Review of Crack The Books Digital Science Books

Posted on: by Kyle | No Comments

We are excited to share two more five star reviews of our Crack The Books series of digital science books.  The first review of Pines to Vines – The Forest Biome was done by Jenn Alcorn.  Her blog, Crazy Speech World, was voted one of the top SLP blogs of 2012.  She does a great job with her reviews.  They are in depth and contain lots of images to help show you what an app is all about.

She says many kind things about Pines to Vines, and includes suggestions on how it can be used in conjunction with common core.

The 2nd review was done by Smatoos, a wonderful website dedicated to all things educational.  Their site has an incredible amount of resources.

Pines to Vines is a state of the art, upper elementary science book based on the forest biome.  Developed in collaboration with Oregon State University’s Department of Forestry and a team of educators, Pines to Vines is a standards based, core curriculum aligned digital science book that covers a variety of topics, including forest layers, range and climate of forest biomes, plant and animal wildlife, adaptations, forest benefits, and forest threats.
