TOS Review ~ Progeny Press (Interactive Literature Guide)

Need something a little different for Literature? Want to mix it up a bit? Need a break from your current curriculum or need something between curriculums? These Study Guides are not a Literature curriculum in and of themselves but they are a GREAT resource to add to your current curriculum.
Progeny Press has over 100 Literature Guides available in printed, CD (PDF) and email PDF versions.
We had the opportunity to review the email PDF interactive version of Across Five Aprils.
~Student can type right into the PDF and save it OR it can be printed
~Parent/Teacher can also edit and correct/comment within the study guide
~Christian Based
~Price is good if you can use them with multiple children
~Comprehensive (6-10 weeks of activities)
~All you need it the guide, a dictionary, thesaurus and a Bible (they use the NIV but any Bible version will do...the wording will just be different)
~Included with the interactive PDF guide is a how-to-use guide (very helpful)
~Answer Key included
~MAC and PC compatible
~New Interactive version on all guides grades 4-12

~cost a little more than I would like to spend (especially if you want to do more than 1-2 year)

My Thoughts
I LOVE the interactive format, it saves paper, printing and ink costs and doesn't take up any space on my shelves. I love that it can be saved for each child and that I can correct/edit in the same document! While it is a little pricy for me to consider as my sole curriculum I love the idea of using 1-2 of the Literature Guides per year to mix things up a bit!
