Our philosophy and what others say about our curriculum

As many of you are probably spending the summer deciding what curriculums to use this coming school year, I thought it may be helpful to provide you with some information on our teaching philosophy as well as some reviews of our products. 

As we have mentioned before, our approach is guided by the Charlotte Mason approach. We love books like Books Children Love, For the Children's Sake and Honey for the Child's Heart. But if you are not familiar with Charlotte Mason here is a link to an article by Rea C. Berg, founder of BFB, on the teaching philosophy of Charlotte Mason and Susan Schaeffer Macaulay. You can read it by click here.

And now to the reviews. First, I want to feature Cathy Duffy's reviews as she reads through more curriculum than anyone I know. She's able to distill the strengths and weaknesses of each product very well. Here are links to her reviews of BFB curriculum and books:
The Genevieve Foster Collection

And now for some reviews from fellow BFB users.

If you would like to share your BFB story, please leave a comment below as we would love to feature it! I hope you find the above reviews helpful in determining your teaching philosophy and style. As always, we would be happy to answer any questions you may have. Feel free to leave them in the comments section below as you never know if another reader has the same question!
