We homeschool and absolutely love Brainquest books! They are very colorful and will keep your child attention. They also cover a wide range of subjects! The book includes stickers, achievement reward sheets, answer sheets in the back for parents, and a brainbox on the bottom of every page explaining the topic the kids are learning! I highly recommend these!!!!.
It has a lot of good content for students to hone up on their skills. I wouldn’t say it is a complete curriculum resource because it jumps around too much and doesn’t focus enough on teaching certain concepts.
The social studies section has some good geography maps, etc. but is rather lacking in terms of U. S. History, the foundations of U. S. government which are important topics for 5th grade. Nonetheless, it’s a helpful resource.
Based on the real-life adventures of Laura Ingalls Wilder, Little House on the Prairie is the third book in the award-winning Little House series, which has captivated generations of readers. This edition features the classic black-and-white artwork from Garth Williams.
This middle grade novel is an excellent choice for tween readers in grades 5 to 6, especially during homeschooling. It’s a fun way to keep your child entertained and engaged while not in the classroom.
Laura Ingalls and her family are heading to Kansas! Leaving behind their home in the Big Woods of Wisconsin, they travel by covered wagon until they find the perfect spot to build a little house on the prairie.
Laura and her sister Mary love exploring the rolling hills around their new home, but the family must soon get to work, farming and hunting and gathering food for themselves and for their livestock. Just when the Ingalls family starts to settle into their new home, they find themselves caught in the middle of a conflict.
Will they have to move again? The nine books in the timeless Little House series tell the story of Laura’s real childhood as an American pioneer, and are cherished by readers of all generations. They offer a unique glimpse into life on the American frontier, and tell the heartwarming, unforgettable story of a loving family.
Purchased multiple copies for a 3rd & 4th grade literature project for one of my teachers. It was great to be able to purchase several copies at a great price! The quick turn-around time was much appreciated too.
All of Laura Ingalls Wilder books are classics. I read them in grade school and loved them, now I have reread them as a senior citizen and remembered how I enjoyed every page of every book. It is certainly a travel in time and many history lessens to soak up.
The characters come across as real people and you feel the struggles, joys and heartaches they go threw. I am now following up on personal stories of Laura Ingalls Wilder and her daughter Rose Wilder Lane.
I have found some surprising and interesting facts about both of them. I will soon have all their books and I will save all of them to pass on to my granddaughter.

I bought this to help my son refresh his memory from certain mathematical problems. He recently had a break down and unfortunately his memory has been affected. This book covers all aspects of the maths he needs to recover.
I’m glad I bought this book. I will probably go back and buy a lower grade as some of the questions are infact still out of gis grasp. He will have to start lower down and work his way back up. It certainly takes away all the effort on my part having to write down different maths every day for him.
Love this curriculum. The pre/post test is an important tool for me to determine as an educator for making groups, delivering content and tracking growth. The included word problems help to deliver instruction that is on topic and allows the opportunity to practice a difficult skill for students.
Topics are grade level appropriate and cover a little bit of 4-6th grades as well to cover the grade spans.

My 5th grader is enjoying the articles. I like how there are several that are in the same theme together. In conversation last night, she volunteered some information she had learned from the article she had read that day! I’d say that’s success.
I also like the kinds of comprehension questions that are asked for each article.
I like this book, because this book follows cas school curriculum. Next, it helps students to understand materials well. The only thing I dont like it is the answer keys. Some answer keys are answer is vary It should give some impossible answer instead of answers are vary.
Please consider this point for your future books. Thanks.

