  • Currently, we’re using Language Lessons for the Well Trained Mind. It’s working well so far for the level my son’s at, but the Grammar Rules books sounds like a great one for the next level he will be going into.

  • I used The Princeton Review’s Grammar Smart for my older son, but would love to give this a try for my younger children. Thanks for the chance!
