Guardian Angel Publishing (TOS Crew Review)

As a member of the 2009-2010 The Old Schoolhouse Homeschool Crew, I received a few e-books for free from Guardian Angel Publishing to use and review. The books we received were Earthquake, The Sum of Our Parts: No Bones About It, and Andy and Spirit Go To The Fair.

The books are easy to read and interesting, with illustrations that catch even the youngest child's attention. The kids (and mom!) really enjoyed the book, The Sum of Our Parts: No Bones About It! I adored human anatomy in college, and with all of my well-developed language skills, all those parts' names were fun to learn (mostly) - and I love teaching the kids about our bodies because of my fascination with the topic. The Guardian Angel Publishing book had a lot of great information inside, with eye-catching images and a fun rhyme about the body's bones. In essence, if you read the book, then memorize the engaging rhyme, you could actually know the major bones in your body by heart! How fun and easy is that?!?! {smiling big}

We also enjoyed the other books, with Andy and Spirit Go to the Fair being our second favorite. This book is a touching story of a child with a disability, some insecurity, and an opportunity to rise above his handicap. My daughter especially loved this book, and both of my [school-age] children commented on the detailed pictures. At the end of the story, there is some information about wild horses and the programs dedicated to ensuring a quality life for them. There is also information about adopting the domesticated horses that are brought out of the wild when the population gets too large. If you or your children are horse lovers, this book would be a great read for sure. And if you enjoy exposing your children to the "differently-abled" people in the world (as I do), this is a MUST have for your home library.
