Homeschooling VS Public Education

I was recently contacted to view and share an infographic on homeschooling versus public education. It is pretty interesting to see that homeschoolers are excelling in areas as compared to their peers. I think a good bit of this has to do with parents who really care about their child(ren)'s education and who are dedicated to providing quality learning materials to help move their children forward as well as dedication of their time and the ability to personalize the education to the learning style of each child.

Here is the infographic:

Homeschool Domination

If you are looking for some supplemental social studies books exploring United States History and factoids, my JGDS series would make a perfect fit for homeschoolers just starting in a state study. Books can be used as an overall course supplement (all United States) or as individual state studies (as completed). Each book has a supplemental study guide which explores several of the clues in the books a bit further, developing research and thinking skills as well as other curricula, thus tying geography or state studies in with math, ELA, science, arts & crafts, and game skills.

If you are interested in getting started, there is a special deal going on for the next week - buy 2 get 1 for 1/2 off ($25 total for three books); buy all six states available for $50 which is like buying five and getting the sixth one for free. It's never too early to start your series. The series will hopefully pick back up in 2013 but finances right now prohibit from getting more books published. For this special, you will get five chances for the afghan drawing for every three books purchased and if you refer a friend and that friend purchases and they let me now you referred them, I'll give the referer five more chances for the drawing. The referee will also get their five chances per three books purchased. See you all in the postings.

Train of Clues

I'm almost ready to re-release "Train of Clues" (a mystery destination story, the predecessor to the JGDS series). We've had a few glitches since its original publication in 2010, but I think Heather has finally fixed everything (removed all the doubled paragraphs/pages) and we have moved things around so the book is longer page-wise but the story is the same length. I hope to re-release it this week or next. I'm even thinking this one may go up as an ebook just to test the waters with it, being that it is also illustrated and I'm not sure how it will work as an ebook. I will keep you all posted on this.
