  1. Sarah Hadley

    A wonderful resource for the UG level for the entire year. Sometimes a bit overwhelming in the DK “fill the page with information” style, but not so much that it detracts from the learning. There are some pictures that may need to be made more modest if you are not used to your children seeing people with less than full coverage clothing on, but nothing a black sharpie or sticker can’t rectify.
