Frequently Asked Questions
You can find a detailed FAQ on this page.
I think this is one of the best Unit Study Approaches I've bought for my children and I to learn together. Erin and her team have beautifully crafted an engaging product that goes deep, goes wide and reaches the hearts of the readers. It's fun, and my children have happily listened and read-along with me on our two-page-a-day journey through China. The OM YouTube playlist is also wonderfully curated, reinforcing what was learnt in for the visual/audio learner. It's beautiful, it's easy to use, and the added bonuses make for fun pretend play (paper dolls) and the flashcards help to reinforce new learnings, as well as expanding their vocabulary with the flashcards.
Thank you, it's been a blessing :)
