I like your new website. Some it seems clunky to navigate, like adding things to the cart, and making sure you are logged in First. Otherwise it is smooth sailing. I like it. If you are ever having a giveaway for your apple curriculum, Please let me know, we are to be doing a apple theme right now, with my son's virtual school.

Margaret D. re: Where We Live - Homes
When you say "homes", are you simply referring to different kinds of houses people live in or are you referring to different habitats/homes that people, plants, and animals live in? It would also help if I could get a closer look at one or more of the pages. I cannot read anything on the sample pages. Thanks for your help.

Hi, I just wanted to say that I'm in love with your organization, thoroughness, and all around practical creativity. I downloaded your free units and feel inspired. Are you still selling the cd with 60+ units for $100? (mentioned in comments below) Are there any others bundles you're offering? I'm working with limited funds and can't decide which unit to purchase next. :)
Thanks,

Just bought your great Pet Unit. Thanks for all the ideas! I am having trouble with pages 54-58. They appear garbled, and I wonder what I need to do to fix the pages before I print it.

Hello. I am a homeschooling Mom with a home education website. I like to feature free resources on my site, and was wondering if you would allow me to redistribute your Spiders and Bats unit on my site. (I would be happy to list links to your other learning resources, paid and free. Thanks for your consideration. Here's the link to my site, if you want to take a look: http://unsocialized.net
