- Hi! I just want to thank you for the Time Travelers History study. I have been homeschooling 10 years and used everything except a packaged curriculum - and by far this is the most fun we have had! My 9 year old is loving this!!!! I love that all the instruction are there and I don't have to come up I with the ideas on my own. Honestly I don't know if I could come up with all of these good ideas anyway! We have done other lapbooks ... but this is so much MORE. I hope you will be producing more of these and SOON. Thanks for a great way to start off this school year...only what will I come up with next to measure up this this??????? - Melody Pipkin
