Our curriculum is a great choice for families and teachers working through a distance learning school or charter school. Our curriculum covers state and national standards while providing a unique literature-based approach to learning, hands-on activities, and critical and creative thinking skills.
"...the material is fantastic and the concept is so simple, learning through literature. Absolutely love this company and my decision to buy my curriculum from them this year"
" Love that mbtp is teaching a six year old to be a literary critic! We have used used mbtp for 4 years, and I am continually impressed with how and what they teach."
"This is the most comprehensive and vigorously prepared curriculum we have encountered in our 15 years homeschooling."
"It is extremely interactive and fun for us, and is definitely a change of pace from the last curriculum we did which was mostly reading and writing (this became very repetitive for the both of us)."
