We’ll be right back! We’re taking a brief two-week vacation! Blog posts and videos will return Wednesday, July 7th. See you soon!
We are THRILLED to announce the release of our second set of novel versions! For our second novel set, we decided to go with Animal Farm by George Orwell.
COMING SOON: Pontes Books Versions of a New Novel!
NEW PRODUCT: The Prince and the Pauper – Pontes Books Yellow Version Audiobook Now Available
Many people prefer the medium of podcasts to videos, since it allows for more flexibility since you can listen to it while out and about. Even though our Youtube videos tied to our blog entries are pretty short, we are now offering the audio from those videos in podcast format!
We know that one of the most difficult things about buying books from Pontes Books is deciding which version to go with. In order to help with this process, we have partnered with MetaMetrics to determine the Lexile text measures for the original and three bridge versions of The Prince and the Pauper.
Are you intersted in trying out a parallel text without committing to a whole novel? You’re in luck! In addition to continuing to develop our bridge and parallel text versions of Classic novels, we have been working on developing parallel texts for Classic short stories. They have been added to our product page. (Check out our previous blog post outlining methods for reading a parallel text.)
You can really tell a lot about someone by reading through their playlists. This led me to think about what sort of songs might appear on the playlists of our main characters if they were alive today. These playlists span the range of emotions the characters may have felt so far in the story. Enjoy!
How are your grammar skills? Do you remember all your parts of speech? Mad libs are a great way to brush up on some of those skills, while having a little fun. We’ve created a Prince and the Pauper themed mad lib based on Chapter 1 – The Birth of the Prince and the Pauper.
With the start of the new year, it’s always a time where people look to improve themselves, whether they intend on sticking to it or not. For this reason, we felt this would be a good time to explore the best pieces of advice that can be found in The Prince and the Pauper in Chapters 1-7, as well as what we would imagine would be the resolutions for some of the characters at this point in the story.
