All About Spelling's Beehive Reader - I'm Mad!
Topic: Homeschool Product Review
I'm mad, and it's all Joshua's fault! Again! What did he do this time? He lost the new Beehive Reader 1 that we recieved to review from All About Spelling. We have looked and looked for it and can't find it anywhere!
I guess I shouldn't be that mad. I guess I should be rather happy. After all, this was one the first books that Joshua has ever shown an interest in reading on his own. In fact, when our Beehive Reader 1 first arrived, he whisked it away with me barely having a chance to look at it. I think he read most if not all of it. There were a couple of chapters that he read to me before losing it, but the rest was by himself.
I should be glad that he liked the beautiful pictures. Pictures like the following:
I'm sure the very well written stories that go along with the All About Spelling program that we've been using helped him to love The Beehive Reader 1. The stories (at least the ones that I recall before the book was whisked away) were very entertaining and very meaningful. None of this globble-di-gook that you get from some children's books written these days. Although they were written for children in the first grade, these stories had substance.
And, this was no small book. This phonics based book has 10 stories in its 160 pages. Here is a copy of it's table of contents:
I should be thrilled that when we find the book ~ and I'm sure we will after cleaning his room ~ that our Beehive Reader 1 will be in great condition. After all, it is very well bound, hard cover book with very durable pages. Here is a picture of it's beautiful cover.
I am happy that when I do finally find the book and can write a review about it that I will be able to tell all of you that the Beehive Reader 1 supplements the All About Spelling program and is very reasonably priced. The list price is only $19.95. I am also glad that Marie Rippel, the author of the All About Spelling Program and the Beehive Reader 1 is already in the process of adding more Beehive Reader's to the series.
Oh well, enough of my woes. I have to stop crying over spilled milk and write the Beehive Reader 1 review. Wait a minute...I guess my ramblings above was my review. You see, if you have a positive attitude good things will happen !
Now I can tell you that if you want to find out more about the Beehive Reader 1 you can click here or on any one of the hi-lighted links above. And I can mention that you can click here to find out what the other TOS Crew Members think about the Beehive Reader 1. And, finally, I can tell you that since this reader is also perfect for public/private school kids as well as homeschool students, that instead of saying "Happy Homeschooling", I can say "Happy Home Educating".
As a member of the TOS Homeschool Crew I was sent a free copy of The Beehive Reader 1 in order to use and review on my blog.
