Big things are brewing! We are in the process of planning a pretty big shin-dig for mid-March, but the occasion is still hush-hush. I can tell you we have a lot of books to giveaway, some exciting news to share about the site, and fun new writers for you to meet.
We’ll be covering some Greek and Roman subjects in the upcoming week or two, as well as (hopefully) some Easter books. But for now, Janie and I wish you a happy Monday…and lots of free books!
- Free Fractions Curriculum from Math Essentials. Fyi, you do have to like their Facebook page to get your copy.
- Anne of Green Gables…for $.99? Plus all the Anne books, audiobook versions, and three other novels by Montgomery. Not a bad deal. (Actually, there are lots of classics for $.99 out there, and many–possibly this one–can be had for free on this free Kindle classic novel page.)
- Free Charlotte Mason ebook: The Way of the Will.
- Free Kids’ eBooks: On this Amazon page, I counted 17 free books for kids including a tongue-twister book and one on U.S. Presidents by the folks at Reader’s Digest.
- Wycliffe Discovery Center: If you’re looking for an exciting, educational spring break, why not take your family here. And since it’s located in Orlando, FL, it’s especially convenient for you folks who are headed to Disneyworld or other FL attractions: “Encounter people, languages, and cultures you’ve never seen before. Use all of your senses as you learn about the art and science of Bible translation through award-winning multimedia and games. Discover how the Bible was preserved throughout history—and how God is using it to bring hope and freedom to forgotten, marginalized people groups today.”
- For the Love of Reading Together: One mom shares what she and her kids are learning as they read together.
- Can Comics Trump Textbooks? The secular world considers the teaching ability of comic books.
- March Madness…for hip nerds : Let Literaritea show you how to leverage your kids’ interest in basketball to make the upcoming March basketball frenzy more educational and interactive!
- Unplugging Bullies: This article argues that the biggest threat for kids online isn’t adult predators anymore but other kids. Thankfully, it details some solutions that don’t involve brainwashing anyone about abnormal sexuality. Unfortunately, those interviewed do include unfriendly comments about LGBT issues in their definition of bullying: “For example, the week before prom, every year, you can see a spike in bullying against LGBT kids. With our tool, you can analyze how that spreads—you can make an epidemiological map. And then the social-network site can target its limited resources. They can also trace the outbreak back to its source.” I am sure LGBT kids do get bullied and would never condone that…but are we also protecting Christian students from being bullied for their unpopular beliefs as well?
Have a great week everyone! And as always, let us know if you have freebies or book reviews or even review requests you’d like to pass on!
