Big Book Of History Review

Gift Guide Post #

Hey Neighbors!

I will be including reviews from Master Books on a regular basis now, but I have some I thought would make some great gifts.  The first one is Big Book of History, a 15 ft. fold-out time-line from Creation to Modern Computers.  The contributing editors are, Laura Welch, Bodie Hodge, and Ken Ham.  The book is recommended for ages 7-12.  This is a really attractive and exciting book.  It will help spark your child's interest in history.

 The Big Book of History includes facts on Biblical/Christianity, World Events, Civilizations?Empires, and Inventions/Technology.  It includes birthdates of kings, leaders, inventors, and famous men of God.  Dates of wars fought, and of course dates of inventions and discoveries.

15 feet of information!
My 11 year old loves history, so this book was perfect for her, but even I found many new and interesting facts.

We will be including this in our homeschool. I didn't include the funny video where my daughter had trouble pronouncing Sacajawea.  It was really cute.  So, not only did we get a hisroty lesson, we also learned how to pronounce a new word!  Master Books carries a whole line of Christian books that are great for homeschoolers.  Be sure to visit their website!  You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter!

Disclosure:I received no monetary compensation for this post.  I did receive a Big Book of History for review purposes.  All quotes are taken from the Master Books website.  All thoughts and opinions are mine.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
