Golden Prairie Press offered the TOS crew one e-book to review out of four different e-books that Amy Puetz offers such as:
Heroines of the Past Bible Study (normally $27.00 on sale for $21.60)
Costumes with Character (normally $21.95 on sale for $17.56)
Uncover Exciting History (normally $14.95 on sale for $11.96)
and since we are studying U.S. History this I was hoping to review Uncover Exciting History because lets face it, history books aren't always exciting and I need all the help I can get to spark my children's interest in America's past. This book is fascinating, we've had the best time exploring history and have found that it IS exciting, captivating and we had fun. One of my favorite things was the Digging Deeper notes at the end of each story. These notes offered activities, recipes, follow up questions, mapping and game recommendations. We really enjoyed learning about George Washington and even got to attend a special exhibit at Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, OK called Discover the Real George Washington. Between the e-book and exhibit we had a much greater understanding of George Washington.
This past week we've been working on an American Indians unit study and we just happen to be in the Four Corners area of the U.S. The Navajo are established in this area so as we were traveling I was able to read The Navajo Code Talkers chapter from Uncover Exciting History to my children (and hubby), it was fascinating and brought the story to life.
Thanks for reading,
