each illustration can be done as a puzzle- which my youngest boy LOVES!)

My daughters have loved this Before Five in a Row book set You get all the books you need to complete the lessons and they are fun to read over and over again My oldest daughter is 12 now and has a great memory of us reading Blueberries for Sal together! The activities in the manual are fun quick and easy to do and having all these books together in one spot to purchase made it so easythank you for offering them together!

Many of these books are checked out or not in our library. I liked how easy it was to purchase them all at once without having to search for them.

I am using Five in a Row for two of my other children. We love it, so I wanted to start our youngest out on it.
Kadence L on Mar 19, 2018
Recommended by a friend. Needed something fun and easy to teach that's a unit study style.

Highly regarded by others who have used this product.

I wanted something to enjoy with my 3 yo. As a recent SAHM, it was important to feel grounded in something. Everyday.
Erica C on Jan 18, 2018
Recommended by a friend. Looks like a great start to school for my 4 yr old.

I wanted a simple program that will jumpstart my younger son on our homeschool journey.
Jennifer S on Dec 31, 2017
The books were already compiled so it saved time and the price was better than ordering the books individually. I knew that these would be all the in-print books needed for Before FIAR.
LAURA H on Dec 5, 2017
Beginning about 15 years ago I did FIAR 1-3 with my "first batch" of children. Now we've added to our family through adoption, We are starting earlier just for fun, and I needed BFIAR to begin our homeschool journey with ds3. So excited to have most of the books available in one package.
Karen A on Sep 25, 2017
My mom did it with me as a child and it was very cute
Chris L on Sep 11, 2017
To hard and too much trouble finding them at the library.
Charlene P on Sep 6, 2017
I am really enjoying using the Before Five in a Row curriculum with my preschooler! These books are engaging and perfect for this age, but I was having difficulty finding the books in our local library, so I decided it was worth investing and buying these books.
Sara B on Sep 5, 2017
LOVE LOVE LOVE Five in a Row and bought these for my unborn baby niece for her baby shower!
Christy M on Aug 28, 2017
I've seen this program recommended repeatedly by trusted sources, and I wanted to try a curriculum that is literature-driven because I am a firm believer in reading aloud to my kids. Glad to be able to start with BFIAR.
Mary L on Aug 16, 2017
I've had a few recommendations for this curriculum for my 5 year old son. I like how everything you need is all in one package!
Brandi B on Aug 13, 2017
Literature based and gentle for the little ones!
Kerry B on Jul 26, 2017
A friend of mine who has many years of home school teaching experience recommended this program. This is my first year home schooling my boys and i am excited to get started early september.

Our family has used the Five in a Row 1 with two of our children and really enjoyed the read aloud time and the book choices. We wanted to start our youngest daughter on preschool and decided to use Before Five in a Row!

A friend recommended the curriculum after using is with her five children.
Katrina B on Feb 14, 2017
This was the best price for all of these books. It is just so much more convenient to have the books without trying to find them at the library or buy them from different places. It takes the "leg work" out of it for you.
Wanda S on Jan 27, 2017
Highly recommended for home schooled students
Nedra N on Jan 5, 2017
I have 3 1/2 and 2 1/2 year old sons and was looking for something to do during the day to have a little more structure, yet nothing too rigid and boring. After talking with some friends and doing some research, this seemed like a really good option.
Heidi J on Jan 3, 2017
I needed structure as a parent without making my daughter FEEL like she was getting structured learning. I wish the reading list were revised to accommodate the out of print books. Some are nearly $60 if you do find them. Maybe something to refer us to a different book. But I saw on elsewhere that people somehow found "Go Along" books that are similar. So I will start at Before Five in a Row and see what can be done about the out of prints. The higher the volume the more books disappear.
Morris-April M on Dec 15, 2016
A friend of mine recommend this books for her 4 kiddos as homeschoolers.
Yuliana m on Nov 30, 2016
I am doing the Before 5 In A Row curriculum with my daughter and her friend (they are 3) and we love it so far. This was the cheapest place I could buy all the books.
Jessie C on Nov 17, 2016
My little guy is interested in his big brother's school work, but the books for FIAR volume 1 are a bit over his head. I want him to have his own learning experience to set him up for a lifetime of joy in the process.
Lisa W on Nov 10, 2016
This is a fabulous set of books for a Christmas gift! Many are challenging to find, and back in the day my children would read and re-read so many times it was worth it to just own the books.
Annikki D on Nov 6, 2016
I used this curriculum with my own children and am purchasing this for my daughter to use with my grandsons

Little Rabbit (Step Into Reading Level 1)
Little Rabbit (Step Into Reading Level 1)
BEST ANSWER: Originally, the full-sized longer version of the book was used with the BFIAR manual. However, that book is out of print and we are now including (#064538) Little Rabbit (Step Into Reading Level 1) in the literature package.
Are all of the books of the guide in this literature package? I thought I read somewhere some were out of print.
Gabrielle C on Mar 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: HI Gabrielle, Here is what is listed in our description for this product:
Package does not include several recommended books which are currently out of print. Out of print titles include: Quiet Way Home by Bonny Becker, Red Carpet by Rex Parkin, and Jennys Surprise Summer by Eugenie Fernandes. Please note that the Little Rabbit picture book format has recently gone out of print. We are substituting with the Step Into Reading version, but the story is simplified. If you would prefer to use the original, you will need to locate a copy from the library.
Are these hardcover or softcover books?
A shopper on May 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: All are softcover except "If Jesus Came to My House" and the "The ABC Bunny."
May I know what is the total weight for these 19 books? Thanks.
Abigail P on Mar 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Total weight (without packing material) is 5.03#.
Does the literature package for Before five in a row come with the manual also? Or do I have to purchase the manual separately?
User on Mar 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Before FIAR Manual is NOT included with the literature package. It must be purchased separately.
Does this literature package for Before Five in a Row come with the manual or do I have to purchase that separate?
A shopper on Mar 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The literature package for Before Five in a Row does NOT include the manual. It is only the literature books.
How does this currilum last for 36 weeks (avg. school year) ? There are only 19 books (25 counting out of print ones) Do you start the book cycle over once you finish all 25?
A shopper on Mar 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can take a week or two per book. I follow my chidlren's interests. We have done one book and a few weeks later, they want to read it again... I leave this option very open. Every time we read the book again, we can explore more topics related to the book. My preschooler will likely have done each book several times before she even reached KG year.
Is it possible to buy the curriculum guide by itself? I already own quite a few of these books.
A shopper on Feb 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, see item below or just type in "Before Five in a row" in the search.
