What Others are Saying
I love FIAR because it allows me to be the kind of Mom that I’ve always wanted to be – Calm, nurturing, cuddly. AND my kids learn a ton!
Can’t imagine what our life would be like without FIAR. We’ve been Rowing for 14 years! It has given us the BEST family memories, favorite recipes and a wonderful closeness we never would have had with a “school in a box” curriculum. WE LOVE FIAR!
I like FIAR because of the consistency in rereading the books and the discussions that spring from the story. Many projects to accompany each story help to bring a lesson closer to home for us.
I love FIAR for the relaxed homeschooling days we can enjoy while building relationships and loving literature. I love that my kids are four years apart and I can still teach them together! We’re on our second go ’round here and loving it more than the first time!
One of the wonderful benefits of using FIAR, in my opinion, is the pace. It is thorough, but laid back and fun at the same time.
I love snuggling next to my children reading a great piece of literature and seeing their eyes light up with excitement when we do fun activities. So much more fun than boring old textbooks! Thank You!
I love FIAR because it brings us together as a family and allows the children to develop a love of learning. The fact that it teaches critical thinking along the way is a huge benefit!

Jane fell in love with this book a few years ago and she and Carrie Lambert Bozeman have written a unit to share with you!
The Tree Lady: The True Story of How One Tree-Loving Woman Changed a City Forever,
written by H. Joseph Hopkins and illustrated beautifully by Jill McElmurry.
Katherine Olivia Sessions never thought she’d live in a place without trees. After all, Kate grew up among the towering pines and redwoods of Northern California. But after becoming the first woman to graduate from the University of California with a degree in science, she took a job as a teacher far south in the dry desert town of San Diego. Where there were almost no trees.
Kate decided that San Diego needed trees more than anything else. So this trailblazing young woman singlehandedly started a massive movement that transformed the town into the green, garden-filled oasis it is today. Now, more than 100 years after Kate first arrived in San Diego, her gorgeous gardens and parks can be found all over the city.
Part fascinating biography, part inspirational story, this moving picture book about following your dreams, using your talents, and staying strong in the face of adversity is sure to resonate with readers young and old.
