Homeschool Review Crew: Our Review for Heroes of History- Ronald Reagan

     We love to learn about our Christian heroes of the past. It is a unique experience to read about how they lived and trusted in God.  When we were picked to receive and review one of the Heroes of History books titled Heroes of History- Ronald Reagan from YWAM Publishing, we were thrilled.  Ronald Reagan is one of our favorite presidents.


     As we learn about historical figures who lived lives pleasing to God, we can follow their examples.  Their faith and trust in God are a powerful testimony.  I feel it is important for us to study their lives so we can see how they were able to put God first and stand up for what is right. Having men and women like this to look up to is a blessing. 

     Our son Josh, who is 12, decided he wanted to be the one to read this wonderful Christian biography of Ronald Reagan.  He enjoyed learning about the election process back in November and took an interest in learning more about our Presidents soon after.  I knew this book would be a good fit for him.  

     It is hard to find a good biography that keeps a child's interest, but YWAM Publishing did it. Josh said it was one of the best books he has read.  He said he didn't lose focus while reading it.  That is huge for him as he has a few issues with focusing. As I watched him sit on the couch reading, I saw that he was not getting bored.  He was actually enjoying this book.  He even asked if we could buy some of the other books in the series.

      I asked him what he learned from this book and he said that he learned that even a young man can make a difference in this world.  He saw that Ronald Reagan was able to do big things as a teen and that meant he could do the same.  This book inspired him to take a stand for what he believes. Josh said, "You don't have to be an adult to make changes that can even save lives."  What an incredible lesson to teach our young people today. They can change things for the better!!!

     Do you have children who like having a study guide to keep them on track while reading?  Well, YWAM Publishing thought of that too.  They have some wonderful Unit Study Guides to go along with each book in this series.  These guides ask questions that keep you thinking as you read.  We used our study guide that we were given, to see how much Josh remembered.  It helps me to see how much he comprehends as he reads.
