Homeschool Specialists' Spotlights▼▲
Your artistically inclined students will love the opportunity to make their history lessons come alive! Volumes cover the time of creation to the 20th century, so you have plenty of period options to choose from. Each lesson features a prominent event, step-by-step drawing instruction, and a summary paragraph to be copied for cursive handwriting practice. Scattered throughout the book are tidbits about each drawing.
A great supplement to any history program, especially for students who love to draw! Ages 8 to 12, but adaptable for younger children. 64 pages each, softcovers from CPR Publishing. -- Rebekah
Valerie5 Stars Out Of 5Great way to stay focused on GodNovember 12, 2015ValerieQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As a homeschool mom I try and find things that will excite and teach in one simple motion, especially with 2 different grade levels. This helps both boys to draw with an emphasis on our Creator but the cursive writing is a nice addition for my older son.

It has not disappointed me. Love the series as it allows my children to learn to draw on their own (we are homeschoolers) at a very affordable cost!

Tell us a little about yourself. I am a homeschooling mother of seven. I have
home schooled for 10 years. My oldest is
entering 10th grade and my youngest is 3 months
old. My husband works for a home school art
supply company and we travel across the country
to home-school conferences every spring/summer.
In my "spare time" I love to write, garden, volunteer at church, and scrapbook.
What was your motivation behind this project? God was definitely my motivation! I have wanted to write a book since I was ten years old, but I never knew what to write. Home-school parents at the conferences we attend would talk about what type of books that they wished we had....so we listened and started writing and publishing them. Some encouraging friends, a lot of prayer, and two years later, here we are!
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope that this series of books will help make history more memorable for both children and their parents. I also hope that it will give children a sense of accomplishment and confidence in their artwork.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I have always been a huge fan of C.S. Lewis.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: More books will be coming out in this series. So keep watching! We plan to keep going up the time line with books on the vikings, Middle Ages and Renaissance and American History.
