Heroes Of History: Ronald Reagan


YWAM Publishing Review

Hi neighbors!

Here for review today we have Heroes of History Ronald Reagan, Destiny At His Side.  This book is published by YWAM Publishing.  Ronald Reagan is a 221 pg. paperback book, recommended for ages 10 up, written by Janet and Geoff Benge.  YWAM also has a downloadable curriculum study guide for each of their Heroes of History Books.  Be sure to visit their website for a complete listing. YWAM sells each book individually, but they also sell a few collections, where you can purchase several books together.


I want to start off here by saying that my 14, almost 15 year old daughter loves history and Ronald Reagan is one of her favorite historical figures.  She often share quotes from him on her social media, so she was super excited to get to read this historical biography.  She started reading the book the day it arrived as soon as I removed it from the packaging.  She approached me minutes later with questions concerning something in the book that she wasn't sure about and I required her to go study it out.  Yes, I now have notes in the side bars of the book where she would notate something she wanted to go look up further.  I love that this book encouraged her to study deeper into the life of Ronald Reagan.

This book and of course the others in this series make a great study for homeschool, or you could read them together as a family.  We often do this with books and then discuss together what we have read.  M was easily able to read a chapter at a time.  After finishing a chapter you can assign something from the curriculum study guide to further their learning.  YWAM is phasing out the CDs and going to downloadable curriculum study guides.

The curriculum study guide contains all different types of resources for you to implement into your homeschool curriculum.  There are essay questions, field trip suggestions, project ideas, and many other helpful ideas for your school scenario.  You can pick and choose what you would like to do and what would interest your child.  There are links to other helpful articles, music from the era and movies.

We personally own several other titles in both this series and their Christian Heroes series.  Our family has read several of them individually and my daughter has read every one we own.  We have a small collection of these titles on her bookshelf.  The Christian Heroes series includes many well known missionaries, her favorites being Gladys Alyward and Eric Liddell.

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.

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
