As part of The Homeschool Crew, Guardian Angel Publishing sent me 4 e-books for me to use with my family and review. You may not be a huge fan of e-books, have no fear, this books are available in print as well as in the e-book format. We love books in our house, so I am always excited to find books that we have never seen before! Here is what they sent us;

The Sum of Our Parts: No Bones About It, by Bill KirkThis is a cute book that teaches you all about the bones inside your body. Now this could be a very dry subject, but not with this book! They have silly sometimes "creepy" illustrations, that my kids just loved! And they have rhymes to help teach you and help you to remember all those bones!!!

Gifts from God, by Cynthia ReegThis is a beautiful book. It has very vivid photos, as you can see from the cover art. On the inside pages you will find verses on one page and an easy reader sentence on the other page. This would be a book I could see cuddling up on the couch with a wee one to read.

Earthquake, by Susan J. Berger.  As a Southern Californian family, earthquakes are definitely something we need to be informed about. And this book is a handy little resource to do just that. First it teaches you the ins and outs ( and the ups and downs) of earthquakes. You will also find all sections on earthquake preparedness. And one thing I have learned living in Southern California, is that you need to be prepared!  Again, this is a subject matter that could be very dry and boring, however, the author has succeeded in making this a fun book for the whole family!

Hamster Holidays Noun and Adjective Adventures, by Cynthia Reeg
This is a cute and clever story that helps children grasp what nouns and adjectives are and how they work in sentences. They do this by color coding all the nouns blue and all the adjectives red. The downside of that, is that you can't use the story to test your knowledge. However, after the child reads this cute story, they can sharpen their skills by reading other story books. In the back of the book there are word activities, including a word search and crossword puzzle.

At Guardian Angel Publishing, they have so many titles to choose from. If you are not interested in any of these titles, there is bound to be one that catches your eye!  All books are available in e-book and print. Some are also available in cd. All of the e-books I checked were available for $5 to download. The print versions I looked up were available from $11.95 and below.
