Weekend Giveaway: Peace Hill Press

This giveaway has ended. Thanks for entering!

Today I have another Peace Hill Press giveaway heading your direction–this time for 4th grade!

Learn more about Peace Hill Press:

“Most educational presses are run by large, international companies. Not us. We’re a small company; we want to stay that way. When you call our office, you don’t get a phone tree; you get to talk to us directly.

Our books aren’t written by committee; they’re produced by a small group of dedicated, skilled writers who have training, experience, and (in most cases) multiple graduate degrees.

Our materials provide parents with a rare combination of academic rigor and ease of use. We are proud to say that our materials are the best books available for teaching history and language arts that we have seen. We’re also proud that as we come out with more and more products, they keep getting better and better.”

Today’s winner will receive the fourth grade essentials package (pictured above), which includes the following:

  • Story of the World Volume 4: The Modern Age
  • Story of the World Volume 4: Activity Book
  • Writing With Ease Instructor Text
  • Writing With Ease Workbook Level 4
  • First Language Lessons Level 4 Instructor Text
  • First Language Lessons Level 4 Student Workbook

How to Win

  4. I have used many of their books. Excellent resource!
