2013 Summer Contest Giveaway

summer contest

It’s summertime and to celebrate we’re running a super duper contest. In anticipation of the sweltering heat, mosquito bites and your kids setting the house on fire while shooting off fireworks we’ve got three fantastic prize packs to give away. Without further ado, we present to you our summer contest spectacular.

The Prizes



Sponsored by: Easy Student Publishing

IlluStory is an awesome way to encourage your child to use their imagination and create their own stories. Kids write the text and draw the pictures and a few weeks later they receive a real book with them as the author.

The Presidential Game teaches kids how the U.S. electoral college works through a fun competitive boardgame. The mechanics of the game are similar to Risk, but instead of armies you’re fighting over votes. We love this game.

Super Scratch Programming Adventure teaches kids how to make their own video games, while learning the fundamentals of programming. This 160 page book introduces your child to all kinds of programming concepts, such as variables, loops and conditions. This is step one in their journey to becoming a computer scientist.

kids star wars books

These Star Wars short novels are great fun for early elementarians. Follow Dwight and his friends as they survive Middle School and solve the mystery of these odd little paper creations from a galaxy far, far away.

ChineseCUBES is one of the most innovative methods to teaching children a foreign language. We’re giving away the starter kit which contains a webcam, some AR cubes and the software. Your child will be learning Chinese in no time.

Word A Round is a unique game that lets kids master spelling in a competitive setting. The games are short and highly addictive. Simply call out the word you see printed on the round card.

Wonderful Life with the Elements is the oddest book ever written about the periodic table. Each element has been depicted as a unique character. Seriously, this book is one of the strangest kid’s books we’ve ever read.

The Crime Solver Scope is your child’s first step into the world of forensic science. Use the scope and activity guide to fingerprint your friends, magnify dollar bills and solve the latest homicide. We made that last part up, but your little detective will have lots of fun pretending.
