Good quality and kid-friendlyMy husband and I were looking for Christian curriculum that was well-made, comprehensive in scope, academically challenging, but fun to study. After shopping around about 20 different curriculum companies, BJU made our top 2 picks. This social studies book offers bite-sized introductions to the whole gamut: geography, communities, maps, states, famous people, etc. As such it doesn't go into any one topic super-thoroughly, but there's plenty of material to last the whole school year. The workbook is a great support for the textbook and includes fun coloring, cut-and-paste crafts, and comprehension worksheets. Each worksheet is labeled for what pages it matches in the textbook, for easy lesson planning.
BJU on the whole offers excellent comprehensive coverage of materials. Their books have a colorful but clean design that is fun but not visually crowded. You don't need 5 different books for one subject area -- everything is together. Even their math books are well-rounded -- incorporating, for instance, basic algebraic concepts into the higher elementary grades in an easy-to-assimilate way. My only regret with BJU is that it is not completely Catholic-friendly in the upper history grades (we are Catholic). But the lower grades are wonderful for any Christian denomination wanting their child to learn top-notch academic material out of a quality textbook.

Good accompanimentThis book went well with the first grade text book. Although the activities were sometimes very small and quick, it still gave him something to do after reading his lesson. I would have liked more fill in the blanks or multiple choice activities, though.

Easy to use & engaging!Mu daughter is five & found that this book is interactive & engaging. She is excited to learn more & asks to do more pages daily. We are enjoying watching her learn with such enthusiasm. We love that it is Christ centered & evident throughout the book as well.
