Review Highlights:

Lapbooks are a common way to incorporate many skills into one package. This book expands on this technique. I like the way that the book incorporates a variety of approaches to researching a topic and explaining it to the classroom or just for themselves. Some of the activities include writing, drawing, skits, speeches and more. I wish that I could have been given a few samples of the bigger kit so that I can see how the full system works, but even without the original resources I decided that this will be a valuable tool for my kids and I plan to buy the Pennsylvania books.

The instructions were easy to follow and pretty easy to adapt. There are some projects that would work better in a traditional setting rather than a homeschooling setting, but there are workarounds. As a parent I also like that you don't "need" the extras to get the work done. The materials required to complete projects are inexpensive and easily obtainable.

This is a good product that I would recommend to other parents.
