Story Surprise Review

Whether you homeschool or not, reading to children every day is important.  Reading the same book(s) every day does not expose the child to new vocabulary, and children love to get mail.  With this concept in mind I’d like to share our experience with Story Surprise, a book subscription for children.

Asleep on the Hay Review & $25 Giveaway Ends 12/30/15

Asleep on the HayAsleep on the Hay: A Dust Bowl Christmas by Ben Sowards

It’s Christmas Eve when a knock comes at the door of Paul’s family farmhouse. A small family is stranded due to a broken-down truck and seeks shelter for the evening. Paul’s grandfather not only welcomes them in, but offers them dinner and a bed for the night. Even though it is a season of giving, Paul’s heart is not filled with charity. It’s the height of the Dust Bowl and food is scarce. Why should he share what little he has with strangers? Worse, in order to help the sick baby, Paul will have to sell his beloved calf to buy a part to fix the truck.

The family offers Paul food and shelter and warmth—extending to him the love and charity he lacks and teaching him of the true meaning of Christmas. Read more [+]
