Purpose of this Blog...

You may have noticed that not all books are equal in capturing children's imaginations and in cultivating those innocent, tender souls. My goal is to help you find the ones that do!

  1. Thank God for those brave men. Right now, in our homeschooling lessons, we are studying the Spanish colony of Venezuela, how they desired to be independent, as America was or English rule! Freedom is valuable, but does come at a cost. ♥

  2. There have been ceremonies here in our little town, around our War Memorial. So many names for such a small place.
