“This is another amazing addition . . . The neat thing is this unit is so easily adaptable that younger and older children can work together with only slight tweaking for an older child to work on his/her level . . . I suggest this study, whether you're looking for something fun and easy to take a break from 'regular' school or you want to add to your other studies for your students, then this is a wonderful way to do so. Inexpensively priced, instantly available, and reusable make it very economical no matter how small or large your family is.”

“What better way to jump back into school after the holidays than with this thought-free, pre-planned study of Australia? . . . Every day my children were excited to learn the next new thing about Australia . . . My Ms. Maddie couldn’t wait every day to hear about the animal of the day and have the coloring sheet for it! . . . My autistic child, Ms. Evie, was fascinated with the didgeridoo . . . Ms. Alana was more into the weather and the culture of the people. She wanted to know all they did and about their religion . . . Ms. Gabby (she is 9) explored a bit deeper into Australia and loved that she had Download N Go™ to get her started and provide links to research further and do more to learn more . . . Isn’t that every mom’s dream? Sparking the love of learning so that your child wants to do it because it’s FUN.”
