Books Read in March & April

A little bit behind getting my list of books up, but here are the best of the books I enjoyed in March and April. January and February’s book list can be seen here.

Teaching Your Children Values – by Linda and Richard Eyre is a non religious parenting book on teaching values to your children. The book takes 12 different virtues and encourages parents to spend a month developing each virtue. Each virtue comes with personal stories and ideas for teaching it in your own family.

The Mission Minded Family: Releasing Your Family to God’s Destiny – by Ann Dunagan is an excellent book that explores various aspects of a mission minded family. From finances, short term mission trips, prayer and biographies there is a lot of great information packed into this challenging and though provoking book.

The Write Start; A Guide to Nurturing Writing at Every Stage, from Scribbling to Forming Letters and Writing Stories by Jennifer Hallissy gives practical advice for teaching your children how to write well at any age. I enjoyed the book so much {library copy} that I purchased my own for future reference.

The Book of Nurturing : Nine Natural Laws for Enriching Your Family Life by Linda and Richard Eyre is a prequel to the first book and gives 9 steps parents can follow for nurturing their children and family life.

The Well-Educated Mind: A Guide to the Classical Education You Never Had by Susan Wise Bauer, the same author as The Well Trained Mind, challenges adults to read, and retain what they read, better.  There is an excellent reading list in the second half of the book and Paul {who also read this book} and I are challenging ourselves to read through it.

The Seven Laws of Teaching – by John M Gregory {an ebook – not sure if there are any printed ones available}. Was written in 1884 for Sunday School teachers. It has some excellent and practical steps for teachers and home educators today.
