1. I loved the little novel I read this month: Blue Willow by Doris Gates. It was one of my favorite books as a child, and I hadn’t read it since then. As I was reading, I kept wondering what I would have been thinking as an 8-yr-old reading it. 🙂

    I share a brief review and excerpt here:

    I read Johnny Tremain during our homeschooling years and remember that I learned a lot about the times too. That’s one of my favorite thing about historical fiction; not just the story per se, but the tidbits I learn about the culture.

    And now you have me interested in the Moffats.

    Looking forward to the 50s next!

  2. We read 21 Balloons at the beginning of the month: http://homeschooldiscoveries.com/2015/03/06/the-21-balloons-by-william-pene-du-bois/

    We also finished Strawberry Girl, but this is my quarterly editing deadline month, so I haven’t written about it yet. I’m supposed to submit my document for the deadline tonight, so maybe tomorrow I can get it written up. 🙂

    My daughter also read Miss Hickory, but I didn’t have the chance to read it too. She says she gives it 3.5 stars out of five, and didn’t like the weird ending. 🙂
