After reading Pocketful of Pinecones I just had to get my hands on this book. This book seems so simple; yet really becomes a book with many layers. Godly characters, home making, and homeschooling are all covered to give encouragement. A nice bonus is the "chatterbox" in the back. I enjoyed reading Mrs. Andreola's information and learning more from it.
This book was a reminder of simpler times amid our modern day chaos. It was nice to pick up and dream of the days of apple festivals, canning, gardening for food, wood heat, and sewing. Nice story line-but ending not adequate for me.
This is not just a wonderful book, but what a spirit lifter! Whether you are a CMer or not, this book will lift your spirits and rejuvenate you in your homeschooling journey. I have read pockets and lessons over and over and over again. You will not tire of reading these books. Karen is a wonderful person, writer, reviewer. I have ALL of her books and almost all the books I use in our homeschool have been suggested by her......and I've NEVER been disappointed. You need this book. It's just that good.
