Excellent Resource For Middle Grade Classes
KidVenture books are well-suited for homeschool kids who like like to work independently and do their own research. The questions at the end of each chapter can be used by parent-teachers to prompt deeper conversations.
Veteran homeschooler and book blogger Lisa's Reading agrees. She writes in her review of KidVenture: Twelve Weeks To Midnight Blue:
I can see that this book would make an excellent resource for middle grade classes. Many schools and homeschools take time to introduce students to business terminology, economics, and entrepreneurship. This story could be used a chapter at a time. The chapters will make wonderful discussion time and even group assignments. It’s very heavy on math with lots of calculations. The story concerns a family: mother, father, son, and daughter. The boy wants to earn money to buy a special bike and the book takes us through his journey to learn how to grow a small business.
Thank you, Lisa.
