One review we always look forward to is the literary study guides from Progeny Press because they always help the kids think more about the stories they are reading. For the last few weeks, the kids have been reading Redwall and using the Redwall Study Guide to dive deeper into the story.
For this review, we were given two study guides - the Redwall Study Guide as well as the Cricket in Times Square Study Guide. While we have only had the time to go in depth using the Redwall guide, both of these guides follow the same format and we look forward to using the Cricket in Times Square study guide once we are finished with the first study.
However, what makes Progeny Press different from other literature study guides is that Progeny Press uses Biblical teachings, backed with scripture, to tie the story into practical lessons. While many books contain content or beliefs that do not align with Christian beliefs, Progeny Press guides direct students to instead study what God says about such things so they will be better prepared and strong in their faith when they face such behavior, language, and philosophy in life.
Next, literary techniques that are used by the author are introduced with activities that help the student understand concepts such as alliteration, metaphors, conflict, compare and contrast, mood and coming of age.
