    It has it all!

    Posted by Tricia on 28th May 2014

    It covers vocabulary, reading comprehension, thinking deeper, biblical references and has some fun activities. It's challenging but appropriately so, not too much for any child I believe.

    We used this guide and enjoyed it. There is a study of vocabulary in each section, discussion questions, and questions for critical thinking. I especially appreciate the use of the Bible in some of the questions.
