Homeschool Resource Review: Exploring God's Creation Butterfly Lovers Writing Pages and More Super Pack

A few weeks ago Debbie at The Whole Word Publishing contacted me and asked if I'd be willing to review one of their products on CurrClick's website. They gave me the choice of any of their products and they would give it to me free in exchange for my promise to post an honest review on CurrClick's site. So I agreed and after much deliberation (they have a TON of great products), I chose Exploring God's Creation Butterfly Lovers Writing Pages and More Super Pack I thought it sounded like a fun addition to our nature studies and something nice and "spring-like" to take our minds off all the cold weather. I was figuring it would give us enough for a week or two (we have nature studies 2 days a week). So they sent me a coupon code to get the free download.

OH. MY. GOODNESS!!!! This products is totally & completely MIS-NAMED!! This is SO MUCH MORE than a few writing pages!!! This is a 247 page .pdf! We have barely scratched the surface of this! There's information about different kinds of butterflies (that's what we're using right now) but then there is in-depth information about moths, there are coloring pages, there are pages upon pages of clip-art (I expect I'll use that for years to come!) there are the writing pages mentioned in the title. There are pages & pages of information about life cycle and anatomy and geography and . . . there's EXTENSIVE information about planting a butterfly garden (something I'd love to do this spring!) . . . it just goes on and on and on! This pack is a bargain at regular price, but did you notice, right now it's all on sale for $2!!!!!

You seriously CANNOT go wrong buying this pack (though I would guess it would be difficult to download if you have dial-up? Don't know that for sure, just guessing, since it's 247 pages with LOTS of color pictures all through it).

And as if that wasn't enough, The Whole Word Publishing has agreed to give a free copy of this great resource to one of my readers! Just leave a comment on this post by Tuesday, 2/16/10 to enter for a chance to win. Be sure I have a way to contact you, either through your blog or include your e-mail address in your post.

The winner will be given information to e-mail the vendor, who will send them a coupon code to purchase the product for free from CurrClick. The winner will need to register for a (free) account with CurrClick (you want to do this anyway if you're a homeschooler, CurrClick has a free product each WEEK! Just sign up for their newsletter to be notified each Monday, or check their site each Monday for the new week's freebie). Winner will be drawn at random on Wednesday, February 17, 2010. Winner will have 2 days to reply, or a alternate name will be drawn.

It sounds like a great resource! I agree with Sara--I want to check this out whether or not it is free! Though of course I wouldn't complain about winning it either! :D Thanks for your work on your blog. This was my first time on, and I enjoyed brousing through it. Found it through your AHE link.
