Raising Real Men book and Hero Tales Audio CDs - Giveaway



The Book - Raising Real Men: Surviving, Teaching and Appreciating Boys (Retail value $15.)

This incredible book was written by Hal and Melanie Young, parents of six boys and two girls. They are a much loved family in the homeschool community and have excellent advice for parents. This book is 250 pages and in paperback.  I did a review for this book in 2009 and loved it!

The Audio Cd's- (Retail value $7 for each one.)

Hal Young Reads Hero Tales, which was written by Henry Cabot Lodge and Theodore Roosevelt. There are two Cd's in this set - Part 1 and Part 2.

Hal does an incredible job reading the stories. His voice is clear and steady and interesting. There are little sound effects that make the entire experience enjoyable!

Has your child ever looked at a history book and thought they couldn't read it? Perhaps the idea of reading history was boring? Well, this set of Cd's will solve that problem. Your children will enjoy learning history while riding in the car or relaxing in the house.

I played one of the Cd's while I cleaned my kitchen. We all got to listen while we did our chores. It was like sitting by the fire and listening to an old fashioned radio program. We loved it!



The Giveaway:

There will be two prize packages:

1. One winner will receive a set of 2 audio Cd's.
2. One winner will receive a set of 2 audio Cd's and a copy of Raising Real Men.

Would you like a chance to win one of these prize packages?
