Harcourt family learning series - useful

We've been using the Harcourt Family Learning Complete Curriculum books with our kids, including one child who's disabilities make reading and math pretty darned hard.

I'm happy with them. Amazon.com has a pretty good list of the books. The books were published by "Spark Publishing" (Flash Kids), but their web site is gone. I suspect they're no more. I can't find any evidence anyone else is publishing these.

The reading and math exercises are interesting enough and quite polished. The Grade 3 level readings are reasonably interesting to our 11 yo boy; it's tough to find that kind of age interesting/readable combination anywhere else.

Recommended if you can find 'em! We have the "complete curriculum" for grades 1, 3 and 4.

FYI...I stumbled upon the Harcourt Family Learning Complete Curriculum books at Barns & Noble.
