- I love the suggested books per grade level. I'm using it as a guide to gauge the kid's school this year. For instance for my eldest (Calypso), it suggested she read the Lord of the Rings series. Well, she's on book 2 already! Right on!
- It even includes classically based math books, which I have been on the search for. One for instance by Harold Jacobs.
Hope this post give you some ideas and a couple of new places to visit.
