Make Room Monday #2, Find Out About France, Spain, & China


So here's the deal. I have a lot of homeschooling stuff. Tons. I buy more each year and I get quite a bit from the Homeschool Review Crew. I don't, however, buy more bookshelves each year. You can see the dilemma, right?

Since I need more room for new books, I have decided to spend the rest of the summer giving away some of the stuff that we're not using anymore. You read right, I am offering free homeschooling curriculum. Everything I offer will be in Excellent to Like New condition.

Next up are three books from the Find Out About series. Find Out About France, China, and Spain specifically. The books are brand-spanking new. We received them with our Winter Promise Children Around the World "program." Since we ditched decided to go another route six weeks into that "adventure", I'm willing to part with this trio. Don't worry, they are not written or published by WP so it is safe to read them to your children.

Each book includes:

*Where is Spain/France/China?
*Map
*How to Say Spanish/French/Chinese Words
*An Introduction
*Life in Spain/France/China
*Facts About Spain/France/China
*Let's Learn Spanish/French/Chinese

In the event of full disclosure, what we read of the Spain book didn't thrill us. It didn't go in-depth enough for my fifth grader and there was a lot of me butchering the Spanish language. So we didn't even finish reading it. Not that big of a deal because WP had us reading this book while we were studying Switzerland.  Weird, right?

That being said, I think these books would be great for younger children. The books each center around a "family" from that culture and they give you a little tour around their country. I think they'd be just enough of an overview for the younger kidlets.

Sound like a good fit for your family? Enter below. Good luck!

Haylee likes this kind of thing and says she'd love to win it! I'd love to take the kids to England someday so they can see where I am from.

We're just finishing a year of studying different countries so these would be great to reinforce what we learned. If we could travel anywhere, I'd love to take our family to the Holy Lands. My hubby got to spend 3 weeks there for college and said it was an amazing experience. Thanks for the giveaway!

I want to go everywhere!! I've been to China, Thailand, Burma, and Loas but that only scratched the itch. :) I would love to go back to Thailand though to some of the pretty parts. It is so gorgeous there.
