Salem Ridge Press Review

Today is my birthday and I don’t think I could be more pleased to introduce you to
Salem Ridge Press
A re-printer of many fine old books, mainly selections from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. This company is one of my favorites to buy living books from. We use Charlotte Mason methods here at Miskatonic Prep and they always have the perfect books for our needs.
Salem Ridge Press was founded by homeschool graduate, Daniel Mills. He has founded this company on the principle outlined in Philippians 4:8, what we read matters and what we put into our minds forms our character and ideals. Though not all selections are specifically Christian all have strong moral values and encourage positive character development.
I received 3 books, 1 soft cover and 2 eBooks, to review. Most books are available in either soft cover or hardbound editions. I was thrilled to be able to physically handle Out of the Mouth of Lions by Emma Leslie. The cover was wholesome and not too thin like some paper backs I own. I especially liked the little extras found in the illustrations and definitions at the bottom of each page introducing ne words to the readers.The copy itself was in pristine condition and in a very pleasing easy to read font.  It is a wonderful story of perseverance through adversity, persecution, and trial. A great example of the long-suffering character we should achieve.

Math Tutor DVD Review

1-877-MATH-DVD (6284-383)
Pre-Algebra I
My older son was helping with this review and while we were optimistic it really fell flat. I really enjoyed the brush up on Pre-Algebra myself, my son however has just finished it. Here is what he had to say about the Pre-Algebra I tutor DVD:

  • The first 8 1/2 minutes is an intro and it was spoken very quickly, I got bored with it.

  • Lesson 1 on Real Numbers- very dry but thorough, lecture no exercises. I found it difficult to stay focused on the audio. Now this is just my son for the most part. I believe, for all of those who are strong auditory learners this will work very well. I know my son and he is very hands on just like his mom, lol! If we had a couple of exercises to do during the lessons it would have made it a huge hit!
    They do have a worksheet CD for $24.99 for Basic, Algebra I, and Algebra II math available. All DVD’s include a 100% money back guarantee to raise your student’s grades.

    Easy Meal Planning

    I am in love! I have stumbled across a wonderful site that not only plans your meals but plans your grocery shopping too. The best part is the sales are already matched up for your store. If you are like us and have recently taken a hit in the pocketbook this will be a lifesaver for you.


    It only costs $15 every 3 months and to me that is worth it. I spend so much time either trying to decide what to make or trying to find the cheapest stuff in the store. I usually end up getting take out which is not at all cheap or healthy. Not to mention I am not being a very good helpmeet or mother.

    I really hope this website is as much a blessing to your family as it has been to mine.

    Time 4 Writing

    Time 4 Writing is an online, subscription based, Instructor lead writing courses divided into 3 grade levels. Each grade level is further broken down into Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced courses. On each Grade Level page there is a explanation for each course.The multiple courses for each level allows you to really focus on specific needs.
    We chose the course ES- ES1-Sentence Structure for my DS8. It is a good fit for him as he is new to typing and still learning how to properly construct more complex sentences. I really enjoyed our use of this program. It uses short, fun lessons which my son really liked.
