What Friends are Saying About, The Good and the Beautiful...

I have to give a shout out to the quality of the printing of the Jenny Phillipscurriculum. I had previously downloaded and printed out the first grade curriculum on my own but after it costing almost more than just purchasing it from her, it being in black and white, and having to bind it myself, I decided to purchase the book directly from her site when I needed the preschool curriculum. The paper and quality is so great. I was surprised at how nice it all is. Just buy the work books from her! Don't print it out yourself. :) it will cost you more and not nearly as good quality! - Sharon

I am using the Good and Beautiful. We do one lesson a day. I always add in extra reading, but we are usually done in less than an hour. Then we move on to math and science and whatever else we are doing that day. - Lisa
