Books!

A homeschooling mum had a mum-and-daughter night at her place yesterday.  The theme was to bring a favourite book and to share why.  Being homeschoolers using Sonlight Curriculum, there is no shortage of books in our house.  In fact, I found it difficult to narrow the selection to just ONE.  In the end I brought

The Year of Miss Agnes by Kirkpatrick Hill: An English schoolteacher goes to teach in a one-room schoolhouse in the Alaskan bush and inspires her students there to learn.
Emily’s Runaway Imagination by Beverley Cleary
Understood Betsy by Dorothy Canfield Fisher
The Year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson by Bette Bao Lord

Susannah brought Mr Popper’s Penguins.

We had a great time!  There was a game where our hostess brought out all these items and books related to those items and you had to remember as many as you could.  Susannah and I did pretty well, remembering 34 (17 items and 17 book titles that went with those items) out of 38!

Some other books that were shared:

Anne of Green Gables
The Black Stallion
Fox in Socks
The Sign of the Beaver
Don’t Make Me Count to Three
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Farmyard Tales

I am a Malaysian-born woman who is married to an Australian and now live in Melbourne, Australia. I am a mother to four children. I home school. I like reading, writing, and cooking -- not necessarily in that order. I care about grammar and spelling, but am nonchalant about the Oxford Comma. I try to follow Christ's teachings.
