I learned about HH thru my public library. i previewed Special Delivery b4 following thru with a subscription order. I ordered for my elderly father. He likes history. It also has puzzels which stimulate his brain.

Wonderful supplement for homeschool

We were working in our social studies lesson and talked about mail delivery, I went and grabbed it off the shelf. Had been waiting for the perfect opportunity to use this! Today was the day!
