Sweet Critique: Reader’s Digest Educational Gift Pack

Reader’s Digest has sent me more awesome books!!!  And this time, they’ve put them together in a pack of four, just for the student in your life!

These are great books filled with tons of information about each specific subject.  Here’s a look at each one:

  • I Wish I Knew That:  Geography – James Doyle:  Earlier this month I reviewed a similar book, but it was more suited to adults.  This book is perfect for little minds to learn all sorts of fun stuff about geography.  It’s got cute illustrations, a fun font, and it covers things like continents, the Earth, and oceans.  There’s even a cool little section on ecological communities.
  • I Wish I Knew That - Steve Martin; Mike Goldsmith, Ph.D.; and Marianne Taylor:  This is my absolute favorite of the set, and probably my favorite of all the RD books I’ve gotten so far!  I enjoy learning the “why” behind things and learning about all sorts of miscellaneous things.  Sure, I may not really ever need to know that Baku is the capital of Azerbaijan, but it’s still great to have the opportunity to learn it.  The book is divided up into sections like literature, history, and math.
  • i before e (except after c):  Easy Cool Ways to Remember Facts - Susan Randol:  Like things like Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally?  Then this is the book for you!  Filled with a myriad of ways to remember all sorts of facts, you’ll find an acronym, rhyme, or acrostic for just about anything.
  • Write (Or Is That “Right”?) Every Time:  Cool Ways to Improve Your English - Lottie Stride:  This book is filled with all sorts of grammar, spelling, and punctuation goodness!  This is a great reference for your child; it’s very thorough and complete.  The material is presented in a fun and intriguing way, though, making it great for kids!

Reader’s Digest is giving all four of these books to one of you!!  Use the Rafflecopter form to enter!
