This turned out to be a ten day study over the course of three weeks (I think!). It was not smart of me to do this around the holidays, but it was one of the best books we’ve ever read together!

We homeschool, so my son completed the book in 3-4 weeks. We worked hard, and it was the only thing he did each day other than math. 🙂
Let’s see . . . that will require my fancy math skills! 😉 Elijah is 11 now in 2013, so in 2009 he was 7.
LOVE the book! We will be studying Mr. Popper’s Penguins next year and this will be fabulous! I went to the Teacher Express store (listed in your reply to someone’s comment) and the Easy Make and Learn Projects ebook was only $1!!!!! Yay!!!
