We’re excited to announce the publication of the last set of books in the Adventures on the American Frontier collection: “Brave Men of Early Texas.” This set of books chronicles the colorful and tumultuous history of Texas, from the first European explorers to set foot on it through to the battle of the Alamo, a tragic tale that is the embodiment of the American spirit.
We all know some basic facts about George Washington. But did you know that as a young man, he experienced a treacherous journey through frozen wilderness to report information about the French resistance to British control? This story and others like it are what kids will learn from our newest Adventures on the American Frontier set of books: “Westward Over the Blue Ridge Mountains.”
We are excited to reintroduce the Problemoids mathematical reasoning books for children in grades 4, 5, and 6! These books give children an opportunity to put on their thinking caps to try to figure out the solutions to challenging problems in mathematics, mathematical reasoning, and basic logic.
We’ve been reviewing our novels lately, and three of them stand out as some of the best books we’ve published. These novels are truly among the most beautifully written, most profoundly moving stories we’ve ever read. So even though they haven’t been out for all that long, we decided to polish them up and reissue them for summer reading.
We’re pleased to release our newest set of books in the Adventures on the American Frontier series: “Resolute Men of the Illinois Country.” The Illinois Country is a vast region in what is now the Midwestern United States. Even before they knew what the rest of the New World had to offer, early explorers knew that the Illinois Country held a wealth of promise and opportunity.
We’ve done it again! We’re delighted and honored to announce that we have won a Best Middle & High School Homeschool Curriculum & Resources award from howtohomeschool.net for the third consecutive year. With hundreds of nominations and rigorous criteria to win, we’re grateful for this recognition.
By all accounts, the movie “The Revenant” was a box office hit. It has been described as “gripping,” “intense,” and “gorgeous,” but also “mature,” “tense,” and “violent” (it’s rated R), which makes it a great movie for adults but not so much for children. But now we’re offering a version of that story appropriate for middle school-age kids in our newest American history series: “Following the Frontier West.”
We’re producing the entire MCT curriculum as digital eBooks on the Kindle platform! And we won’t be stopping there. We’ll be converting many of our titles to eBooks to give you the option of using our print books, digital books, or any combination that works for you. This is part of a major digital overhaul that Royal Fireworks Press is undertaking that includes a brand new, redesigned website.
We are pleased to offer a fresh new version of “Amazing Ants,” a book for both students and their teachers or parents. The book is part textbook, part research notebook, and it introduces readers to ants in a way that reveals their immense value as a venue through which students can learn the scientific process.
“Nature Study for the Whole Family,” the award-winning book by naturalist and instructor (and homeschooling mother of two) Laurel Dodge, is a beautifully written guide to helping your family make the most out of natural spaces, whether tiny backyard or vast national park. And now we are proud to offer a new, updated version of this exquisite book.
“What I came to grasp as my years studying under Asa Briggs went by was how much more than excellence in the writing of history he had to impart. Much of his thinking is reflected in the books that Royal Fireworks produces—books that expect students to expand their horizons.” – Dr. T.M. Kemnitz
In the 1990s, artist Frederick Franck created two series of images: one a retelling of the Way of the Cross and the other of the parable of the oxherd. Those images were translated into stained glass panels and installed in a building that Franck had specially built. We are pleased to offer an updated edition of the book “The Tao of the Cross and the Oxherding Parable,” which Franck wrote to explain his story behind those images.
We are pleased to offer a revised edition of a historical fiction novel about Alexander the Great: “Taking Control.” This novel is packed with facts about one of the greatest leaders who ever lived in human history, but children will be so absorbed with the story that they’ll miss the fact that they’re actually getting a detailed history lesson as they read it.
We are pleased to reissue an updated and revised edition of a math book for parents that will make learning math fun for young children: “Educational Play: Math Games and Activities for Your Child.” The book is chock full of ways to make math both relevant to the real world and fun.
