My daughter and I are absolutely fascinated with stories from the past. We could sit and listen to our relatives tell stories forever, and have the chance to ask a lot of questions too. We recently had the chance to review Bessie’s Pillow published by Strong Learning, Inc. The author of the book is Linda Bress Silbert. This book is based on a true story. It is a story of a young immigrant’s journey.
Unit studies can come in handy when you want to study something specific. It’s nice to be able to incorporate different subjects while your study one topic. For this review we received a physcial copy of the book HEROES OF HISTORY – Davy Crockett: Ever Westward, and a Unit Study Curriculum Guide by YWAM Publishing.
Heroes of History are very interesting biographies that bring history to life. The stories are true stories about men and woman who changed the course of history. The stories are in a narrative format that discuss history, geography, government, and science topics. Davy Crockett is suggested for ages 10 and older.
