Hi! Welcome to Hope Is the Word, my blog in which I review the books I read, as well as record as thoughts on home education, parenting, and living a bookish life. My name is Amy, and I am married to Steady Eddie. We have two girls: Lulu, born 5/04, and Louise, born 11/05. We have two boys: the DLM (Dear Little Man), born 6/10, and Benny, born 4/13. I am a teacher and librarian turned stay-at-home, home-educating mother. You may contact me by leaving a comment on my blog or by emailing me at hopeistheword (at) gmail (dot) com.
Hope Is the Word is the home of Read Aloud Thursday, which is a monthly meme in which bloggers share their families’ read-alouds of the month. It happens here on the fourth Thursday of each month. I’d love for you to join us some time!
