Diana and Friends Experience History Through Music Giveaway- $700+ value!

If you have been hanging around my Facebook page, you knew I had one right?, you may have seen me talking about a new History book series with music.  As a member of the launch team for Experiencing History Through Music I have had the pleasure of seeing these books and listening to the music for several weeks now.

Experiencing History Through Music by Diana Waring is a three book and CD set that includes Western Ho!  Heart of the Old West, Musical Memories of Laura Ingalls Wilder and America- Heart of a New Nation.

I love music!  And my kids love history, so I thought this would be a good combination for us.  I was right!  I have a review going up about all three books and the music included next Friday, but until then I want to give you a chance to enter to win those and more!  This is something you will not want to miss.  Even my mom, who is visiting this week, has been walking around humming the tunes from the Laura Ingalls book.  We have been so inspired by that book in particular that we are purchasing tickets on Groupon (is the timing perfect, or what?) this week to go visit the family homesite in DeSmit, SD!

To celebrate the release of Experience History Through Music, I am joining members of the Diana Waring Launch Team for an amazing giveaway. Friends of Diana have joined in and as you can see, someone's homeschool is going to be greatly blessed!  Here's what you could win!
