Reviews - What do our customers think?
Homeschooler using this book as a resource  Aug 16, 2007
I have been very pleased with this book. I love to get ideas out of it for our homeschool.
Good for Kids  Jun 15, 2007
When I bought this book from this site, I knew it was a steal! My daughter has already been helped so much by its stories, activities, and short biographies of famous people. I plan to eventually buy all of the books in the Core Curriculum series. They're just like vitamins and vegetables, they're good for kids!
very good book  Nov 2, 2006
This series is very good to my kid. It covers not only literature and math, but science, art, history, etc as well. Both my kid and I like it very much.
excellent  Feb 25, 2006
This is an excellent book. My husband and I read many passages for my son. He likes them very much. They enrich his mind tremendously. My son's school somehow does not provide this much content. We would miss a lot fine literature, history, and geography without this book. Thanks to the authors. I do see the math part is too easy for second graders nowadays. For practice, we use Beestar math and ELA (a wonderful web site Its free weekly exercises are about right and very helpful. Overall, this is an outstanding book loaded with fine content. I highly recommend it.
Great series!  Oct 27, 2005
This series is great if you homeschool or want to help your child during the summer. If you want to use it for homeschool, Hirsch has made a teacher handbook. The Teacher Handbooks provide background about language arts, history and geography, visual arts, music, mathematics, and science. Each handbook has been written to look like the Core Knowledge Sequence. For each section in the Sequence, there is a matching section in the handbooks.
