My son is 9 and he loves these. We read them together. He loves to learn history in this format. I highly recommend Chester Comix. I hope there are more comix like this in the future, perhaps some science also!

My 8 y.o. son is eating these comics up!!! We bought the full set about a month or so ago, and he has already read through half of them!!!! I thought they'd take longer for him to read through, but he has been reading voraciously! My 17 y.o. likes them, too, though he is not reading as voraciously because he has already learned much of the content presented.

I am VERY glad we made this purchase, and would do it again...no regrets.

I will also be sharing this resource with the town library so they can purchase a set, too.

THANKS ...(more)

My 13 YO daughter does not like to read very much, however she loves Chester-Comix. The colorful drawings also help her to retain the information. I would definitely recommend these comics.
Sue Abernethy in NC, Co-op Member
I have had a hard time getting my 11-year old son excited about history, but these books did the trick. Now he loves to pick up these comix books and read about things that happened in history. Even his friends pick up the comix books and read them when they come over to play. I highly recommend Chester-Comix.
Renee Crumley, Co-op Member
A great buy! Chester Comix is such an amazing creation that takes our History to a whole other level. The kids are so interested because of the comic book set, the creative illustrations, and the fantastic writing. It is very well put together and can apply to a broad range of ages. We have the Homeschool All Stars book that you can also get and we found it very enjoyable to learn about what some pretty famous homeschoolers have done for us. The extra bonus was finding out who had homeschooled that we hadn't even realized homeschooled. Yo...(more)

My 10 year old son loves Chester Comix! Before Chester Comix, my son thought learning history was boring. Now, he reads them over and over, and even takes them in the car. My husband, who is a history buff, also enjoys Chester Comix and the artistic presentation. This is a sound history curriculum wrapped up in fun!
Grace M., Co-op Member
Just wanted you to know that we really like Chester Comix. Thanks for all you do.
M.C., Co-op Member
I was so excited when I first saw the email from Homeschool Buyers Co-op for Chester Comix! They sounded like exactly what I needed to engage my two boys in history. I was so right! My kids were engaged immediately and when they started reading them on their own, I knew I had a winner! Plus they retained EVERYTHING they read from the pages of Chester Comix because he uses short text pieces and interesting, little known facts to stir the memory. Thank you so much for creating these engaging history books, Mr. Boyd!
Wendi, Co-op Member
Chester Comix is great! It makes history so interesting for my younger ones they can't wait to turn the pages to find out what happens next! They just absorb the information through the engaging pictures that keep them enthralled in the information on consistent basis! No doubt the best history text book I wish I had when I was a kid!
Renee M., Co-op Member
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.
