... I have to admit that I was hesitant to spend the nearly $30
for only six issues, but now that I've gotten the first issue I
have to say that it is totally worth it! I'm very glad that I went
ahead and subscribed, and I now wish I'd taken advantage of the
two year price ... I've paid three times as much for a unit study
curriculum that isn't as comprehensive as your magazine."

" ... I
believe that I first read about Learning Through History
magazine at The Well-Trained Mind boards. I'm a sucker for a good
magazine for kids! ... Basically, this magazine is like having a
unit study in hand! The articles are divided out by reading level
so that you can be teaching the same topic to all of your children,
no matter their age ... We used our Medieval and Renaissance issues
last semester and there was information in there that wasn't ANYWHERE
else in the books that we were reading!"

can't say enough about this magazine. At the convention (Florida
Parent-Educators Association or FPEA)this year I brought all my
friends over to check it out and they all signed up for subscriptions
and purchased some of the back editions. I am a homeschool mom of
four, ages 4-13. I have a history and science co-op and this magazine
is invaluable. The older children read the articles and everyone
enjoys the projects and the discussion questions. It just really
helps to bring history alive. I will continue to tell everyone I
know about your magazine because I want it to be around for a long
time. Thank you so much!

Through History has been a boon for our homeschooling family.
We have a son whose interest in history runs very deep, and it can
be difficult to find resources that are both age-appropriate and
engaging enough to sustain his interest. LTH is both. As
a parent, I appreciate that each issue provides a comprehensive
look at the chosen time period, and I also love the subscriber area,
with its suggestions for further reading. I often bring the magazine
to the library to find the supplemental books, and have not been
disappointed with the recommendations.
As a side note, I especially like that your magazine is free from
advertisements. Thanks again for providing an exceptional resource.

"I was reading to my girls today
from the Colonial America issue as we wait for Hurricane Ophelia
to pass on by. Anyhow, we are new subscribers and we all love your
magazine. My homeschooled girls (ages 8 and 11) ask me to read aloud
to them at breakfast. I would certainly recommend your magazine
to anybody and everybody. I also love the topics for discussion
side bars- they are a helpful way for us to talk more about what
we read. Keep up the awesome work. Thanks!"

"My family loves learning how everyday people lived in different
times. We enjoy recipes and 'day in the life' articles. I think
your magazine is excellent! I am always bringing up interesting
tidbits in conversation (and the magazine is supposed to be for
"I love the total
package, the illustrations and pictures really appealed to the
teen boys I teach and the info is an excellent springboard to
build my lessons around.... Thanks!!"
"The layout of the magazine makes it interesting for all readers.
It is easy for me as the teacher to use and I don't have to struggle
over lesson plans. Rather than dull reading, the student can
in the shoes" of a historical figure, participate in a virtual
activity or home experiment, and generally get a taste of real
history. This is so much better than when I was in school and
I love it too."
