List of Resources & Buying Information
In this program many of this resources can be found in libraries or even from used sources in great condition. The key resource to this program is the series by Hakim, “A History of Us.” This set is ten volumes and if purchased brand new and all at one time, can be too much for some families. Many families purchase them one at a time as they need them or get them frim the library one at a time as they need them. Painless American Government is another resource that the program centers, as that is the springboard for your student’s government study.
The other resources after those are more optional. They fill out, highlight and further explore what Hakim’s books do not cover in as much detail. The books on both the world wars are encouraged to be had as they will really add to what Hakim does in her volumes. All books listed below are scheduled in the guide you would get from the set. Many of these books, if not all, can be gotten from local libraries which is a great way to save money. Below you will find the buying information for those books scheduled in our guide.