My daughters are now 6 & 8, and they actually ask when we’ll be reading from this book. There are some topics I’ve flipped past because it’s too much for their age right now, but I appreciate the way it allows for open conversation & building trust in talking about anything and everything with me.
The book has information that is easy to understand for my not quite puberty aged daughter. It was a great starting point for many topics and lead to more openess and conversations about puberty. Definitely recommend!.
A New York Times bestseller! Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls is a children’s book packed with 100 bedtime stories about the lives of extraordinary women from the past and the present, illustrated by 60 female and non-binary artists from all over the world.
Created out of the most successful publishing project in crowdfunding, this must-have volume brings readers on an empowering journey, introducing them to the real-life adventures of trailblazing women from Elizabeth I to Malala Yousafzai.
The unique narrative style of Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls transforms each biography into a fairytale, filling readers with wonder and a burning curiosity to know more about heroes such as: Ada Lovelace, Mathematician – Amelia Earhart, Aviator – Frida Kahlo, Painter – Malala Yousafzai, Activist – Jane Goodall, Primatologist – Julia Child, Chef – Marie Curie, Scientist – Maya Angelou, Writer – Michelle Obama, Lawyer and First Lady – Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court Justice – Each woman’s story is also accompanied by a full-page, full-color portrait that captures her rebel spirit.
This hardcover edition, with an extra-smooth matte scuff-free lamination, 100lbs paper, a satin ribbon bookmark, and extraordinary print quality, is the perfect gift for any young reader and begs to be read again and again.
This is a wonderful book I would have wanted to have while growing up. My six year old daughter loves this book. Every time we finish a story she wants to know more (we have already books on several of these amazing women).
Every day she runs to get the book when she returns from school. It’s a great resource for parents who would like to raise future empowered women. Through each story a mother can pass on to their daughters values of justice, equality, hard work, self trust, self worth and how capable we all are to follow our dreams and be unique.
However there is one constructive criticism I would like to make regarding one of the stories. I was quite surprised to find Eva Perón as a role model and making it in a short list like this and frankly feel very uncomfortable with the way she is portraid in the book.
I was born and raised in Venezuela and understand quite well Latin American politics. Eva Perón should not be in that book as her legacy of populism is one that has been repeated in other countries and that has had terrible consequences in Latin Amrica in the past decades.
She was undoubtedly powerful but not necessarily good. Why not be safe and choose someone more influential and stronger in spirit and kindness like Mother Theresa? Finding Eva Perón or the choice of a couple of pirates instead of valuable women was disconcerting and made me doubt of the accuracy in the portrayal of some of the women listed.
Also as mentioned in the another review the title could be re-thought as to make it easily accessible to boys as well. Closing in a positive note I was very pleased to see also many Italian women in the list having lived there for 5 years and coming from a half Italian family.
I consider this a beautifully diverse list of inspiring women that lived before us or are still alive leading us through their courage in other parts of the world and helping us become better in what ever our field and life path is.
Good job to the authors! Thinking to buy 10 copies to give to my nieces and close friends (However will do so with certain notes of caution).
Hi, I was so happy and excited to have found a book with the message I had in my heart for so long, and in a way that could be passed along to my little nieces and nephews! That they could be and like anything and everything, no matter their gender.
As soon as I was able, I ordered copies for all of them, and for myself 🙂 I started reading it as soon as I received mine and was very happy with my purchase until I reached the story of the little boy, Cody (p46 of the French edition).
The story of Cody starts with something along the lines of “Cody is a boy but he likes pink and sparkly shoes so he is clearly really a girl and would like to be treated as such”. This sentence is so wrong on so many levels, I felt sad and betrayed reading it.
So if you fit a certain stereotype of what girls are supposed to like, you are a girl? And then, how should “be treated as a girl” be interpreted? This story really struck me as completely opposite to the message I am trying to spread, as I thought the authors did with this book, which is that you should never be boxed in or treated a certain way because of your gender.
You’re not less of a girl because you like maths, or lifting weights, and you’re not less of a boy because you like pink, and neither should be treated any different because of their gender. I would very much like to get an explanation from the authors as to how this could ever be conceived as an accurate message for little girls and boys everywhere, and not the total opposite of what the rest of the books says? I think I will wait for a satisfactory answer to this before ordering the 2nd volume, since I don’t want to have to tear out another story as I had to do before gifting this volume.

– After the release of Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls, the passionate community of supporters, spanning 70+ countries, wrote in to suggest the Rebel Girls who inspired them.

