1. Theodore Roosevelt was all I ended up getting too, but I did get N1 started on The Witch of Blackbird Pond which was one I hoped to get to this month, so I’m counting it. : )

  2. I also read “Red Sails to Capri” (with my boys): http://homeschooldiscoveries.com/2015/04/24/red-sails-to-capri-by-ann-weil/ — We liked it too!

    I read “Secret of the Andes” with Miss M: http://homeschooldiscoveries.com/2015/04/13/secret-of-the-andes-by-ann-nolan-clark/ — It fell flat for us and was not a favorite. I was glad that it was short!

    My daughter read “Kildee House” and she really liked it. I planned to read it as well, but I didn’t get around to it yet. I am getting my hair done on Saturday so maybe I’ll read it while the color processes. 🙂

  3. I read two:


    I read aloud The Wheel on the School.

    I started Rifles for Watie but only got a few chapters in. I decided to pass it to my 13 year old son. He loved it. He said, “It is such a good story, you have to read it twice.” And he did read it twice. I know the book well because he has shared all of his favorite parts.

    Not too bed for April!

  4. I read The Witch of Blackbird Pond and thoroughly enjoyed it. I found it amazingly relevant to discrimination of various kinds that still occur. I guess some things about human nature don’t really change all that much about being fearful of those different than us. We just change out the who from time to time.

  5. I decided to read Gone Away Lake with the kids and we’ve had a crazy month and have several other read-alouds going so we’re still reading it.

    Also, wrong decade, but I did read this year’s Newbery winner, The Crossover.
