Business Relocation

I am currently in the process of moving house and relocating the business to new premises. I apologise that during the period 11th - 25th November, 2017 there may be delays in the processing of orders. I trust this does not inconvenience you too much.

Uncle Eric

Uncle Eric

The Uncle Eric books have been voted a first place winner in the Government category of Mary Pride's 2017 Practical Homeschooling Reader Awards!

The Uncle Eric series of books is written by Richard J. Maybury for young and old alike. Using the epistolary style of writing (using letters to tell a story), Mr. Maybury plays the part of an economist writing a series of letters to his niece or nephew. With stories and examples, he gives interesting and clear explanations of topics that are generally thought to be too difficult for anyone but experts.

Bluestocking Guides

Bluestocking Guides are designed to reinforce and enhance a student's understanding and retention of the subject matter presented in the guide's corresponding primer. Each Bluestocking Guide includes comprehension questions relating to specific chapters within the primer. These include: Definition, True/False, and Short Answer/Fill-in questions. Answers are located in the back of the study guide. Application Exercises are also given for certain chapters. Generally, these ask the student to apply the knowledge he/she learned from a given chapter of the primer to "real world" situations. This way the student may personalize the information to better retain and apply the knowledge gained from the primer. Application Exercises typically include: Essay assignments, Research projects, and thought questions to facilitate student-instructor discussion. Many Bluestocking Guides will also include suggestions for further study (books, movies, etc.). A final exam is included and answers are located in the back of the study guide.
