  1. Just thought I'd share my free Geography & Cultures Textbook: https://guesthollow.com/guest-hollows-geography-cultures-online-textbook/ I just finished updating it after our new website went live. 🙂 So far the feedback has been really great! Now I'm off to browse the boards. I haven't done that in ages and miss all the discussion! ❤️
  2. Chiming in here quickly. This is on the website: Question: Aren't some of the books too easy for high schoolers? Answer: The spine text A Patriot's History of the United States is a book that is used in some colleges. It is NOT a lower-level book. Using just the spine book, the scheduled videos, and the linked activities covers quite a bit of history. The scheduled books are "frosting on the cake" that help bring topics alive in a way that is engaging and memorable. I do schedule in quite a few graphic novels and some easier fare (amidst some more difficult titles written for adults)
  3. The Kindle version of The Science of Seasons is free until Friday: https://amzn.to/2NxGk8s I wrote an illustrated it. ?
  4. Good idea to separate it into a separate activity book...I will consider that for the future. :-) (And I love reading all the great feedback from the other posters!! Totally made my day.)
  5. Oooh, no, I haven't seen that....checking it out now. Thank you so much for the recommendation!
  6. I didn't see my chemistry program listed, so I'm chiming in. ;-) Forgive me if I missed it! http://www.guesthollow.com/homeschool/science/chemistry_highschool/chemistry_home.html
  7. Now I'm curious.... ;-) and thanks again for the puffy heart love, lol. :001_wub:
  8. Thanks for the compliment!! :-) I think I'm blushing as no one has ever used the word rapture when talking about my curricula, lol. I'm so glad you liked the book!! I'm looking forward to using my new A & P with my son this year. I'm happy to see you are excited about the updated resources, too! Thanks again - you totally made my day. :001_wub:
  9. I just finished updating another curriculum on my website. It's not really an update. It's actually more of a totally new creation: http://www.guesthollow.com/homeschool/science/anatomy_little_otters/littleotters_anatomy.html It's a gentle human body and health topics curriculum for preschoolers through about 2nd grade. The topics follow my jr. anatomy curriculum (and high school level, too) for multi-age teaching. You can also mix-and-match books from different levels to get the right fit. I've scheduled in lots of books (many that were my own children's favorites), as well a
  10. 1. Write books 2. Illustrate books 3. Create curricula 4. Move out of CA
  11. Oh! sorry for being dense. :-) I get what you mean. No, I haven't published any new books. It takes me about 3-4 months to create one set (two books) and I have to justify all that time spent on them. I WILL make more, but it might have to be during my "hobby" time until they take off, if they ever do, and I can justify doing that sort of thing full-time. It's what I really want to do. I want to make a whole slew of books and build stuff around them. I think the current set I made is unique in that it's not just tied to one thing. The main idea is about seasons, but I tied in lots of
  12. It's designed to be started at any time, in any type of weather / climate. There is an optional 6 week plants genetics kit, but that is scheduled in starting in week 27. That particular project is set up so that it can be started at ANY time and is not tied to the daily schedule. It's an indoor project, too, so it's not dependent on the weather. The nature journaling book I recommend can also be used at any time, and is not scheduled in. It's just to be used on an "as desired" basis at any point in the curriculum. Please let me know if you have any more questions! :-)
  13. It's tomato season!

  14. ((hugs)) Thinking about you and sorry you are dealing with that. It's can be so crushing, but you are not alone!! I think you are very well-loved here on these forums. :grouphug:
  15. My daughter was reading when she was 2 years old. When it was time for K, I thought she would be bored. Plus, I really loved having her with me and doing things with her. Homeschooling was still fairly new back when she was small. One day I was at the library (a frequent stop, lol) and I was thrilled to find info about it. After reading a couple of books (one of them was Homeschooling for Excellence by the Colfaxes) I knew it's what I wanted to do. I never looked back.
