Before In the Hands of a Child made its debut, homeschoolers had to do all of the preparation themselves in order to pull together a lapbook. Knowing how much their own children learned and enjoyed learning in this style they knew they could meet a need for homeschoolers who wanted to put more of a hands-on spin to their curriculum, but were daunted by the task. They took the preparation time out of the parent-teacher job description and allowed moms and dads to focus on the learning experience. Niki McNeil, Kimm Bellotto, and Katie Kubesh have built a strong link of communication and mutual friendship with many of their customers through on-line co-op groups and Yahoo email groups.


Here are just some of the many lapbooks and products available from Hands of a Child.
