most user friendly I have ever used
Feb 16, 2021
Due to the coronavirus, I ran into troubles getting my product here. I notified this company and they immediately were on top of the issue. They were a huge help and kept me notified whenever the book was getting closer to me. They helped me through the whole time and never complained or showed uninterested with my case. I would highly recommend ordering books from this company. Plus, the layout of their material is the most user friendly I have ever read.

My 12 year old daughter loves to begin her homeschool day doing pages from Word Roots. She can complete them independently and we check them together, learning new words each day. She is expanding her vocabulary quickly and recognizing how to discern the meaning of unfamiliar words by using what she knows about roots. I would recommend this series for budding writers wishing to build their vocabulary!
