so that you may live long in the land
the LORD your God is giving you.”

Here’s what parents are saying about Father’s Day:
“Shhhhhhhhhhhhh don’t tell my kids this is part of school! Amanda Bennett’s Father’s Day in the Download N Go™ series is filled with crafts and activities for children to try and learn – I love these studies because they go beyond your basic educational learning – they get imprinted in my children’s mind and they take some of the treasured activities and learning in their hearts for the rest of their lives. With the Father’s Day Unit Study, my children will learn just how hard a daddy’s job is to do! Things I loved about this study:
I loved the history behind Father’s Day ~ some things that I don’t think I even knew before!
I also liked that it showed how different people celebrated it ~ whether it was New Zealand, Finland or even my home Canada! As usual there are fabulous activities and celebratory ideas in this book that were so much fun, it was hard to choose what to try! I’m excited and will use this Unit Study for a few years just to get out of it all there is with my children! It was much more fun and a treat than feeling like schoolwork!”

“What a fun and engaging way to learn about Father’s Day! This unit was so much more than I expected. It not only includes the history of Father’s Day but how it is celebrated in several different countries. Every day you and your children will learn about a different father from the Bible. You will spend some time learning about your own history as you interview your dad about his experiences as a child. The lap book components are filled with wonderful pieces that would make a lovely gift for dad. I love that there is also a beautiful way to bless fathers who may be alone on Father’s Day. This unit is packed with fun ideas, recipes and other ways to honor our dads. Thanks Amanda!”

“Who is one person who has made a true impact on your life? One person who you could count on when needed? The hero who supported, loved, and provided for you as a child. This person of course would be your father. And what better way to celebrate a wonderful father than by using the “Father’s Day Download N’ Go” from Amanda Bennett. This unit is a relaxed, fun way to learn more about this holiday that celebrates the wonderful fathers in our lives. With activities and lapbooking components to complete over a week, you will have a treasure that will serve a dual purpose ~ an educational notebook activity and a homemade gift of love that can be given to the special father in your family. Amanda does an intensive study on fathers. From the biblical history to the modern day celebration. Looking at celebrations of fatherhood in other countries and cultures. A complete week of activities complete with a suggested book list, crafts (which would make fine gifts for that special father), and delicious recipes.”
