I realize this thread is a bit old but my son and I are finishing up America the Beautiful book 1 and I will say I really am enjoying and he is too. Some of the chapters he gets a little impatient with but for the most part he likes it. He asks to do history first every day and we both have enjoyed the readers. I will say that I didn’t notice at first that each chapter starts out with an overview which I find helpful and we’ve also incorporated some YouTube videos as well. It’s a really well done curriculum.
