I mentioned in my strawberry post that when we went to get strawberries at the u-pick we were pleasantly surprised to find out that there were saskatoons ready too! I could not resist picking a pail of saskatoons, but I felt a little guilty about it because our neighbours actually have a saskatoon u-pick, which is only about a mile across the field from where we live! Since the saskatoon farm is so close to where we live I decided we needed another field trip :)
Well, here it is folks! I have been leaving comments all over blog-land about this wonderful book I have been reviewing - Asia: It's People and History. Now, I can finally give you my full review :)
To start off with, I have a confession. I love geography and history! I don't remember being quite so found of these subjects in school, but then again, when I was in school, I was taught very little geography. I think my love for geography began when I was in Bible college. I spent a good part of my Bible college years learning about missions and even thought for awhile that God was going to send me overseas somewhere as a missionary.
For the last couple of weeks Princess and I have been reading through the book Asia: It's People and History. It is a wonderful book and we are learning so much about Asia! Princess is fascinated with China and we have studied a little about China before, but with the help of this book, now we are learning about China's neighbours! We are really enjoying it... But I will have to wait until it's time to do my full review before I tell you anymore about it :) For now, here is a chance for you to win, not only this great book, but a whole lot of other great books too!
As a homeschooler, I have heard the name of Charlotte Mason all over the homeschool world. I have been curious about what the Charlotte Mason method is and have done a little research. What I found out looked interesting, so when I had a chance to review one of Kimberly Garcia's books from the Write From History curriculum, a Charlotte Mason writing program, I decided that this was a good chance to learn a little more about Charlotte Mason and how the Charlotte Mason method would work in our homeschool.
