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!

"It’s not out of the question that women would someday list motherhood on a resume with pride instead of trying to cover up the fact she’s stayed home for a time."

"Comparing the brain of a non-mother to that of a mother is ‘‘like comparing a tree in the winter to one in full bloom in the spring, when it is much fuller and richer," said University of Richmond (Va.) neuroscientist Craig Kinsley, a leading researcher in the field.
The transformation of pregnancy, labor and infant care ‘‘enables the brain to process information much differently than it did before."
