I've been homeschooling for 9 years now. This is my favorite way to homeschool the younger crowd (4-7, IMO). It is easy, books can be borrowed from the library, typically, and you can make it as easy or challenging as needed for your child. Of course, everyone has diff't learning styles. For those who love books, a literature-based learning system like this is perfect. I have 2 of the volumes of FIAR.
