"We are LOVING Burton Reading! We are finished through Unit 21. I'm new to homeschooling and Burton was the first thing we started in May of this year. (My little girl was so excited to start, we couldn't wait until the fall!) It's been amazing to see what she's learned in this short period of time! I especially love looking back at Day 1 where you had her write her name in the box and comparing to where she is now! It's unbelievable the change! (I have a cousin who is a retired second grade teacher in AZ and she told me (my daughter) is writing and reading better than kids she taught in second grade! And (my daughter) is only 4! (We) have both learned a ton and I'm so glad that Burton is the first homeschooling experience we had! (I like things to be laid out and explained, so I really appreciate the videos and lesson plans!) We are looking forward to Burton Reading: Beyond!" - homeschool mom
