Moscocw, Idaho (PressExposure) May 17, 2008 -- Kerry Beck, author of Raising Leaders, Not Followers, is doing something special to celebrate National Children's Book Week. She is giving away seven classic books in the form of ebooks. As a former school teacher, Kerry loves books and wants to share them with other homeschooling families.
Through her research and own experience, Kerry discovered that classic books are the perfect textbook to teach your children. Classics have enduring lessons that can be applied today in a variety of subject matters.
In her book series, Raising Leaders, Kerry encourages parents to use classic books to mentor their children. Too often children today receive an education similar to the education poor people received hundreds of years ago. Today's popular education model teaches students what to think, instead of how to think for themselves.
Kerry espouses that classics provide the perfect springboard to teach your children how to think on their own. When parents discuss classics with their children, they encourage their children to think through issues, as well as discuss how "old" classics can help us solve today's problems.
For this reason, Kerry is giving away seven classic books with her Raising Leaders package. Some of the classics include Famous Men of the Middle Ages, Heidi, The Story of George Washington, Call of the Wild and other great books.
Beck shares, "National Children's Book Week is the perfect time to remind parents of the importance of reading with their children and discussing what they read. I love books and the lessons in them, so I wanted to celebrate this week by giving away some great books."
