Multi-use Resources

I've found these resources to be very useful in multiple unit studies. They fit together in the multi-disciplinary approach that we use to homeschooling. Most of the books I purchased from Christian Discount Book (CDB) at a large discount. CDB is a valuable site and I've found the membership well worth the cost.
