Weigl Publishers Media Enhanced Books, AV2 Books and
Digital books Review. We received three pdf’s and codes for media enhanced books, Glaciers, A Lion’s World, and There Once Was a Cowpoke Who Swallowed an Ant from Weigl Publishers, that we have been enjoying over the last several weeks! I have to tell you they are very captivating!
Glaciers from the series “Earth’s Water” published under their imprint Lightbox is intended for a grades 3-6. I think the first thing that caught our attention was the colors and all the details about Glaciers!
Daniel and I read through Glaciers and used the media version for a more thorough study of Glaciers. This was so nice as there were so many things to see and do. Links to outside websites like DK Find Out online where you can go and learn about the topic your reading and see all kinds of diagrams and enhance your learning. Also in the enhanced media book are links to learning files you can use to find answers while your learning and you can print them out if you desire to use them. The book itself shows a view where you can easily get back to an area your studying about, this helped us to be able to go back for reference while learning. There are also links to video clips to watch and they are very nice for learning and getting a feel for what it is really like when one of the glaciers decides to melt and come apart. It is just so amazing to watch and learn about them.
We also read A Lions World and There once was a Cowpoke who swallowed an Ant. Although they were a bit below Daniels reading level they were very colorful and entertaining to read. You can also use the feature to allow the books to be read to younger children who are not reading yet or not as fluent in their reading ability.
A Lion’s World belonging to our “EyeDiscover” series, intended for a K-2 interest range. This book was easy to read, full of bright colors that were eye-catching and just all around enjoyable for young children. It also gave a lot of simple but informative information for them to learn from.
There Once Was a Cowpoke Who Swallowed an Ant, a fiction title, intended for a K-2 interest range. It was a fun and humorous story. The illustrations were very colorful and great for young children to enjoy.
We really enjoyed these and you can learn more from this video on using these books for your students! I believe it will really be a fun and enjoyable experience for them.
We hope that you will consider these books for your own child’s reading enjoyment!
