    I love all the guides

    Posted by Renee H. on 16th Jan 2016

    I love all the guides that I have used and this one is no exception. I love the "Dig Deeper" sections that make my child think about how the story relates to lessons to taught in scripture.

    The Red Badge of Courage

    Posted by Becky L. on 27th Apr 2015

    I purchased the ebook for my 8th grade daughter as part of a supplement since we are studying the Civl War and of course because it is a classic. I thoroughly enjoyed the depth of questions Progeny Press included as well as the vocabulary. The "Dig Deeper" questions were a good mix of Biblical Insights and introspective thoughts for students to explore and delve into. We had many good discussions with this book. Great guide, Progeny Press. Keep up the good work.
