    What Parents Are Saying

    "I found it an excellent source of historical study on the life of Laura Ingalls Wilder and beyond. It has both simplicity and depth." (Melissa N.)
    "I really like the ease of the format online, especially with the embedded links and resources. It makes it open and go but even easier to access. For a shorter unit like this, it saves me time to know that it's all there within the unit instead of having to bookmark a separate list elsewhere. I also really appreciate the inclusion of the maps for reference." (Laraleigh M.)
    "I greatly appreciate the approach you take towards the tough stuff in history. It's important to recognize aspects of life (like the minstrel singers) that were common at the time, but which are now recognized as insensitive and wrong.  I think you all, as a company, take an excellent approach to this, explaining things in an age appropriate way, but never glossing over things." (Christine B.)
