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.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
