Our Draw the Natural Wonders of the world series is moving along. Two books have been published (USA and Europe), two are nearly finished (Africa and Canada) and there are five more to go (Asia I & II, Oceania, Mexico – Central & South America and The World). The latter book, Draw the Natural Wonders of the World will also include Antarctica.
Newest Series: Literature
Our newest series, Literature Disguised as Fun, will open with seven standalone books. Each book will have the full, unabridged short-story, essay or novel along with additional materials to help your students learn how to think about what they are reading and also learn about the authors of these great, classic works in a fun and entertaining way. Each book will contain:
- Brief Introduction
- Pre-Flight: Some things to think about before reading.
- Author Photo, Portrait
- The unabridged short story, essay or novel
- Socratic discussion questions
- Wrap-Up: Some things to think about after reading.
- Author Bio: This is a short, creative bio where Mr. Draeger uses his time machine (H.G.), space craft (Lem One) or other methods to meet the authors face-to-face (in most cases).
- Quotes by the author
- Additional reading
- Cartoons and memes that pertain to the work
