    excellent book

    This is an excellent book. My husband and I read many passages for my son. He likes them very much. They enrich his mind tremendously. My son's school somehow does not provide this much content. We would have missed a lot fine literature, history, and geography without this book. Thanks to the authors. I do see the math part is too easy for second graders nowadays. For practice, we use Beestar math and ELA (a wonderful web site beestar.org). Its free weekly exercises are about right and very helpful. Overall, this is an outstanding book loaded with fine content. I highly recommend it.

    I purchased the nook version of this book.  It contains so many

    I purchased the nook version of this book.  It contains so many typos.  I mean so many typos.  The sheet music for Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star on page 192 and 193 is even wrong.  It says to play CC GG CC A  when the correct way to play it  si CC GG AA G.  I suspect the actual book probably doesn't have as many typos.  I won't be buying the third grade version.

    Has a lot of useful supplements for homeschooling or even to add to what your child is learning in school. Ideas for books from the library as well.

    more from this reviewer

    Great book!

    We found a lot of useful tips from this book. We got to know what Mark studies at school is enough or not. It is really a good helper for parents. Mark also does math and reading in Beestar, so we know Beestar has provided enough exercise for a Second Grader. We are going to register GTM for him, because this book tells that it is also important to develop his intelligence by doing GTM practice.

    Excellent supplement

    I was looking for a book to supplement what my child was learning or not learning at school, and this book has been perfect. We read from it every night, plus we use it as a reference when we have questions or problems with homework. I would recommend this series for any parent who is trying to help their children become more successful in school.
