Product Description:

Mr. Popper has always been a dreamer. Although he dreams of traveling to exotic places (particularly the polar regions of the North and South Poles), the house painter has never been out of his hometown of Stillwater. Then one day, a package from Antarctica brings him a surprise (in the form of a penguin of course!) that will change his life forever. Follow the Popper family as they grow from a family of four with one pet penguin to a family of four with a dozen show-biz loving penguins. A Newbery Honor book, 160 pgs, pb. ~ Enh

Category Description for Progeny Press Study Guides & Books:

The best way to describe these wonderful books is “literature and Bible study rolled into one.” Truly from a Christian perspective, these classic and award-winning books are examined in the light of God’s Word and a Biblical worldview. The author sent us several review copies and they are wonderful!

Each guide includes:

  • a concise synopsis of the book
  • information about the book’s author
  • background information pertinent to the story
  • suggestions for activities relating to the subject matter
  • introduction of literary terms
  • vocabulary exercises for each section of reading
  • comprehension, analysis, and application questions for each section of reading with discussion of related Biblical themes
  • a complete answer key and suggestions for further reading

Their brochure states “Our goal is to teach students of all ages to examine what they read, Christian or secular, classic or contemporary, and value the truth it contains as measured against the Bible.” A worthy goal indeed! If you want to study great literature from a Christian perspective, here’s your answer! If in doubt, try just one - we’re sure you’ll be back for more!

Progeny Press guides are available in two formats: softcover staplebound booklets and CD-ROMs. The CD-ROMs originally featured printable .pdf files, but Progeny Press is now transitioning these to interactive .pdf files. Inspired by a tax software, these files are able to be used by the student on the computer, or printed out. Questions in the files have text boxes to type in or buttons to select, so you won’t have to print worksheet pages if you don’t want to. Plus, users can grade their answers and leave notes as well! Upper Elementary through High School CD guides are now interactive, while Lower elementary titles are remaining the same, printable but not interactive. All books to accompany study guides are available from us for your convenience.

Please note that a brief synopsis of many of the books included here are provided in our Library Builders section. Study guides for the same book are often available from several publishers, so we found it more efficient to give a description of the book only once.

How many parents would love to hear their children BEGGING to hear one more chapter of a book? Well read this one and experience that for yourselves! My 8 year old and my 6 year old absolutely adore this book and so do I It is original imaginative and so very funny It mixes in some geography history and names of actual explorers with lots of information about penguins It definitely lends itself to a unit study plus it's just plain fun to read! It's a book that should be in every home library
