Does anyone use this? Is it worth paying $35 for the manual?

I've never heard of it. What is it?

FIAR (Five In A Row) is a story based curriculum, from what I am understanding. You spend 5 days reading the same story to the kids and then doing various activities based on that story.
B4FIAR is for the younger kids. It looks like it's a fun curriculum but I want more infor from people who actually do it.

I've never heard of it either. I do my own curriculum- based off their interests, but often interests develop out of the books we read, so I wanted to check it out.
It looks interesting. It has religious components, which obviously someone could just exclude if they didn't want to use those. Their website has a forum that looks somewhat active, so that might give more info about it. There's also a few people that blog about the activities they do, so it might be worth it to check those out to get a little more info on it, although I can't really seem to find any blogs that are specifically doing the "before FIAR" activities, only the older ones.
Looks interesting...possibly something I'll keep in mind if I decide to homeschool my DD. :) Thanks for sharing, wish I knew something about it to help you out. :)

I spent a small fortune on the ABeka curriculum that I have. I like it and we do use it, but I don't love it. I don't want to buy something else to add to it, if I won't like it.
