  1. Hello Hive, Well-Trained Mind Press is in the early stages of revising the book-lists (fiction and non-fiction) in the Activity Book of "The Story of the World, Volume 3." We'll be adding new titles that have come out in the past 15 years (or titles that we missed the first time around!), and deleting some that are so thoroughly out of print that no parent could be expected to find them. We have a plan for doing it that we think will provide a variety of parental viewpoints, and keep any one contributor from getting stuck with too much work. We've divided the book into sections (chapters 1-7, 8-14, etc). Each section would pay a little differently, based on how many books we need to find (you'll notice that some sections need a lot more work than others do). Each contributor can do one, two, or three sections, but no more (to spread the work around). Each section will end up being a combination of the work of two contributors plus our editors. Time Frame: We will ask you to submit a sample list from a particular chapter, to evaluate your abilities. Your full booklists would be due by mid-to-late January of 2019. Here's what we consider a "successfully found" book:- age appropriate - period appropriate - in print (we make occasional exceptions if it's REALLY good) - available in physical form (you can make 1 fiction exception and 1 nonfiction exception per chapter...kindle, etc...but not more than that) - relatively easy to find - write a one-sentence summary like we did in the first edition We will provide a PDF of the original booklist, and a PDF of the actual textbook; we have gone through and crossed out the out-of-print ones or ones we want to delete, and we'll tell you how many fiction and nonfiction books are now needed for each chapter (it's usually between 2 and 8 books needed from each genre). If this interests you, and you feel you could do a good job with it, please contact Justin Moore (justin@welltrainedmind.com) for further information.
  2. Hi all, While supplies last, we're offering VERY LIGHTLY scratched/scuffed books from Well-Trained Mind Press for 60% off the cover price! We have The Story of the World (activity books, textbooks, and tests), First Language Lessons, Writing With Ease, Writing With Skill, The Creative Writer, Telling God's Story, and many more. These books (which, honestly, aren't very scratched, and just look like they'll look once your children have them for a few weeks anyway) are only available through our office, not our website, so call 1.877.322.3445 to find out what's available and to make your purchase. Justin from Well-Trained Mind Press
  3. Hi all, We just wanted to let you know that from June 8th through June 30th, prices are cut by 25% on all PDFs and MP3s at www.peacehillpress.com. That includes our popular "Story of the World" audiobooks, as well as PDF textbooks, Jim Weiss's MP3 storybooks, and practical/inspirational workshops by Susan Wise Bauer and Jessie Wise. Enjoy!
  4. Hello all, Peace Hill Press is excited to enter the world of math books, with "Preschool Math at Home: Simple Activities to Build the Best Possible Foundation for Your Child," by Kate Snow, of the "Kate's Homeschool Math Help" blog. It is now available in paperback or as a PDF, for a special introductory price. Check it out! Justin from Peace Hill Press
  5. Hi there, forum folks! We at Peace Hill Press wanted to remind you that all through January, we have dropped the prices on our "Who in the World?" biographies by 20 percent! This applies to all formats: the books, the PDF downloads, and the audio versions read by Jim Weiss (in both MP3 and CD versions). And, if you buy all four biographies at once (The Secretive Printer, the Unready King, the Acrobatic Empress, and the Forgotten Explorer), you'll save 30% off the cover price! Browse them here.
