This is what my copy looks like! I’ve had it for a long time, and never plan to part with it! Those are some of my favorite memories–cuddling with the kids and reading Ping and Lentil!

    What I like about FIAR is the ease of starting the journey of homeschooling it gives. I am new or fairly new to the homeschool community and FIAR was the most recommended and I started with the Before FIAR and enjoyed it.

  58. Kris Bryant

    I have BFIAR and would love to win FIAR, just in time to start with my LO!

  59. I love FIAR. I used it a few years ago and it seems my children remember the units we did with those books better than any textbook we have encountered. This year I will be starting my last 5 year old on FIAR….and doing Beyond FIAR with a few of my older children.

  60. This would be PERFECT for our first hear homeschooling my 3 and 5 year olds!!

  61. BlessedCP

    I would love to win this for a few reasons:
    1. I used to won 3 volumes and 90% of the books and sold them when my youngest was 7. Now I have a daughter I would love to use these with and wish I wouldn’t have sold mine.
    2. Our homeschool co-op is doing FIAR with our Pre K-K class and I would love to have a copy to go along throughout the year.
    3. I have little grandchildren who can use this in a few years.
    4. I LOVE FIAR!! :-)

  62. Alicia

    I just had someone show me five in a row and I think it would be the perfect curriculum for my daughter. Thank you for this offer.

  63. Aymee Tolander

    I would like to use this curriculum with my soon to be 4 year old, we have heard good things about it!
