If you were to ask me what the one most important part of our homeschool day would be, I would not hesitate to respond with something along the line of books, our reading. We are absolutely a book and story loving family and Progeny Press ~ http://www.ProgenyPress.com) is one of the golden names for study guides. This year we have been blessed with the opportunity to review The Bears on Hemlock Mountain E-Guide (Grades 1-3) for use with my third grade daughter. My daughter already has gotten into reading other novels and short books by Alice Dagliesh and has started to read The Bears on Hemlock Mountain.
