My goal was to incorporate more handicrafts into our school year and this curriculum does not disappoint. My boys absolutely love what we have done so far.
This book is amazing and wonderful and I get to share it with my grandson!!
I love the variety of ideas, suggestions, poetry and handicrafts that are included in the Signature Collection. The way it is so beautifully done helps me pick it up and actually read what’s inside which is the first step in getting things started!
A precious and beautiful resource!
Good content, shipping took a very long time. I would never again pay $150.00 for such. Again engaging for families-but could google activities for a certain month, to get ideas.
