My older granddaughter is turning five in a few weeks. This delightful book will soon be on its way to New England as her 5th birthday present.
It can be difficult for homeschool moms to find books which their children can enter into, finding themselves in the pages...especially when it comes to their schooling experiences. This book is about a little girl whose educated at home with her brothers and sisters. However, it will prove just as much fun to children who do not homeschool.
This story of a farm family (I'd say around the turn of the century 1900) is both written and illustrated by Johannah Bluedorn. I had the book sent directly to me so I could read it first. I am so glad I did. The illustrations are gorgeous, the storyline is sweet without being too artificial, and the size of the book is perfect for young readers. So many picture books are quite large, this one is "just right"...large enough to enjoy the illustrations but small enough that a preschooler can handle the pages.
I ordered the book directly from Trivium Pursuit. The link will take you directly to the page about My Mommy, My Teacher. Scroll down and you will view a few pages from the inside of this delightful book. I will definitely be ordering more of Johannah Bluedorn's books for grandchildren in the future.
