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!

I Stand Corrected...

My daughter brought me her paper on Clara Barton to proofread. While reading it, I noticed she had Ms. Barton down as Founder of the AMERICAN RED CROSS.

Well, bust my buttons! I didn't know there was a difference. Kayleigh set me straight. There is, in fact, an International Red Cross and an American Red Cross. There is even a Canadian Red Cross and, probably, many others as well.

Clara Barton founded the AMERICAN Red Cross as a sister-act to the International Red Cross that so inspired her into public service.
