Our children enjoyed the comic book format and short history of fellow (and famous) homeschoolers.) It is also a good tool for budding, reluctant readers. They will study a comic book much more willingly than they will stare at a page full of type. I will recommend this book to my fellow home schoolers.

I am well pleased with Chester-Comix. My sixth grader enjoys comic strips and I have found this to be a valuable learning tool. I use them to supplement her history lessons. They are very thorough and the drawings are great. They are comics but I like the way they are accurate and sensible. I highly recommend these books. I am not a fan of comics but give these books a definite thumbs up.
Charity, Co-op Member
The Chester-Comix are very fun to read and informative. The entire family has enjoyed having them.
susan, Co-op Member
My oldest loves comic books and history, so this was a match made in homeschool heaven. We just started to bridge into the Civil War this last week and the Civil War Activity Book is going to be an awesome addition to our study unit. We ordered on a Monday and had our 29 comics and books on Friday of the same week- great ship time! I really appreciate the quality of durability of the books. They are not printed on thin comic paper but the cover is as thick as or thicker then cardstock and the paper inside is heavy weight. I also really apprecia...(more)

Upon receiving the Chester-Comix we began to use them as 'stories' before bed ~ my 5-year-old son loves them. He tells everyone we meet all about the 'Symbols' of America that we read about. My 11-year-old has devoured them and reads about three a day. They are great and fun way to build a foundation base for the subjects involved.
Elta Meinert, Co-op Member
I wanted some diversity in my homeschooling and through research stumbled upon Chester. My 6 and 7 year old boys just started reading comics and so I thought I'll give it a try.
The magazines arrived and I wasn't quite ready to teach with them yet, but the boys devoured them one by one. They even started drawing their own versions of comics. Needless to say they are a great success and when I told them today that next week we are going to start with Chester I got a big YEAH!!
Fabienne, Co-op Member
My boys, ages 10 and 12, love these comics. They pick them up at any given time and read them on their own. Highly recommend!
Jana, Co-op Member
My children and I absolutely LOVE these. My family loves comics anyway, and these have so much value--history, language, government, art, science, life-skills and more. They are also quite funny and the artwork is excellent! I would really recommend these for a struggling reader--they are engaging and fun with so much to be learned on each page--I think the comic style had greatly improved my struggling ones' desire and abilty to read. Worth every penny, especially at the Co-op price!
Mom to Six, Co-op Member
My 6th grade son is a very reluctant reader, but he loves these comix. He can't keep the fun to himself. He just HAS to share all the funny stuff with me. After reading the first sections of the Economics comix he wrote his own comix page about making good buying choices. Thank you for kindling a new light in my son.
History can be FUN!!!!
We will still use our other, more detailed, history books, but these will be our jump starters. We have the whole set.
I am telling others about these. These are a wonderful addition to our curriculum. ...(more)
Wendy, Co-op Member
When the package arrived my preteen and teen dove in. They really enjoyed Chester the Crab. I used these books to suppliment our history curriculum. I put them in the car, beside beds, in the rack in the restroom, etc. They are well worth the expense. KIDS READ THEM.