I’ve read one story a day to my third grade class since I received my books. We talk about the struggle the person over came and how that’s made a difference. Here is an essay one of my students wrote.
In my opinion, I think I would rather meet Benjamin Franklin than George Washington. One reason I think that is because, I could invent stuff with him. For example, we could invent awesome things like the Franklin stove, bifocals,swim fins and the lightning rod.
Also, I could’ve helped write the Declaration of Independence because someday I would like to become a rebel and change the world. Another reason is because, without Benjamin Franklin there would not be a country called the United States of America.
So it would be awesome to meet someone who changed the world because he asked the French king to help fight the Revolutionary war and he agreed. I don’t think he would agree if someone else asked him.
Lastly, I can make more newspapers with him, because I would love to write something that everyone can see. For these reasons, that is why I think I would rather meet Benjamin Franklin.
This makes a really nice gift for young girls. A nicely bound quality hardcover book that can be passed down. Each woman is featured with a one page story and a beautiful illustrated portrait from a variety of female artists throughout the world.
This book features a variety of women and girls of different backgrounds, and we have found it best to read along with our daughter to add our own commentary or to use it as a starting point to research more about some of the women we want to learn more about.
I purchased this book for my 4. 5 year old niece and when it arrived, it exceeded my expectations. The book is very good quality – sturdy, thick pages, and gorgeous illustrations. The women chosen are all women with inspiring lives – though the stories are short (literally 1 page long) for a young child it’s actually works out perfectly and gives you enough details to make them want to learn more about the person.
I think my niece, and any other bookworm kid, will love it. #sweepstakes.
Read the book that inspired the Choose Kind movement, a major motion picture, and the critically acclaimed graphic novel White Bird. I won’t describe what I look like. Whatever you’re thinking, it’s probably worse.
August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid — but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face.
Beginning from Auggie’s point of view and expanding to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others, the perspectives converge to form a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.
In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. Palacio has called her debut novel “a meditation on kindness”. Indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship.
Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out. – Publisher.

The beloved, Newbery Medal–winning classic is now in paperback! With more than a million copies sold, The Girl Who Drank the Moon is a must-read for fans of timeless fantasy fables. And coming in March 2022, an immersive new fantasy from Kelly Barnhill, The Ogress and the Orphans! Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest.
They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the Forest, Xan, is kind. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon. Xan rescues the children and delivers them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey.
One year, Xan accidentally feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, filling the ordinary child with extraordinary magic. Xan decides she must raise this girl, whom she calls Luna, as her own. As Luna’s thirteenth birthday approaches, her magic begins to emerge—with dangerous consequences.
Meanwhile, a young man from the Protectorate is determined to free his people by killing the witch. Deadly birds with uncertain intentions flock nearby. A volcano, quiet for centuries, rumbles just beneath the earth’s surface.
And the woman with the Tiger’s heart is on the prowl.
I am Azrin, a girl who likes Astronomy, stars, the moon, and outer space. The book is very interesting yet a bit boring, though I still love it! I haven’t finished reading yet but the book is either way very amazing.
It has all of my interests and is very entertaining. I’m only 9 but can still read non-picture books. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes stars, space, and frightening adventure.
As an avid audiobook listener, I was thrilled to have a book different than my norm. The narrator does a good job with voices and tone, however the story drags in points, then gets interesting, and then seems like it’s getting dragged out and could have ended in several different places.
Perhaps if you read the words, and don’t listen via audiobook your experience would be different. It’s not a bad book, just not one I would gift or excitedly tell people about.
I really enjoyed the story of this book, but it was sluggish at times. Trying to understand the rantings and magical talents of a madwoman, the humane actions of a young man who questions age-old traditions, the strange characters who are attached to a misunderstood witch, and the future of a young woman who has no idea of the powers that will shape her future often makes it difficult to follow the story line.
But the story is good, worth reading, and satisfying at the conclusion. As a librarian of 10-12-year-olds, I do warn them that the intricate language and the jumping back and forth from scene to scene is better for higher-level readers.

She’s happy, Mom’s happy, Her grades will improve surely; HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!!.
My daughter took a long time starting to read these. She says she enjoys them, but to me, it didn’t seem that they kept her attention the way her rescue princess books did. But that might just be because I bought them for her rather than her ‘super cool auntie’.
I have not read them myself yet, but they seemed cute to me.

Somethings were out of context due to the setting and when it was written, but overall an excellent read!.

First lesson: Understanding Absolute Value. “The absolute value of a number is a number that is the same distance from zero on a number line as the given number, but on the opposite side of zero. -8 and 8 are absolute value because they are the same distance from zero on opposite sides of the number line.
