A few years ago our daughter really struggled with reading, but now you can't stop her. She reads about 5 middle school level books a week. When she heard we were chosen to review the The Scavengers - eGuide from Progeny Press she was thrilled. A new book that she hasn't read before and a study guide to help her through it. What more could you ask for?
Last year we were able to use the e-guide from Progeny Press with our Charlotte's Web book and she loved it as well. These study guides are like no other ones we have seen or tried before in the past. They are unique.
The book we were using with the e-guide is called The Scavengers by Michael Perry. We were able to borrow our book from our local e-book library site so that was a bonus for us. We didn't have to buy anything for this review 😊
Right away Hope, our 11 year old daughter, started reading. She said the book was a perfect reading level for her. The book is about a little girl named Maggie whose family has chosen not to live in the special "bubble cities" that were created by the government to "help" the people to live better lives free from the troubles of the world. Maggie's family has to work extra hard to live off the land that is left over for them and are fortunate to find a place that they can survive, but then something happens..... I will let you read the book to find out.
Now let's talk about the awesome e-guide for this book. This e-guide begins with some pre-reading activities and then gets right to work teaching vocabulary words in each lesson. After that it's time for some reading comprehension They teach this by asking questions that are important to the book. The lessons are ended with digging deeper into the book by answering some questions using Bible verses as reference.
The Scavengers has 59 chapters in it, so Progeny Press has separated the e-guide to study about 8 chapters at a time. I think this was a perfect break down for this book. I didn't feel like she was rushed through the book. Instead she had time to read and think through what was going on at a perfect pace.
I just love the study guides provided by Progeny Press and hope they continue to make more. I know I have a few picked out for our new school year beginning next month.
