Discussion Book Series and A Boy and His Dog by Kayla Jarmon

We received three electronic books, A Boy, and His Dog,  Dying is Part of This World, and Don’t Forget Me from Kayla Jarmon for our review.
A Boy and His Dog Cover-01

A Boy and His Dog
You have heard folks say ” A Boy and His Dog! ”  This book shows the close friendship and relationship of both.  My husband is a dog person really can relate to this and we often have talks about our Dogs and our past pets we have had and loved.

This book was so cute!  It shows what a sweet loving and fun relationship he has with his dog and how they do everything together, even bath together and the dog even sleeps on his bed.  Daniel enjoyed this book, in our home, we have dogs whose names are Baby and Konike. Baby is our Great Pryensse and Konike is our Black Lab/Retriever mix who is chocolate colored.  Daniel knows that having a dog means more than just feeding and watering, it comes with expense and responsibility.

Dying is Part of This World Cover-01

Dying Is Part of This World
Everyone has to deal with this subject and it seems that we all struggle with this topic. This thoughtfully written book shares about the fear of death. There are scripture references and discussion questions to provoke great conversation and prayer. With God’s knowledge and wisdom, you can overcome the fear of death and live a victorious life! Christ has conquered death! Amen

Dying is Part of This World was sorta a needed thing for us, so getting to read this was very helpful.  We lost my Dad a year ago May 25th, on my birthday. This was hard for me, but Daniel came to NY with me and we saw him the day before he passed. Since Daniel has had questions, this made it easier for me to share my belief on this without the worry of my emotions taking over.  We could just read this book and talk about death in general. We know that my Dad is in heaven with God and having this book reaffirm this helped us a lot. At the end of each chapter is discussion questions for us to use and talk about. Really great book if your trying to share this with your children and have lost someone close to you.

Don't Forget Me Cover-01

Don’t Forget Me 
Don’t Forget Me depicts a conversation between God and the Baby through pregnancy and birth. It will bring emotions and maybe even a tear to your eyes, as you are reminded that God is the author and giver of life. A perfect gift for expectant parents and siblings!

This book is meant to be used in the Christian Home. The Discussion Book Series encourages great discussions with discussion questions and Scripture references. This book is aimed at family discussion or even a woman’s bible study or teen girls class on marriage and pregnancy!

Since Daniel is my baby, I read this one myself.  This is the most Thoughtful and Encouraging book. Not just for children but for anyone expecting a baby.  It would be a great book to read to your children if you are expecting to share the biblical worldview of God being there from conception, birth and beyond.  I loved how it showed the love of God for the child, the love of the mother for her child and also the love of the father for the mother and for the Lord. The illustrations are so sweet and portray just how it is from the womb and it gives a very thoughtful and modest way of showing what happens in birth.  This book touched my heart even as a mom who has had many a miscarriage and it really should be in the church and the home. I love the verses in the back of the book that we can use to share God’s word with our children on conception, development, and birth.  I really love this book!

I hope you will consider these books for your children and your home. Also, consider getting this for your church when it is available in paperback or audio. I would so highly encourage Don’t Forget Me, for a teen group or a pre-marriage class.   All of these books are so well illustrated and very well written.

CursiveLogic Review

Cursive Logic Student Workbook

Today we are pleased to bring you our review of the  CursiveLogic Quick-Start Pack and The Art of Cursive by CursiveLogic.  CursiveLogic is a fast and efficient way to learn cursive handwriting.  The lessons in the student workbook can be used by children teaching cursive letters in a very methodical way ( you will need a separate student workbook for each student who is going to be learning. ) while The Art of Cursive can be used for those who have completed the course or for adults to color, relax and destress while using what is learned from CursiveLogic.  The following video shares a bit about why this was developed and about how it works.

 Our Review

We were given the CursiveLogic Quick-Start Pack which contains the seminar for showing you how to use the program to teach your children or others, so that they can learn cursive fairly quickly.  After viewing the seminar, I decided that I would give daughter Faith a chance to try using this.  The student handbook shows the children in picture about posture, correct hand position and the proper ways to form the letters using 4 strokes similar in all of the letters of the lower case alphabet.  There are also lessons teaching uppercase alphabet. It is a very through study in cursive handwriting.  This could be easily adapted for younger children, but my own are ages 10, 14 and 15.  I allowed each of my children to try a page or two in the Cursive Logic Student Workbook. After this Faith worked through numerous lessons for our review. My 10 year old son was not into doing more, I guess that is his age and that he thinks cursive is too fancy for him to be doing.  My 14 year old daughter liked it but said she would let Faith be the one to use this, since she has many more years of schooling to do herself and Faith would be done with school sooner.  Being use to manuscript Faith found it very time consuming and difficult for her, that isn’t to say that it is hard to do in general, just hard for her. I hope through using this it will give her more motivation to keep writing and with practice she will see how beautiful cursive handwriting is.

This program could also be used to teach adults.

I decided to show some examples of the lesson and of her cursive work, so that you can get a better idea of how things progress in the workbook.

 

For months my children have commented on how nice my handwriting is and this came from many lessons as a child that took many more hours and so much more time then the way they are learning to write cursive.  Truth be told I did not realize how rusty I had become in my handwriting until I tried doing this program. I think it is good for all of us to learn from as a family. Given how so many schools are not teaching this art and discipline today, I have decided to teach my own so that one day they can sign their names nicely, write letters that are legible.  I also want them to learn History and be able to read documents that were years ago written with the finest cursive handwriting. After all if it was taught to men and women alike years ago, I feel it should be taught today.

We are looking forward to completing the course as we will be having some fun using The Art of Cursive, to learn how we can incorporate cursive into some beautiful artwork. We will be using it to make some artwork to hang up around our home.  It contains some lovely pictures to color and use the cursive handwriting  learned in the program and also very wise quotes and sayings to inspire us daily. We will be using some colorful gel pens we were given and I think this will make studying this as an Art form even more fun !

We really enjoyed this and I hope that you will consider using this with your children or even for yourself.
