This is a non-fiction book believe it or not! There really was a little boy named Samuel Eaton and this book tries to recreate his life as a seven-year-old boy coming over from England to America in 1627. The photos are not cartoon and the book is full of interesting facts. Love this one!
This book is just as the title says, "When to Say 'Yes' and When to Say 'No' ". It's a great book on teaching Biblical boundaries. Jill over at Reflections on Becoming shared this book awhile back and I ordered it that day. So far, the kids adore it!
These "My Favorite Verses" books are fantastic and they use common scriptures to tell a story, along with great illustrations. There are many of them. These are the ones we have...
In a Nutshell:
Am I against Sonlight? NO. There are some wonderful things about this particular curriculum. However, I feel that you can be blessed even more by finding specific literature that fits your family's needs, particuarly each individual child's needs.
I could sit here for hours sharing pictures of my favorite literature, but I won't bore you! :) As our new school year begins in the fall, my goal is to get better at posting what we're covering, along with matching literature. There are so many good books out there, but as parents, we don't always have hours upon hours (uninterrupted!) to sit down on the floor of a library or bookstore and thumb through books. So, if you have great book you've been reading to your little ones, let's see it!
Do share. :)
