Overly Conservative in PresentationI do not presentations of some, such as Jimmy Carter. The text says he professed to be a born-again Christian, but he didn't...(forgot the exact info.). I think it is inappropriate to judge his Christianity by an action and I think it is harmful to students to categorize people so generally. It leads to an "us" and "them" type mentality which does not allow for thought before passing judgement. I feel that it unhealthy in an educational environment.
Expensive in softcover format

5th grade Heritage StudiesOverall I like this. I do wish the book gave US history from Columbus to the present day because I find many students do not "remember" the earlier history and I think it is important for them to see God's hand in the founding and growth of our nation. I think it's also important for them to see how America has walked away from God and needs to go back to Him.

Great Text!I love the era covered in Edition 3. I am not looking forward to Edition 4 as I believe that 5th graders need to move on from the 1800s. I also do not appreciate the current social issues brought up at the end of the book in Edition 4. I'm keeping 3 as long as possible!
