Sacagawea {an interactive e-book review}

Knowledge Quest is a fairly well know company in homeschool circles.  They are most well known for the vast variety of maps and history resources they offer.  We were lucky enough to be able to use a new product. We received Sacagawea (Brave Explorers Every Child Should Know) Complete PDF e-book.  Ages 10+ ($4.97) Written by Karla Atkins.

Now this isn’t just any old e-book about Sacagawea. This 4 part series has been put together to make one complete book.  The book takes you through the beginning of Sacagawea’s life to her death. This book has interactive links, clear throughout the book.  Many words take you to great websites or pictures or even just descriptions.  This created rabbit trails for us and left my children wanting to know more. 

This 16 chapter book is 112 pages long in iBooks.  The interactive-ness of this book has made it so it has taken us a lot longer to get through then regular books. We only clicked on links that interested us.  It was very convenient to have them there. 

My family did enjoy this book, including my 8 year old.
