There are many others...what are some of your favorites?
As a classical homeschooler, I'm knee-deep in read-alouds! I'm not a decorate for every single holiday type of gal, so this is hard for me.
We do make cookies and other holiday type things, we love singing carols. I need to find an advent book for kids. Yes! That's what I'll do!
Also read for the first time, The Story of the Other Wise Man. I loved this book. Great topics for conversation here about the letter of the law verses the Spirit. Love verses righteousness.
An Orange for Frankie by Patricia Polacco (warning:tear jerker)
Room for a little one by Martin Waddell
The Legend of the Candy Cane by Lori Walburg
I have most of the ones already listed and enjoy them alot. Happy reading!
Ytreeide's written several other books covering characters appearing in Jotham's Journey but we haven't tried those yet.
Somehow I came across Jotham's Journey when it was still available new but the price for a used copy nowadays is unbelievable (to me, at least!) and the other books (used) in the series are priced high, too. I didn't even realize it until someone I recommended the book to told me she hadn't been able to find a copy locally so I offered to search bookfinder.com for her. I think $60 was the cheapest copy I could find... :(
I had no idea. I think I had better tell my friend. I may have given mine to our church library since my children have outgrown it, but I'm fine with that.
It's a nice little website, and there are some other very interesting books there as well.
The author also has a profile on LT, you can see his note on my profile if you are interested.
