Scholastic Warehouse Sale Finds

We continue to chase interests in our homeschool. My reluctant reader needs books that interest her, that draw her in, that tell her more about a subject she likes, to give her the practice and experience that she needs.

And last month, I found a series of books that is new to me, a series that will allow us to chase some interests and address some academics as well. I love a two-fer.

Scholastic Warehouse Sales are a great resource. (Go HERE to find one near you. Be sure to sign up for email updates so that you will be notified when a sale is happening in your area.)

I have been to two Scholastic Warehouse Sales in two states. I could stay for hours and browse the books. Most books are 50% off.

I found a group of books that is new to me. The book about The Beatles caught my eye. You can see it here. My girl is a rock-and-roll fan and she likes The Beatles. There were quite a few similar books shelved with the book about The Beatles, including one about Rosa Parks, another about Barack Obama; Marco Polo; Abraham Lincoln; Walt Disney; Albert Einstein. There is a long list of titles inside the back covers of the books; they are published by Grosset & Dunlap, and the web site listed on the back cover is Amazon has them.

I gave her "Who Were The Beatles" for Christmas. We're home again after a trip to my parents' house, and tonight, she picked up that book and read two chapters aloud. She learned about John and Paul in those two chapters.

I love it. I hope her interest continues.
