Here is what a reader had to say:

“I just received this in the mail today and I went through it and was very pleased. I am excited to get started on this with my kids. It will not only teach them, but will teach me some stuff that I have not thought of before. Homemaking skills is not taught to every child. My mom did not teach me stuff growing up and this book will help me to glean on the things I have learned over the years and on the things that I did not really know of. Thankful for books like this!”
