Here's what the experts have to say about our programs:

Elemental Science is one of Cathy's Duffy's top picks for homeschool science curriculum.

"One of my Top 102 Homeschool Curriculum picks!...{Elemental Science's Classic Series}'s methodology is so close to what I describe as my ideal in my book." - Read Cathy Duffy's full review of our Classic Series.

This approach of guided learning from real books along with creation of the Logbook or a lapbook offers an interesting way to learn science that allows you to teach all of your children in the elementary grades together. - Read Cathy's full review of our Sassafras Series

Elemental Science is Susan Wise Bauer's top recommendation for classical science curriculum.

"The Elemental Science series loosely follows our recommendations for hands-on experimentation, supplemental outside reading, and narration pages." - See Susan Wise Bauer's full description in the 4th edition of the Well-Trained Mind.

Here's what our customers have to say about us:


Just had to tell you that we (my 11 and 13) have ventured into the Habitats section of Logic Stage Biology, and they are SO Excited! As soon as I explained "diorama" he jumped up and exclaimed that he knew exactly what he was going to do—Philippine jungle! I need clay, mom. Lots of it. Even grumpy 13 perked up. So glad I found ES—I've been name-dropping you every time science comes up! - Shelley

Your books are very age appropriate. Also, I have a special needs child that will learn from your curriculum. - Audrey

I really like the quality of materials you offer as well as the price! I've been searching for these materials online and they're either not available, or twice as much as what you offer them for. - Allison

I love your programs. Very high quality and one of the few secular programs that goes from elementary all the way through high school. The choices for science are especially slim come middle school and high school. - Kristen

My children begged for science and more science today. They are having so much fun traveling the world with Blaine and Tracey in their zoological adventures. My oldest is sneaking the book under the covers at night to get a head start on the rest of us. - Mia
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Sassafras Science. We are only on Ch. 3 of Volume 1 and she's having me read the part about the giraffe licking Tracy over and over and she cracks up every time I read it!- Jennipher
I bought the sassafras twins zoology lap booking guide (and novel) as a supplement to our decent science curriculum. (1st grade). We've all but eliminated our "core" science and are now just so enjoying the twins adventures instead. I have to admit that I was all choked up reading the end of the dessert chapter. There was some challenging moral stuff (in an inspiring way) as Mesneh was challenged to rise up! (Thinking of Mel Gibson in brave heart?!) anyway we can hardly put the book down long enough to make the lap books and the extra activities. (We do them because my daughter loves them too!!) even my 3 yo walks around covering his eyebrows and saying in a sinister voice "I'm the man with no eyebrows!" In short: A+ from our family!! - Sarah
Despite the fact that we finished our science reading for the week, AND despite having a "day off" bc it was his younger brother's birthday. My 1st grader STILL asked if we could do science today! He really enjoys the Sassafras Science Adventures and though we're only on Chapter 7 of book 1 he's already asked about what other books were in the series and if we can read those too! - Coniqua
We just started Sassafras vol 1 as a pick for read aloud, not exactly for a science lesson. Kids are hooked by chapter 2! You're doing for science what Mary Pope Osborne did for history in her Magic Tree House books! My only regret is not reading these sooner to my kids.  I wish Wild Kratts from pbs would give Tracey and Blaine a guest spot. As I read I made lots of correlations. Well done. - Adrienne
I love the readers and the characters. It is just very exciting. - Salena
As an educator, I LOVE the Sassafras Science series!!! I use it for reading, writing, and vocabulary- as well as for the science info- and wish there were even more volumes!!! - Renee
We are using Sassafras science in our homeschool and it has been a great addition that I think other homeschool moms could also readily utilize.- Coleen
We enjoy the Sassafras books! - Theresia
We love Blaine and Tracy! - Heather
My kids have enjoyed learning with the Sassafras twins. We are excited to read the books and learn what the kids are learning along with them. Keep them coming! - Christianne
