We are reading BIG JOHN'S SECRET by Eleanore M. Jewett as a historical fiction read aloud. I LOVE historical fiction.
This has been an excellent year of fruit, regrouping in our home school. We have been able to re-implement a solid read aloud each day that was sorely lacking , not gone completely, the last two years. It has been good for my heart to pour my life into these last two kiddos I have at home. We cherish these memories of reading aloud with all my kids since they were born. So many memories of our boy B, rubbing his hands together in excitement over a climactic event in a great book!
We are studying the Middle Ages, currently. We have really enjoyed this book from the start. It's witty, full of rich historical language and made us laugh from the beginning!
