What our customers have to say
“This is the first time we have used Beautiful
Feet and my daughter and I are thoroughly enjoying the lessons!! It's
been fun, interesting and I love how you have incorporated character building
in the lessons. Thank you so much for a great history curriculum based on
“I love your approach to teaching... Our
children have a love of learning and a love of history because of the
literature you have recommend. Thank you
for all you do to light the fire for learning!!!”
“I have just recently discovered your History
and Geography program and I am thrilled. Thank you for serving the Lord
in such a mighty way to help our children to grow and learn in the Lord!”

company. You not only provide wonderful books but treat customers very
well. I appreciate you!”
“I just wanted to write you
a quick note and tell you how much we are enjoying the Beautiful Feet
books. We loved all of the books.
This year we are loving the U.S. and World History. We are so
enjoying the books. Thank you for your
great book choices. We are really happy with all that we are
readying and enjoying. I would not have felt as good about last
year had it not been for Beautiful Feet. Thank you again.”—Tammy, CA
“I have loved using
Beautiful Feet curriculum through the years.”
“We used your Ancient History study this past
year and LOVED it! I am learning things as a home school mother that I never
learned in public school. I am getting my second education through your
study guides. Keep up the great work. Our family has truly benefited from your
“I want to let you know I have searched for
a history program for 3 years and have tried a few in the process and was
so frustrated with what was out there until I came across BFBOOKs in the Cathy
Duffy book. It's amazing how my child
loves history now and actually doesn't want to stop reading when that days
lesson is suppose to end. Even though it
is primary level I myself am learning a lot also. Thank you for
publishing this wonderful program.”
“You have GREAT programs.
We just finished Early American History Intermediate. My 4th grade son and 6th
grade daughter loved it. Thank you so
“I have ordered many of your sets and love your
books and guides. I love the living book way of teaching. Just to
let you know, I used the Early American History for Primary grade package
with my first and third grade girls and they learned so much more than with the
traditional history textbook approach. They actually remember the
information! Thank you for this wonderful material.”
“One of the great bonuses of parenting is that you get to introduce books to your own kids that wowed you when you were a kid yourself. Sometimes your children love the books as much as you did; sometimes they don't. But in either case, you get to revisit with old friends and see how much you and they have changed and retained over the years. Some of my best book friends when I was a kid were the wonderful illustrated histories of Genevieve Foster, and the one I loved most was Augustus Caesar's World. I recently introduced it (and a few others: George Washington's World, Abraham Lincoln's World, The World of Captain John Smith, World of Columbus's and Sons) to my [son], and he's discovering the magic in them I did so many years ago. There are three qualities to Augustus Caesar's World that make it so entertaining and educating. The first is that it's incredibly well written. Foster has the gift of breathing life into historical accounts. In reading about Cicero's execution or the life of Siddhartha, for example, one experiences all the dreadful waste of the one and the liberating wonder of the other. Second, the book is wonderfully illustrated by Foster herself. The illustrations are themselves instructive: along with individual scenarios, she provides time-lines, illustrated most fetchingly, that conveniently encapsulate events and persons. Finally, Foster's histories are really world histories. In Augustus Caesar's World, she focuses on the events leading up to the end of the Roman Republic and the establishment of the Empire (roughly, 44BC to 14AD). But she doesn't limit herself to Roman history; she also examines events taking place across the world during the time frame in which she's working: the druids in Gaul, Hindus in India, Confucius in China, Mayans in the Americas, and so on. She even includes intellectual history: the origins of Christianity and Buddhism, the Upanishadic culture of the Hindus, etc. Her aim is to give the reader a wide angle of vision, and she succeeds wonderfully. I'm grateful that Foster's histories are being republished. They don't patronize kids by resorting to silly gimmicks that supposedly make learning more palatable (or at least more marketable). Instead, they make history fascinating the old fashioned way: by showing that it's a great story in its own right. They're a great discovery for my son, and a great rediscovery for me.”

“This is the first year we have used Beautiful Feet and the first year that we have remembered any of our history lessons!”
"LOVE this curriculum!"
—L. Bates, FL
"I used your Ancient History, Medieval History and U.S. and World History courses for my son who homeschooled for 6-9th grade and daughter who homeschooled for 6-8th. They are now back in public high school, attending a supposedly a very academically challenging school. Not only have they aced their World History course (they would only allow the U.S. and World History to count as either US or World History in their transcripts) but on the California standardized test for History my son got 100% of the questions correct in 3 out of 4 sections. In the 4th section, he told me "Mom, I know I missed 2 and I know which ones. They were wrong. They were looking for the accepted answer which is incorrect if they really knew their history". What can I say? Your product is phenomenal. Your selection of quality literature and the vocabulary they garnered from it probably explains why they scored in the 98th percentile of the PSAT. Thank you. I am now starting my Kindergardener and 2nd grader on your Early American course."

"We tried [________ ] last year. We’re back!"
—K. Lewis, CA
"Thank you for providing these great books - "commissioning" new works and reprinting the best of the old. God bless you!"
—S. White, LA
"After using Beautiful Feet for a few years, we tried a ‘box curriculum’ last year. My children were bored to tears (and I can’t blame them). Your books make learning history fun and exciting. Your study guides are well written and easy to follow. Thanks for a job well done!"
—K. Funk, MI
"Thank you for putting on paper what I had in my heart. We must be kindred spirits! God bless you."
—M. Denny, NC
"In June of this year our family completed our very first year of home school . . . Praise the Lord! What an awesome year! I am a 44-year-old mommy who failed history in the public school. But God is turning that all around. ‘Docendo discimus: While we teach, we learn.’ (Latin Proverb) Each one of us together, reading and studying through literature, learning that none should fail! You have filled our hearts and minds with the love of God, the love of country and the love of those who have gone before in strength and courage on our behalf."
