Best Online Homeschool Store?

What do you think is the best online homeschooling supply store? Why do you prefer it over others?

I like Christian Books Distributors (Christianbooks.com). I like them because they have a great selection (I can usually find whatever I am looking for), their prices are among the lowest, and I really like that you can see sample pages from most books. That is very helpful when selecting curriculum. You can't do that at other sites.

I actually like them too although all the curriculum I use is secular. I buy most of my stuff from them and singaporemath.com.

I would be interested in the secular as well. Any specific books you can recommend? Thanks.

One of my favorites is Rainbow Resource Center. I love their catalog (which you can order free from the website at http://www.rainbowresource.com/index.php). The catalog is over 1000 pages. The products are reasonably priced and most of them have a detailed explanation. I order 90% of our school books from them.

I use Explode the Code for grammar/language arts, Wordly Wise for vocabulary, Map Skills, Grade 1 for map skills, Miquon Math (combined with Singapore Math) for math, and Story of the World for history. The rest I get from Singaporemath.com and a few odds and ends I find that I think would be useful.

I have ordered many curriculum items on line from learningthings.com and rainbow resource.com, and science and math manipulatives from Delta-education.com. Sciencekit.com (Boreal Laboratories) is a great place for pre-packaged science lab kits, with supplies, instructions and answer keys. You do have to supply the more pricy lab items such as microscopes and graduated cylinders (but you can buy those from this site as well), and you have to buy a few easy to purchase perishable items for experiments, such as grape juice, cabbage, etc. I loved the quality of the items and speed in which orders were delivered from all of these suppliers. :idea:
