You can be the winner of an iPod Nano - Find out how!

We are holding a drawing for an iPod Nano and 2 Knowledge Quest gift certificates valued at $150 and you could be one of the winners. Let me tell you how you can have your name entered into our drawing.

Many people who purchase Knowledge Quest products let their friends know about them and often even post a review about them on their blogs. There are many of these reviews all over the internet. However, the pages for our books that are listed on Amazon.com and CBD.com are sadly lacking reviews. There are a small handful of reviews posted there and I am thankful to those readers who have taken the time to post their review, BUT it would be really great if there were more.

This is what I am proposing to do. I would love to give away an iPod Nano and 2 Knowledge Quest gift certificates for $150 to 3 individuals whose names are going to be drawn "out of a hat" so to speak. And to get your name in the hat, all you have to do is post a review of one or more of our books that you have previously purchased and then comment here with a link to your review. That's it. I can't tell you what to write in your review, but I do ask that it be honest and that it be for a book that you have taken the time to read or look through carefully. Please do not post a review about a book that you haven't read or have only glanced at on a book store shelf.

That's it. Post those reviews and then leave your comments here. Don't forget to include the link to your review. And you can review more than one book if you wish. Your name will be entered for EACH review that you post.

Post your reviews by July 31st and we'll hold the drawing on Friday, August 8th. Here are the links to our books on Amazon and CBD:

I would love to participate in this but unfortunately I have not used any of those books. I did however, post a review of Maptangle on Amazon. We love it!

Terri:) I had to post that review! I've never done this before; but I had to brag about a book my children and I love! A Child's Geography: Explore His Earth is a wonderful way to share the world with our children. I'm so glad that I bought this book! I posted a review at Amazon.com and also on my blog http://AdventuresofLearning.blogspot.com

Star Spangled State Book, July 15, 2008
By Bradley A. Foster - See all my reviews


We love this book. Great details on each state. My children love books like these where they can learn facts and interesting pieces of history or information.

This is a great book to have on your shelf for day to day learning

sneaby said...

Terri, Thanks for the great contest. We use your maps all the time! I am just not the type to leave reviews. But I did this time! I would love to be the winner of a gift certificate, because I have really been wanting 2 of your new items: A Child's Geography books. So, they'd be the first thing I'd buy with the $150 gift certificate.

I did leave a review on Amazon, but I don't know how to leave a link back to your website....sorry.

I will post reviews in a couple of days...don't you think it will look a little suspicious to have so many reviews with the same date? Just a thought...

altowoman said...

...forgot to mention reviewed "Wonders of Old" on CBD.com. Can't post link yet until it the review is reviewed by them for content...

I just did my Amazon review for "Explore His Earth". Thanks for doing this drawing... how fun and such a good way to get homeschoolers to review wonderful products!

Be Blessed,

Terri I was happy to review the Geography books and the Wonders of Old book. Lol, I was so hesitant to even let my kids use W of Old because I LOVE it SO much, the feel of the paper, the look of the pages, everything about it. But using it is so much more fun I am glad I gave in. ANyhow, here is a link to my first review
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1932786325/ref=cm_cr_thx_view

coastkids said...

Childs History of the Holy Land- what a great book. I loved it when Ann first wrote it and I love the fact that Terri and KQ has seen how wonderful they are and picked them up. I have enjoyed Anns writings since the early days of my homeschool journey up here in Canada-she is an inspiration and her love of the Lord shines through all she writes. I am thrilled to write a review for her books! Here is the link to the review

coastkids said...

I had to leave reviews for all the KQ books I own, and this was the easiest to write. Gorgeous book, even feels good to hold. Way to go Terri! I am not sure why my links keep getting cut off but you can see the reviews on the product pgs at amazon

This is a great idea! We loved A Child's Geography: Explore His Earth and we left reviews on both Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Childs-Geography-Explore-His-Earth/dp/1932786325/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1216138053&sr=8-1) and CBD. In the past, my CBD reviews have never showed up on the product page, so I have no idea if it will this time.

Thanks for your great products!

Blessings,

I posted a review on the Star Spangled State Workbook. My daughter and I loved this curriculum. It had a lot of interesting facts and we still refer back to it.

I reviewed A Child's Geography: Explore the Holy Land over at CBD as well. However, comments over there must be reviewed, so I don't have a url for it just yet. Hopefully it will show up soon...

MeritK said...

Hey there Teri - It was easy to review the products I have purchased from "Knowledge Quest" - they are the best maps around! I left reviews for you at CBD since I order from them and Amazon stated that I had to have ordered the product from them in order to review it. Sorry not to be able to help you out on Amazon.

The links are not showing up yet at CBD, so I will try to check back and give you links soon.

Here is what I reveiwed;
Star Spangled States Book, Blackline Maps of World history - complete set
Maps of World History - CD

I have more of your products on my wishlist so I will remember to give you a review once I purchase ( or win) them.

Hope this works well for you - God Bless, MeritK

I'll have two more at CBD whenever they are posted. Thanks, Danielle

Kathie said...

Terri

I'm excited too! What a great idea! You've certainly motivated me to FINALLY write my reviews!
Below is a copy of the review I wrote for Amazon & Christian Books.

I've searched high & low for a book that "clicked" for my daughter.
The simple, well organized format and colorful text got her attention.
The precise facts were short & sweet enough for her to remember without long angonizing hours of study. The information encouraged further exploration via library books and internet searches. The word scrambles, game & quizes provided a spiral review which resulted in an A+ final exam. Great for elementary students!

Kathie said...

Kathie gave "Star Spangled States" book & work book 5 STARS!!

The book that "clicked" for my daughter (which I mentioned above in my first comment) LOL is
Star Spangled States. Yippee!

Missy said...

Hi Terri,

I left a comment at CBD for the book titled "What Really Happened During the Middle Ages?" I didn't realize that you were selling your books through CBD. I'm so glad to be able to leave a comment about this book. I think it was done in an excellent way, and our family enjoyed it very much. I enjoyed the book so much that I want to get the one for Colonial days. I would have already bought it if I hadn't already depleted my school fund purchasing curriculum. That book will be on my wanted list until I'm hopefully able to get it. I'm certain it will be as great as the Middle Ages book was.

Blessings,

I have a confession to make. I gotta come clean. I took our new copy of 'What Really Happened in Ancient Times' off the bookshelf to have a five minute skimread before giving it to the children (good mama). Two hours later (ahem), kids were square-eyed in front of the TV and I was utterly engrossed in the captivating adventures in this book. I WILL let the kids read it, honest, just gotta finish my third time reading it first (well, a Mama has to have some treats in life!)

Terri, I just left my first review ever! I did one on Amazon for the blackline maps. Here's the link:

ps- I think this is a terrific way to get some more reviews up there!

I've only read What Really Happened in Colonial Times, I've posted my review on both...

They are both being processed, so I can't post backlinks!

(Nikowa) was used for both of the reviews.

Sarah said...

I left my review at Christianbook because they had the books in stock :) We have really enjoyed A Child's Geography because my kids could spend more time on what they liked best.

Thank you for this opportunity to possibly win, Lord allowing, some of your wonderful resources. I have several of them on my wish list. This is my first review to read but I was HIGHLY motivated by the opportunity to be entered into the drawing for the gift certificates. I reviewed The Shaping of a Nation at CBD's link,
christianbook.com/christian/books/
product? item no=7860829netp

I checked and it did not show up yet but it did tell me I successfully did it.
