Does your children and family enjoy listening to adventures? My kids really enjoy listening to audio drams, especially the ones that keep you on your seat and you want to keep listening because you want to know what happens next. Heirloom Audio Productions has a new audio drama out called The Cat of Bubastes. This audio drama is great for the whole family.
My kids have always been into Astronomy. My daughter is more curious then my son, as she is always wanting to go outside to look at the stars to see what we can find. We had the chance to review the Book of Astronomy Set by Memoria Press. This is geared towards kids in grades 3 – 5.
I received the Student Book and the Teacher Book. The Teachers Book is set up the same way the Student book is, except that it has answers in it. In this program the kids will learn about constellations, the motion of earth, names of stars, as well as which season you will see the constellations, for example the Summer Triangle and the Winter Zodiacs.
One of the things we really enjoy in our history class is to read different biographies about people from the past. YWAM Publishing has a nice variety of different biographies of both men and women of history. For this particular review we received the book Heroes of History – Christopher Columbus and a digital copy of the Unit Study Curriculum Guide. This book is for ages 10 and older.
We had the chance to review the Second Grade Literature Guide Set from Memoria Press. The set included an answer key, The Courage of Sara Noble, Prairie School, Tales From Beatrix Potter, Animal Folk Tales of America, and Little House In the Big Woods. We were going to do Little House in the Big Woods but my daughter wanted to start with The Courage of Sarah Noble.