  6. Throughout December, Peace Hill Press is rolling out a variety of sales...free items, low prices, and a partridge in a pear tree. Check out the dates and the savings at http://peacehillpress.com/current-offers/
  7. Well-Trained Mind Community, We are excited to announce that beloved storyteller Jim Weiss has joined Peace Hill Press! Here is a letter from Susan Wise Bauer with more details: All of us at Peace Hill Press are absolutely delighted that Jim Weiss has chosen us to carry on with the publication of his award-winning and much-loved stories. Jim and Randy have been my friends since we first started running into each other at home education conferences, over a decade ago. We’ve shared our meals, our homes, our stories about our kids, our frustrations, and our creative hopes with each other. My four children (the oldest is now twenty-three!) grew up with Jim’s stories; in fact, I once had Jim’s voice on my answering machine saying “Hello, Bauers!” for months because he called and left a message, and the boys wouldn’t let me erase it. My youngest daughter, now fourteen, still falls asleep with Sweet Dreams and Good Night after a tough day. When Jim recorded the Story of the World series for us, our friendship became a professional relationship. And that professional relationship has now taken on a new dimension. By publishing, selling, and promoting Jim’s work, we’ll be opening up a space for him to do even more storytelling. We’re going to take on the burden of the business side of his operation so that his creative side can be set free! Jim is looking forward to creating new stories every year for Peace Hill Press, and we can’t wait to bring those recordings to you. For the latest and greatest news about what Jim’s up to (teaser: it won’t just be audio CDs!), please consider signing up for Peace Hill Press’s email notification list. Visit peacehillpress.com. We’ll never spam you. We’ll just let you know what wonderful things Jim’s working on! Susan (Note from Justin: Visit peacehillpress.com/jim-weiss to see the titles we're now offering. For a limited time, you can enter the code JIMWEISS at checkout to save 10% on your order.)
  8. So you're starting school next week, and you just realized that you forgot to order textbooks. Should you panic? No! (Well, not about this, anyway. Feel free to panic about other things.) Instead of panicking, rejoice! Your procrastination has paid off. For a limited time, just about everything on our website is 15% off. It's our "last minute panic sale." You're welcome.
  9. Hello all, We've just sent "The Study & Teaching Guide for the History of the Medieval World" to the printer, and it should be available in a month. But if you can't wait that long, you can purchase it right now as a downloadable PDF! This is our largest book ever (888 pages), filled with exercises to supplement your high school student's reading of Susan Wise Bauer's "The History of the Medieval World": ID questions, essay prompts, maps and map exercises, and more. Complete answers and explanations are provided, for the teacher, as well as suggestions for helping with essays and for grading the student's work. It's at a special introductory price for now, but that will only last for a few weeks, so check it out soon!
  10. Hi y'all, We just received a truckload of our own books that can't be sold in bookstores, since they have tiny dings, bends, or scratches on them (the content is unaffected). So we're selling them for 60% off the cover price. Writing With Ease, Story of the World, First Language Lessons, Writing With Skill, The Top-Secret Guide to Getting Your In-Laws to Stop Nagging You About Your Homeschooling Choices, and more! Ok, one of those may have been a joke. The books are at our office, not our warehouse, so you'll need to purchase them by phone. Call 1.877.322.3445 to find out what's available, and to buy! Justin from Peace Hill Press
  11. Hi all, The instructor book and the student book for Writing With Skill, Level 3 are now available as PDF products on our webstore. The physical books are being printed right now, and will soon be shipping to our warehouse. Enjoy! Justin from Peace Hill Press
  12. Hi all, I knew you'd want to know that we're offering two brand-new audio lectures by Susan Wise Bauer, recorded at homeschooling conferences: Burning Out: Why it Happens and What to do About it Every home school family finds itself in the doldrums occasionally. But when the doldrums last for weeks or months, it’s time to consider the possibility of burnout. In this seminar--drawn from years of personal experience with effective home education and burnout--Susan defines burnout, investigates the elements that make burnout more likely, and offers a series of practical, experience-tested suggestions for moving forward. and What is History? How and Why Should I Teach It? Choosing the right program isn’t the first step in teaching history to your students. Before you can make informed decisions about what curricula to use, you need to understand why you’re teaching history at all--and define what your student should be gaining from it. This seminar will explain what history actually is (you might be surprised!), survey different methods and approaches for teaching, and suggest appropriate goals for elementary, middle-grade, and high school students. Both are now available as MP3 downloads, along with all of our other lectures.
