The girls and I have just finished reading The Secret Garden and it was absolutely delightful! I think we have all dreamed, at some point in our lives, to discover something magical like a hidden garden or as mysterious as sounds in an old, dreary mansion like Misselthwaite Manor. We are looking forward to watching the movie and seeing the secret garden for ourselves!
We just started reading Farmer Boy yesterday. This book tells the story of Laura Ingalls Wilder's husband, Almonzo, when he was a child. It is wonderful! We will be using The Prairie Primer as we read this book. The Prairie Primer is a fabulous home school resource that really helps children learn and retain what they have read. It is a study guide for all the books by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
