- My new Time Travelers American Revolution CD just arrived in the mail, and even though I've only had just a couple of minutes to peruse it, I am already IN LOVE! :) Thank you, thank you, thank you. I LOVE History! In fact, I even have a college degree in History, but I have always become overwhelmed by teaching History to my own kids. We have limped along these last several years and while we have enjoyed reading many great living history books, I have failed at notebooking and lapbooking and anything creative...In discovering your product, I am renewed in the hope that history can be enjoyable and we can actually do something other than read and discuss what we read that will really help cement our understanding and knowledge. It is obvious that much time and energy went into creating this product. Thank you for serving the homeschool community and my family in doing so! May God continue to bless your ministry, as that is precisely what it is! - Angel Grunden
- We greatly appreciate all you have done for us. I just love your studies. While we were stationed in Virginia we did your American Revolution and Civil War, even my then six year old loved it, they still talk about the activities we did, making the Jamestown Fort was there favorite and very often reflect on the things they learned. We had the amazing opportunity just as we wrapped up the American Revolution study to join my husband on a business trip to Philadelphia. He had to speak at a conference for five days and the children and I explored Philadelphia. It was amazing how much they recalled as we walked thru the museums, they were, 6, 8 and 9 at the time. There were even moments when those that worked at the museums committed on there degree of knowledge, proud mama moment, thank you. I just want to thank you for putting so much into these studies and being so accurate. You are a true blessing to us all. - Kim Jones

- Do you want to add some pizzazz to your history studies? Then consider a Time Travelers History Study from Homeschool in the Woods. I reviewed The American Revolution, and what a fabulous resource it is! This study is recommended for grades three through eight, although younger siblings could participate with help. - Heather Jackowitz, Senior Product Reviewer, The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine, LLC
