Susan Marlow Book & Lapbook Review/Giveaway

I was blessed with the privilege to be able to read and review a book by Christan author Susan Marlow. Susan is a fantastic woman whom I have gotten to know over the past few months. Equally as great as she is, are here refreshingly wholesome and adventurous books! I would recommend these books for 3 grade and up.

Susan sent me the first book in the first in the Circle C Adventure series Andrea Carter and the Long Ride Home. Andrea Carter is a 12 year old girl who seem to constantly find herself in the mode of making what she thinks are good decisions that turn out to be bad judgment. She is a spirited young girl who loves the feeling of independence and has all the confidence is takes to think she has things under control.
Even though I have boys, I have been using this book as our read aloud, they adore this book.. What kid wouldn't like a book about adventure, suspense, bad guys, and being in the country. We loved this book so much we promptly bought books 2,3,&4 (Book #5 is due out Feb. 2010) so we could keep the series going! Our normal schedule is to read one chapter together after lunch, but the boys ALWAYS beg me to keep reading! If your kids are begging to keep going, who I am to say no? So lately is have been two chapters about 3 times a week. I have to admit, I am enjoying the books as much as they are.

You can purchase each book HERE for $10.50 (this price includes S&H)
OR
Buy all 4 Books for $30 from the same link above (this price already includes S&H)
Susan also sent along a LAPBOOK that goes along with the book we read. Each book has it's own lapbook to help you dig deeper into the story and understand the times, surroundings, and happenings of the time. It has been very helpful to be able to share these fun extra details with my guys. This lapbook has helped them to grasp the story and the era that theses stories take place, which helps to "build up" the next book! This was the first experience with LAPBOOKS, which some of you might find hard to believe that I have homeschooled for 4 years now and never even heard of them before ( I must have been living under some rock....) I enjoyed the process of making the book so the older boys and I could enjoy the whole learnign process together. We have not finished going through the entire book yet but we are working on it, and it has been a rewarding experience all the way around.
The lapbooks are made by, A Journey Through Learning , and are sold at CurrClick for $13.00......I saw on there site they are currently running a sale of 25% off...go stockpile some if you think this is something you would love to do with your kids.


Susan also offers an option to purchase the BOOK plus the LAPBOOK for $25 FREE SHIPPING!