  13. Hi y'all, Just a quick note that we have posted free samples of "Writing With Skill, Level 3 Instructor Text" and "Writing With Skill, Level 3 Student Workbook" on the Peace Hill Press samples page. For each book, the sample contains the Table of Contents, the first ten weeks of lessons, and any appendices that are relevant to those lessons. We are getting ready to hand these books to the printer, and expect to have copies for sale within the next two months. Peace Hill Press will have it first, then Amazon and Barnes & Noble. I'll announce availability here, and Peace Hill Press will also update you through its Facebook and Twitter pages. Thanks for your patience. Enjoy! Justin from Peace Hill Press
  14. Hey y'all, Just a quick reminder that Peace Hill Press has lowered its prices by 20% on nearly everything in the store...and we've lowered the prices on our already-discounted "School in a Box" kits by 10%. No need to enter coupon codes, etc; the prices are already cut. This sale continues through Monday at noon Eastern time. Justin at PHP
  15. Folks, It's July and there's nothing good on TV, and we're bored, and we have so many stacks of lightly-scratched-and-dented copies of Writing With Ease workbooks (and a few other things) sitting in the office that we've got no room for our normal squirtgun wars. So in desperation, we're selling these books at 60% off the cover price. Orders over $50 will get free shipping. Call us and save a ridiculous amount of money on your back-to-school shopping: 1.877.322.3445.
  16. The third instructor book in our Telling God's Story series is now available on our webstore, in both bound and PDF form. It is also available for pre-order on Amazon, but we have not yet been told when they'll ship theirs. If you order directly from us, we'll ship it right away. Our new author, Rachel Marie Stone, has done a great job in continuing the pattern that Peter Enns set up. We think you and your children will love her style. The Activity Book is nearly complete, and should be available by this coming fall.
  17. Hi all, The Study and Teaching Guide for the History of the Ancient World is now available for purchase on our site. Amazon should be shipping the book soon, too (it takes a bit longer to complete their warehouse process). Quick Description... Susan Wise Bauer's "The History of the Ancient World" is widely used in advanced high-school history classes, as well as by home educating parents. This Study and Teaching Guide, designed for use by both parents and teachers, provides a full curriculum with study questions and answers, critical thinking assignments, essay topics, instructor rubrics, and test forms. Explanations for answers and teaching tips are also included. Designed by historian and teacher Julia Kaziewicz, in cooperation with Susan Wise Bauer, makes "The History of the Ancient World" more accessible to parents & teachers. Note, since some folks had asked: The first half of the book is for the instructor. The student's pages, in the back half, are perforated. SAMPLES of the curriculum can be found on this page. Justin from Peace Hill Press
  18. Some of you may know that I own a bed & breakfast on a corner of Peace Hill Farm. It's a lovely old farmhouse, the rooms are beautiful, and the hosts are welcoming (and amazingly good cooks). It's very family-friendly but we've just opened up an even more family-friendly option: the Publisher's Cottage. It sleeps up to 6 people easily, more with just a little bit of shoehorning. There's a washer/dryer and full kitchen. We're a 25-minute drive from Williamsburg and the Historic Triangle, 50 minutes from historic Richmond, and just minutes away from the colonial plantations along Route 5 in Charles City. Plus you can visit my sheep and feed apples to Max the Giant Draft Horse. Here's the B&B site: http://peacehillbb.com/ and the Publisher's Cottage page in particular: http://peacehillbb.com/rooms-publishers-cottage.php OK, commercial over. Thanks for being part of the boards and Peace Hill Press (the B&B business helps to support the work of the Press). SWB P.S. Book before Christmas, tell the hosts you saw this post on the WTM Forums, and get a 10% discount.
  19. Hi all, We've sent the "Study & Teaching Guide for the History of the Ancient World" to the printers, but while we're waiting for the physical book, we've now started selling it as a downloadable PDF, here. Remember, you can see a sample on this page. For each chapter of Susan Wise Bauer's "The History of the Ancient World" he Study & Teaching Guide provides review questions and answers, ID's, map exercises, essay prompts and tips for helping the student think critically about the history presented in the chapter.
