Library and Educational Services LLC Review

I don't know about you, but at my house, we love books. (Some of us more than others.) We have a lovely set of built in bookshelves in our living room, a 6-foot tall book shelf in the school room, and bookshelves in the bedrooms. The biggest problem we have with our love of books is the lack of funds to buy all the books we want. So when I find an economical resource for purchasing books, it makes me very happy. Needless to say, I was overjoyed to have the opportunity to review Library and Educational Services LLC, a company that sells wholesale books.

For this review, we received:
  • What Are the Summer Olympics? - a 108-page, black-and-white illustrated paperback book by Gail Herman
  • Pride and Prejudice - A dramatized audio theater on cd approximately 73 minutes 
  • Spotlight on American History - a set of 11 hard cover books
As I mentioned above, Library and Educational Services LLC is a wholesale supplier of books that sells to libraries, schools, churches, day cares, and HOME EDUCATORS - that means homeschoolers like you and me can purchase books at a greatly reduced rate! Most homeschooling families I know have fairly tight budgets since they are usually one-income families. This amazing resource allows homeschoolers to satisfy their love of books without killing their budget.

What Are the Summer Olympics? is part of the Who Was? What Was? series. We love these books! This series provides books that are fairly easy reading; my girls have read these as young as 2nd and 3rd grade. A lot of easy reading history books or biographies also water down the content, giving a very meager overview of the topic or person. The Who Was? (biographies) and What Was? (history) books aren't like those; they give a fairly in-depth look at the topic or person. These books are available for just $2.89 each at Library and Educational Services LLC.

Brittany chose and read What Are the Summer Olympics? since it was the middle of our summer track season. The twelve chapters of the book each focus on a different time period in Olympic history, beginning with the ancient games. As the book moves into the modern games, each chapter focus on a decade or two with stories of remarkable athletes, like Betty Robinson who had only competed in three track meets before her 1928 Olympic debut and Wilma Rudolph who overcame having polio as a child to become a gold medal sprinter. The book also describes how politics have affected the Olympics, like Hitler's snubbing of black athletes at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin and the US boycotting the games in Moscow in 1980.

Sometimes reading a book just isn't enough, and it's much more interesting to hear a book via audio theater. Brailey listened to Pride and Prejudice presented by Inspired Imaginations Media. Audio theater books are not the same as audiobooks; they are much, much better. With audio theater, the book is performed by a cast of storytellers, not simply read by a narrator. Here's what Brailey had to say
The Lifehouse Theater version of Pride and Prejudice was quite enjoyable and brought new life to an old classic. The voice acting was good, and each actor fit well with the character he or she was portraying.
The hard cover books offered by Library and Educational Services LLC aren't ordinary hard cover books; these have reinforced library binding, which means they will hold up much better to repeated reading. Brailey had a difficult time choosing what she wanted to get for our review because they offer so many amazing history books. They also offer books in many other categories, including biographies, geography, science, and sports. 

Brailey finally settled on Spotlight on American History. This set of 11 books includes the following titles:
  • The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere: One If By Land, Two If By Sea
  • The Marquis de Lafayette and other International Champions of the American Revolution
  • Benjamin Franklin: Writer, Inventor, and Diplomat
  • Thomas Paine and the Power of Common Sense
  • John Paul Jones and the Birth of the American Navy
  • Crispus Attucks and African American Patriots of the American Revolution
  • The United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights: The Law of the Land
  • The Declaration of Independence and the Continental Congress
  • The Boston Tea Party: No Taxation Without Representation
  • The Battles of Lexington and Concord: First Shots of the American Revolution
  • George Washington: America's History Maker
These definitely fulfilled Brailey's thirst for knowledge about American history. I'll quote her here:
I enjoyed this review. I really liked the selection of books we were give to choose from and had a hard time choosing which set to get. I chose a collection of books on the Revolutionary War period of the United States because I am intrigued by that time period of our history.
