- Can purchase the books separately or in a package.
- BFB has brought back classic books by great authors that were going out of print.
What people don’t like-
- BFB is less structured than other curriculums.
The website has a recommended sequence for study based on grade level. http://bfbooks.com/Info-FAQ/Get-Started
To save money, purchase the study guides separately and then find the books through the library or thrift stores.
For a more structured curriculum, try Winter Promise, which is also Charlotte Mason based. http://winterpromise.com/

What Friends Are Saying About Beautiful Feet Books...
I loved using Beautiful Feet's Character curriculum a few years ago. So far it is the best thing, the most loved thing, the most beneficial thing I've ever done. I'm planning on using it again this fall. I can not praise it enough! - Amanda
Beautiful Feet books also have really good ancient history book sets. We did Ancient History last year and our favorites are: Herodotus and the road to history, Archimedes (by Bendick), God King, The Story of the Greeks by Guerber (my teen just finished that one and I liked it as well but it might be too long for little ones). I also liked the Bronze Bow but my kids have not heard it yet. We had a hard time getting into The Cat of Bubastes but I think listening to an audio would have been perfect. -Billie
