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)

My 9 year old is dyslexic. These are perfect for a reluctant reader. He actually asks to read the next lesson. He laughs at the jokes and remembers what he has read. I would not use it alone. We added it to our Evan Moore History Pocket series between the 2 and some outside sources I feel he is getting a solid history education. The comic book pictures give a nice visual to the time period being studied another added benefit. We plan on using them over 3rd grade - 5th grade and pass them down to the younger siblings.

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!

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
Our son loved Chester Comix! It brings history to life and helps him remember historical facts since he is a visual learner. He rereads them and keeps them in his room. I wish there were more for other subjects as well.

I have 3 boys, one of which is a reluctant reader. I bought these mainly for him, and he loves them! He gets so engaged and he tells me all kinds of things about history that he learns. My other 2 boys thoroughly enjoy them as well. I have never before seen a set of history comic books. Thank you for a great and captivating product!

We're really enjoying the Chester Comix series (& the 'Homeschool Allstars' book). My 7 year old sits and reads them by himself and sometimes asks me questions about history based on what he read. Even my 5 yr. old enjoys having me sit and read them to him, though I have to explain some things as we go - yes, he wants me to explain history things to him!!! It's so great. There's also a portion of a timeline at the top of every page, so I will use that to put together a master timeline in our school area.

Chester-Comix are a wonderful way to study history, but especially for children on the autism spectrum. My son loved the comic strip approach and being very visual was real plus. In a fun and entertaining way Chester-comix gets right to the important facts to know while telling the story of history. As a mom of a child with special needs, it was the best way possible to introduce American History!

The Chester Comicx books have arrived to our house, but haven't been used yet. Or so I thought. Then, I saw that the stack is not as neat as I left it. The kids (9,7) got into it and were reading the booklets on their own. When asked, "How do you like Chester?" DS9 said, "He s so funny, but I'm really learning things."

Now it is on the free reading list, and I'm planning to use them as pre-reading materials for them. As they read, we talk about it; like after reading about WW II. They really did bad things in the war. Why?

This is my first year homeschooling. When we began the year, my 9 year old was a very reluctant reader. Chester-Comix have been a delightful tool to (1) engage my son in reading and (2) launch our exploration into U.S. History. We enjoy reading them aloud together, finding the "jokes," and discussing what we've read. The Teacher's Guides offer multi-disciplinary activities that coordinate with the subject matter -- art, math, language, etc, as well as multiple choice review quizzes. I think they are a perfect curriculum supplement for kids ...(more)
