I can Read - Adventure Bible - God's Great Creation - Review

We have been homeschooling for about three years. When my older two children learned to read they were in public school and so I helped but never had to teach them all by myself. Captain America however has been all me, having never gone to public school at all (in fact this year would have seen him in Kindergarten) the buck stops here, so to speak.

I have been collecting level one and two readers. So when I was offered a copy of I Can Read - God's Great Creation. Although this book is a level two, Captain America did an excellent job reading it. I only had to assist him with the hard words.


This books tells the story of the creation. It goes through all the days of creation and ends up with Adam and Eve eating the forbidden fruit and being cast out from the Garden of Eden.

Captain America really enjoyed the story, it's told in quite simplistic vocabulary, which is suitable for level 2. There are a couple of parts in the story that don't quite fit in with my King James bible translation, but that was easy enough to discuss.

All in all Captain America liked it and gave it two thumbs up!

The Imagination Station #15 Surprise at Yorktown Review


We recently received a copy of Surprise at Yorktown by The Imagination Station. Captain America was really excited to see another on of these books. He really loved the other one we read in the series. I like that they combined a children adventure book with historical facts and information. This time the cousins Beth and Patrick go on an adventure to help George Washington. This couldn't have come at a more perfect time. Captain America is starting to memorize a poem about George Washington. He loves it when he can learn about the same subject in different ways, and a story book is perfect. 

Captain America loves that the characters travel through time and help out where ever needed. This little book is full of adventure and excitement.

Definitely got two thumbs up at our house!

Although I read this to Captain America this time round, it will have a place on our bookcase because I will definitely encourage him to read it again by himself in a year or two.

Random Five November 21 2014

It's been a great week. I can't believe it's Thanksgiving next week.

1. Boo turned 12. In our church that means she moves up from the primary (children) to the youth (12-18 year old) It's a big step for her and she's very excited. The girls came around the night before her birthday and put balloons all over our front door.

2. I think I have Christmas organized. Shhhh don't tell the kids.

3. The Review Crew is all over for another year. I have a couple of book reviews that I need to post other than that I am think I am in withdrawals. Roll on December 1st!

4. We normally take the kids out for dinner on their birthday. This year Boo asked if we could take her to the movies instead. I thought that was a great idea - so tonight we are off to the movies! I didn't tell her it actually saves us money. Since I was going to suggest a date night with the hubby to see the same movie.

5. I am sat watching A Knight's Tale I think besides The Princess Bride it is my favorite movie.
