  1. Way more than exoected 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Mar 2018

    For the price, I was expecting small workbooks with limited work on each page. I was very pleased to see that it looks like it’s going to be great for helping my son who will be in first grade next year. I would like to find some text books to go with them but I knew they didn’t include that before I bought them. I am very pleased with the workbooks!
