Literature: "Little House on the Prairie" by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Again, these are family favorites! Matthias asked me today if we could buy a wagon and some horses to go on a trip. I mentioned how our move from Ohio to Georgia was kinda like what the Ingalls' family had done. He thought traveling in a wagon would have been more fun! :)
History: "The Door in the Wall" by Marguerite de Angeli. This has been very good so far! If you are studying the Middle Ages and/or monasteries, read this book!
Eric's Read-Aloud: "Created for Work" by Bob Schultz. This book "provides practical insights for young men. .. to teach young men (and boys) what it means to be good workers." Eric has been reading this aloud to all of us and even us girls are learning. ;) We are about 1/3 of the way through it so far. Each chapter ends with questions for discussion and our time together discussing & praying over these topics has been a blessing. Excellent!
Circle Time: "Boys & girls Playing" by J.C. Ryle. I bought this book this past April at the homeschool convention. J.C. Ryle is one of my favorite author's to ready- always so encouraging while you are completely convicted. ;) We have been reading about one chapter per week- taking a small part to read, discuss & pray over during our Circle Time in the mornings. While I've had a few theological differences w/ Ryle, I would still recommend this one to anyone with children- it will encourage their faith in our Lord. Oh, and I'd recommend Reformation Heritage Books too... even if they are from Michigan.
