“My kids love Here to Help Learning’s Writing Program SO MUCH, so they were very excited to try this. Thankfully, it lived up to their expectations and we really enjoyed it! We flew through the unit in about 3 weeks because we were moving on learning about Children Around the World, but we really didn’t do it justice. This Literature Adventure from Here to Help Learning is fabulous, and I will definitely allot at least 5 weeks the next time we do it. I have never been a big fan of literature units as the girls and I prefer to “just read” and we don’t usually want to slow down and analyze a book, but I highly recommend this literature adventure! It is so well done and added so much to our learning! It’s really great!” Tina Chen
