Books Spark Imaginations

He he he, I'm so tickled right now. I know my children are digesting their Literature when I walked down the hall and heard them playing coon hunting.
We chose the A Beka 7th grade Of People Literature book to be our spine to guide us through Literature this year. As we read through a unit in the book we chose another book to read along side of it that would bring out more about a certain Poet/Author/Story/Etc. The first unit we are reading from the Of People book has a short version of Where the Red Fern Grows. So this month we chose to read the actual book Where the Red Fern Grows. It's about Billy and his coon dogs so after hearing my children pretending to coon hunt with their little animals I know the book is making an impression on them. Guess they receive an "A" for Literature today.
How is all of your studies going? Happy Homeschooling this week!

Becky, we are enjoying it. It has been a great book to use for the discussion of many topics. I'm sure we'll remember this book for years to come.
