- I hope I'm not bothering you, but I felt led to quickly email you and let you know how much we are enjoying your Time Traveler Series. We own all of them, and they are FANTASTIC! Super high quality, creative projects, easy-to-follow instructions and just plain fun. I have kids from ages 10-14, and we have all really enjoyed this series. Thank you so much for your hard work....you are truly gifted. - Crystal Resler
- I will take a moment here to rave about how much we enjoy the activities in Homeschool in the Woods (HSITW) Industrial Revolution through the Great Depression. We have learned so much through these activities. We've discussed people and events that we would not have otherwise studied. Not only that, but I've discovered that many of the meals I enjoyed as a child were actually recipes from the Great Depression!... -Brandy Ferrell, Half-a-Hundred Acre Wood Blog
