TOS Crew: Bee Hive Reader

On my first voyage with the Homeschool Crew, I reviewed two products from All About Spelling. One was their Spelling program, you can see that review here. The other product I reviewed was their product called All About Homophones, you can see that review, here.

This year, once again I have been given the opportunity to look over a product by All About Spelling. I was sent a copy of The BeeHive Reader.  This is a beginning reader that is designed to go hand in hand with the Level 1 Spelling program, although it can be used as a stand alone as well.

The book is a high quality, 160 page, hard cover book. Which, I really liked. The illustrations were beautiful. It reminded me of an old fashioned reader. However, the language was current. One of the down sides of using old books to teach reading, is that they use Old English. With the BeeHive Reader, you have the same feeling of an older book, with the quality, the illustrations, the nice hard cover, however the words used are words  that your young reader would be familiar with. Even if they were not using the All About Spelling spelling program. However, the benefit of the reader and the spelling program working together, is that the words are reinforced!

The only downside for me is the price. $19.99 is more than I would be able spend on a reader. However, it is
definitely  a quality product.

Please visit All About Spelling to see their full product line.

As usual, sail on over to the crew blog to see what my crew mates have to say!

**I was given a free copy of The BeeHive Reader  in exchange for my honest opinion. All opinions expressed in this review, are mine alone.
