2004 was the first official business year for BrimWood Press. However, with over 28 years of combined management experience in corporate America, we are harnessing our business know-how and our eight years of home schooling experience to start a home based publishing company. As an experienced husband and wife team, supported by three energetic and resourceful children, we look forward to accomplishing our mission of bringing visually rich, intellectually stimulating and engaging products to parents/teachers and the children they instruct.
In 2003, we piloted several of our "Tools for Young Historians" products with eight home schooling families. Here are a couple of their comments about our products:
"We thought your product was great! It really brought "time" to life for me as a mother who doesn't remember studying much world history in school. Tools for Young Historians provides a great overview, a visual and mental framework to "hang" things on." -Rose
"Since I began studying history with my children 6 years ago, I have been searching for something to help them understand history and its relationship to time. I purchased timelines where we would fill in dates and add pretty pictures, which was fun, but I could tell they were not understanding the concepts of time and how years/decades/centuries are related to each other and to history. These lessons gave my children a wonderful understanding of why our timeline is structured as it is." - Kathy
