More Hebrew Woes

Okay so I have officially given up on Migdalor.  Without being able to use the Teacher's Guide, I just cannot make effective use of the resources.

Yesterday I sent a letter to Berhman House asking for advice.  I am trying to decide between two of their products.  We are looking at Shalom Ivrit and Kadima  Both programs come with music, flash cards and teachers guides.  Unfortunately from the website I cannot tell any real differences between the products which makes choosing extremely difficult.

In my letter, I explained our situation and provided background on Froggy including age and ability level.  People have spoken well of the customer service they have received from the company so I am hopeful that I will receive good advice.  I need to because this is my last hope of finding a decent program.

***UPDATE***
They responded very promptly this morning and recommended Shalom Ivrit.  I have ordered it.  I hope this is the last time I have to order a first year Hebrew program.

    Here's the online workbook for ot la ba'ot, which Kerith (al pi darko) seems to be using this year for 2 of her kids:
