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!
