Z-Guide To The Movies: Driving Miss Daisy - a TOS Crew Review

PhotobucketI love this company and the Z-Guides to the movies that they publish!  Watching movies as part of our homeschooling is something I really love to add into our curriculum and these Z-Guides hit the spot!  Last year, we watched To Kill A Mockingbird and used the Z-Guide to help in our studies.  So this year, when I was once again given the opportunity to review a Z-Guide to the movies, I was excited and chose Driving Miss Daisy.  I thought that it would be an interesting movie for my teens to watch and would also go along with the time period we have been studying in history.

Zeezok Publishing has Z-Guides to the movies for many different movies, both old and newer ones.  All of these movies are very educational, yet fun and interesting!  The Z-Guide begins with a Topic Overview and Movie Synopsis.  I have found that my kids DO NOT want me to read the Movie Synopsis prior to watching - spoils the movie for them!  Then there are Movie Review Questions, as well as questions that delve into the topic behind the movie.  There are 10 different Activities in all, encompassing things such as art, word search, and other topics relevant to the particular movie.  For instance, for Driving Miss Daisy, there are a lot of questions and activities relating to Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement, as well as discrimination and in-laws relationships.

The Z-Guides sell for $12.99 and you can see the whole list of titles available on their website at  They also have all the movies for sale as well, just in case you have difficulty finding any of them either at your local library or on Netflix, Redbox, etc.

I received this product for free in return for an honest review. I have not received financial reimbursement for my review of Z-Guide to the movies: Driving Miss Daisy from Zeezok Publishing.
