Homeschoolers will want to take advantage of this offer to stock up on high-quality reading materials for both summer reading and the upcoming school year.
The June discount is available only at bjupresshomeschool.com. The discount applies to JourneyForth novels, youth Bible studies, and youth nonfiction titles. It does not apply to titles within the JourneyForth adult line. The JourneyForth special runs the entire month of June.
JourneyForth, a division of BJU Press, produces excellent, trustworthy novels, Christian biographies, informational books, audiobooks, and ancillary materials for readers, preschool through high school; it also produces adult titles on Christian living, Bible study, and resources for pastors and educators.
One excellent way to use the JourneyForth summer discount is to stock up on novels for this year’s Summer Reading Program. The program encourages children to set daily reading goals and track those goals, using progress tracking sheets with fun designs. BJU Press and JourneyForth designed the program to be flexible enough to encourage even the most reluctant reader. It is their goal that the program foster a love of reading during a time when children normally regress in their reading skills. By encouraging regular reading, by helping children discover reading material that interests them, and by offering prizes for motivation, the reading program offers parents a valuable tool for summer reading. BJU Press is offering several prizes for children who complete the program, including the grand prize of a Kindle Fire loaded with $50 of JourneyForth Kindle titles. The package of free titles, will be age appropriate for the winner and could include popular titles such as The Silent, Gunner's Run, Mice of the Herring Bone, and Sarah Whitcher's Story” Details are at bjupresshomeschool.com.
“It is a documented fact that students can lose academic ground during the summer months, especially in reading,” says Nancy Lohr, the chief editor for JourneyForth Books. “We hope that this program will be happily manageable for each reader as well as profitable as reading skills are strengthened and children enjoy a wide range of books over the course of the summer.”
BJU Press exists to encourage Christian character in students and promote academic excellence through the provision of K4–grade 12 educational materials and support services. In addition to textbooks and materials, we offer homeschool testing services, distance-learning programs, and other homeschool resources.
