    I just re-read the whole CORE Knowledge Series this week. I have to say, I'm torn by these...bit of a love/hate relationship I suppose. How awesome that Hirsch takes the basics and breaks them down into digestible bits of information in a meaningful sequence...always building on what kids have learned already. At the same time, how scary that educators may pick these up and think that truly this is all a first-grader, second-grader, etc. needs to know. Knowledge is infinite and true love of lear I just re-read the whole CORE Knowledge Series this week. I have to say, I'm torn by these...bit of a love/hate relationship I suppose.

At the same time, how scary that educators may pick these up and think that truly this is all a first-grader, second-grader, etc. needs to know. Knowledge is infinite and true love of learning can never be developed by focusing on a single textbook no matter how many subjects it covers. I know Hirsch didn't intend for this to be all that kids are taught, and yet that always feels a little suggested to me as I read them. A good resource that has no hope of ever replacing great literature.

    This is essentially the equivalent of a Readers Digest Condensed Book of an entire grade's textbook. Other than purposely using it as supplement at home by setting time aside to read it it with your child, I don't really see an application for this style of book. The material is presented very dryly and in this large book seems overwhelming so no child would read it alone.

    We started homeschooling this year and this series is a very good backbone for making your own curriculum. I checked this out at the library then later purchased it for use at home.
