Love the Bible Heroes
Review by Cherry
My 5year old already knows most of the concepts in this book but I still opted to get her this book because of the Bible teachings. We love the Bible Heroes. Short but impactful and leads to my kid asking a lot of questions and having a rich discussion with her.
Great introduction to school
Review by Laura
This is a fantastic introduction to school for a young child. The lessons are short & there is just a little table work – perfect for young learners. I have several other preschool curriculums that I love but they are too hard for me to implement since I have 4 young kids. This is a great fit for our family.
Great for preschoolers
Review by Amy
This is great for a 3-4 year old that wants to do school. They will have fun learning colors, shapes and other things. Love how the bible is taught in everything.
Simple and Gentle Preschool
Review by Dawn
This program is set up in a simple, easy to use format. I loved that it did not attempt full school days but instead was three short sessions per week for 36 weeks. I also really liked the Biblical heroes focus and how they incorporated God's word throughout the curriculum.
*I received a free copy of this product in exchange for my honest review.*
Great Beginner Book for Preschool
Review by Mom of 6
I have 3 older children who are currently homeschooling (K, 2nd, and 4th grades). My preschool-age son is always asking to "do school" with his siblings, so I decided this would be a good starter curriculum for him. He LOVES it! He just recently turned 4 years old and I'd say that you could easily start this with an advanced 2-year old or a 3-year-old. The curriculum was fairly easy for him at this point, however, it has been great to build his confidence and excitement for school work.

It goes over preschool basics like colors, shapes, matching, shadows, etc., while also incorporating Bible stories and verses. The pictures are colorful and inviting. My son has had so much fun with this, he is always begging to do more and more pages each day.

I'm really pleased with this curriculum and will definitely be using it with his younger brother in a few years.
Perfect for littler learners!
Review by Laurel
I was blessed to be able to check this product out and I am pleased to say that it is exactly what I would want for an early Preschool curriculum. I would say this is appropriate for precocious 3 year olds or most 4 year olds. It might be a little basic for some 4's, but it's a very gentle approach, and one of my kiddos would have thrived with it at that age. As it is, my 3 year old is going to love being "part of school" while using this not-super-structured but intentional approach to engaging littles. Covering things like colors, names, shapes, animals, print exposure and more, it is a very gentle and easy approach. I think it will be perfect for helping my youngest be "doing school" while big brother and sister are studying.
Gentle for little ones
Review by Love2BeMom
Do you have a little one at home who wants to do “schoolwork” like big brother/sister? Do you slowly but gently want to introduce more formal learning to your little one? Are you looking for a course that is play-based with hands-on activities? Do you want something that is open and go with little or no prep needed to complete lessons? This course is your answer!
Stepping Stones has 3 lessons per week for 36 weeks. It focuses on the following milestones: colors and sorting, cutting and making healthy food choices, shapes and first letter of students name, follow directions and hop on one foot, opposites and emotions.
I love how God’s Word and truth is in every lesson! I highly recommend this!

Engaging, gentle,and wonderful
Review by Yulia
I use stepping stones with my 3.5 yo, and she absolutely loves it. It is a gentle approach as other masterbooks' curriculum. My daughter retains information and is able to pay attention. The lessons are short, engaging and to the point. She gets so excited even about memorizing verses which was not the same with her older brother. I caught her repeating a verse during her down time (it melted my heart).

I was hesitating to do any workbook with her so early, but I've noticed her hunger to learn when her big brother is homeschooling :), so I've decided to try something formal with her. She runs to do "her school", and school is a positive experience for her. She is even willing to sacrifice cartoons to do school with me. I am sure it is a rare for kids especially her age lol.

I am grateful to the author for yet another great curriculum. I would say it is perfect for the age range: not overwhelming, developmentally appropriate, fun and teaches them Bible as well in small enough bits so they can retain the information. I also think it helps parents to have this special positive time with their preschoolers which is great for both parties :)
