Make learning more enjoyable with Liquid Chalkers!

Disclosure: I received a free product for the purposes of this review. All opinions are honest and reflect my own experiences with the product. 

I am a homeschooling Mom. So my daughter and I do tons of work on the chalkboard. But we also like to have fun ad be creative. We do many things on the chalkboard. We work with the letters of the alphabet, learn new words, have fun with numbers and math... but we also love to draw and doodle. Liquid Chalkers makes all of this even more fun.
We have several different chalkboards and these awesome Liquid Chalkers worked wonderfully on all of them. Easy to wipe off and no dripping or anything. The color is wonderful and it glides on so smoothly. We really had a lot of fun with them.
Like most liquid chalk products, these markers are for non-porous surfaces only. So if your chalkboard has a wooden back, it may not wipe off very easily. So make sure you try a very tiny spot and first and leave it on for awhile, and then try to wipe it off, just to make sure it will wipe off easily. If you do find that the chalkers do not want to wipe away very easily, just try a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser with some water. It should work wonders.

My absolute favorite thing about these Liquid Chalkers is that there is absolutely no chalk dust! That makes me very happy! The color is so bright and bold and it does not smear.
They are so easy to use. You just shake them up a little bit, then press the tip down a few times until the tip is completely saturated and then you start writing! Or creating!
I urge you to check out the awesome Liquid Chalkers from Paper & Twine! You will not be disappointed!

On Wings Of Chaos by Travis Simmons - Book Review, Tour & Giveaway!


On Wings of Chaos (The Revenant Wyrd Saga #5) 

The captivating sequel to A Guardian of Shadows.

In the mystical lands of the Great Realms, Angelica, Jovian, and Joya search for their kidnapped sister, Amber. Their quest has led them through many dangers and revelations, but nothing has prepared them for what’s about to come.

A dream reveals what Angelica and Jovian are, but what does it mean for their future? There’s little time to dwell on this, for the chaos dwarves, the scourge of the Realm of Earth, are gathering at the gates of the Guardian’s Keep. The dwarves have the stone Wyrders’ Bane, and they’ve shown they know how to unleash its plague upon all those who wield the magical force of wyrd. With casters neutralized, a mighty blow has been dealt to the allied forces. The dwarves and trolls attack the keep, and the struggle to survive the war in the north is upon them.

Angelica, Jovian, and Joya’s journey is far from easy, but the future looks even bleaker when visions of a gathering darkness in the west and a congregation of angels could mark the beginning of the final war on the Ever After.

About the Author
Travis has been writing since he was 14.  He began writing a book called "The Calling of the Two" and while writing that on and off he started uncovering another idea.

"Yes, this is all well and good, but what about before? What happened in the world before these characters came into it?" He always knew there was a "before" and as he started wondering about it he got ideas. At first they were little ideas but as he discovered the names for his characters a whole story about them emerged.
Travis started working on The Revenant Wyrd Saga several years back and he is very happy he did because hearing and documenting Jovian and Angelica's story has been one wild ride for him.  He has also written the Infernal Design series.

He lives in a small town at the base of the Adirondack Mountains and hoofing around my neck of the woods gives him a ton of inspiration for his novels.   He loves research, and speculating on different ideas and theories.

Another great installment of the Revenant Wyrd Saga by Travis Simmons. I was very happy that the beginning of the book opened up to the past of the fours siblings; Angelica, Jovian, Joya and Amber. The way that they were born was finally revealed to us in this fifth book. I was so happy to read about more of the past, to see what exactly happened to get us to where we are now in this series.

This book, book 5 in the series, also sees Sara on the mend after it was finally revealed what was making her ill in the first place. Mag is doing her best to make her better. Jovian and Angelica have a dream that finally reveals to them what they truly are, but what does it mean for their future? The hunt for their sister Amber still continues. And the adventures continue, as well.

Travis Simmons has again amazed me with his style of writing. The way that he describes the characters, the settings and all of the realms is truly astounding. He has such creativity in his words. I feel like I am right there with the four siblings, living in this dangerous time with them. I love everything about this series and I cannot wait for the next book.

I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.
