Since January of 2017 I have been doing reviews for the Homeschool Review Crew which is a branch of The Old Schoolhouse also known as TOS. The Homeschool Review Crew is a group of 200 or so homeschooling families world wide that blog about homeschool products. We review products and use social media as an outlet to get the news about these products out.


The reviews that I do are honest.

If something doesn’t work for our family, I explain why.

If we LOVE something, we get pretty enthusiastic about it!


The reviews that I do are based on a Biblical Worldview.

If something is contrary to God’s Word or shows any red flags in this regard, I will let you know.


The reviews that I do are personal.

I try very hard to use these products as they were intended and include real stories of real experiences, photos, and sometimes videos.


The reviews that I do are good quality.

I try to include all information that I would want to know about something.

What does it include?

How can you use it?

What age group works well with this product?

Is it large family friendly?

Is it a physical product or a download?

And more questions like these.

The reviews are linked to many other reviews of the same product!

Because I work with a crew, at the bottom of my Crew Reviews I include a banner with a link so that you can view other reviews on the same product.


Here are some of the products we’ve been reviewing recently:
