House of Literature Bookmobile

This is the place I share book (movie) selections and reviews I have found worth mentioning. I'll also share gleanings of family life, faith, home education, and ongoing writing projects. Book selections will include children's books, books on home education, Catholic books, classics, series, raising children, and books that are made for reading under a shady oak tree with lemonade, in a bubble bath with a latte', or next to a snuggly fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa. Happy Reading!

Founder of Red Cross

Just got home from the library. My oldest daughter is writing a report on Clara Barton~ Founder of the Red Cross.

She has Clara Barton--Founder of the Red Cross by Christin Ditchfield and
Clara Barton--Healing the Wounds by Cathy East Dubowski.

While registering at the dance studio, tanking the vehicle and stopping at Sonic for ice cream, she read quickly through A Discovery Biography Clara Barton--Soldier of Mercy by Mary Catherine Rose. This book is very below her grade level but it was a fast read and I plan to have my seven-year-old read it this week while we study a little on the Red Cross and the whole Hurricane Katrina situation.