  20. Peace Hill Press is proud to announce that Writing With Skill, Level 2, as well as its accompanying workbook, are now available for purchase on our webstore. The books are in our warehouse, just waiting for you and your young writer! Instructor Text: http://www.peacehillpress.com/writing/the-complete-writer-writing-with-skill-level-2-instructor-text/ Student Text: http://www.peacehillpress.com/writing/the-complete-writer-writing-with-skill-level-2-student-workbook/ Remember that samples are available at: http://www.peacehillpress.com/samples.html If you pre-ordered, we called you last week to complete your order, and the books are on their way to you. Amazon should have the books very soon (they work on their own timetable, which they don't always share with us, and which we think has something to do with the movements of the tides, Pisces being in the Seventh House, and the entrails of pigeons). Other bookstores and retailers will be getting the books in the next week or two. I'll try to stick around this thread to answer questions. Thanks for your patience. We think you're going to love the books.
  21. We've just posted the first five instructor and first five student sections from "Study and Teaching Guide for The History of the Ancient World," coming next month from Peace Hill Press. Susan Wise Bauer's "The History of the Ancient World" is widely used in advanced high-school history classes, as well as by home educating parents. This Study and Teaching Guide, designed for use by both parents and teachers, provides a full curriculum with study questions and answers, critical thinking assignments, essay topics, instructor rubrics, and test forms. Explanations for answers and teaching tips are also included. Designed by historian and teacher Julia Kaziewicz, in cooperation with Susan Wise Bauer, makes "The History of the Ancient World" more accessible to parents & teachers. We'll answer your questions on this thread, if you have any.
  22. Hi all! The first ten weeks of Writing With Skill, Level 2 Instructor Text and Writing With Skill, Level 2 Student Text are now available as free PDF downloads here. That's over 400 pages of educational awesomeness. Remember, you can also pre-order these books from us by emailing info AT peacehillpress DOT com.
  23. UPDATE on Writing With Skill, Level Two: We're happy to announce that this weekend we're sending Writing With Skill, Level Two (Instructor Text) and Writing With Skill, Level Two (Student Text) to the printers. We expect to be shipping books to customers by early September (possibly earlier than that, but we don't want to raise unrealistic hopes). The books are going to be fantastic. Also, huge: 632 pages for the Instructor text and 504 for the Student text. We should market them as bicep-training. In anticipation of their release... 1. On Monday, August 5th, we will make available the first TEN WEEKS of the Student and Instructor texts, as a free downloadable PDF (it will also include the Table of Contents and Introduction, so you can get a good idea of where the year's curriculum is going). 2.

  24. Hello all, From now until Mother's Day, we're discounting our book of honest-poetry-for-mothers-of-small-children, "What it Is is Beautiful," down to $4.99 on our webstore. This book makes a wonderful gift for a young mother. It's not poetry about sunsets and flowers (mostly). It's about minivans and cracker-crumbs and secretly wishing your family was like the shiny families in commercials. Readers describe it like this: "Her poetry is not the kind of poetry that is hard to understand or tries to be too smart for its own good - instead, it's full of relatable language and common experiences to which every parent reading will be able to nod in agreement, or chuckle, or weep with gratitude that someone else has been through what you're going through." "Tender, funny, life-giving." "Her poems are so accessible and relatable, and they read like a shot of pure grace." Find out more, read samples, and order the book here.
  25. Announcing a brand new comic from Olive Branch Books! The Parables of Jesus: A Graphic Novel Translation by Earnest Graham A hurricane howls towards a house built on sand. A nighttime intruder creeps onto enemy land. A boy leaves home to seek adventure. Robbers menace a lonely traveler. And the unexpected happens. This new and innovative graphic novel translation of the parables of Jesus puts a modern twist on an ancient art form: stories that begin with mundane events and end with a glimpse of a deeper reality. Earnest Graham’s illustrations, ranging in style from West African kente and Japanese prints to vivid modern realism, interpret these well-loved stories for the next generation of readers. See samples, and purchase the book here (available now!), or pre-order from Amazon here (available April 20). About the Author: The Rev. Earnest Graham is an illustrator and a pastor, and author of James: A Letter to the Scattered (also available from Olive Branch Books). He and his family live in Virginia.
