Into literature

We get into little crazes, or rabbit trails, or passions, in our unschooling home.

One person's passion inspires another's.

When the boys were little, it was dress ups...and war..and Star Wars ( it is still Star Wars; we are Star Wars nerds) .. and Lego..and TMNT with rosary beads...sparkly, shiny rosary beads.

Or the big kids invented games of Kings, with casinos and constitutions and government and building cubbies, and our very-close -friends joined in..and the toddlers and preschoolers clamoured to be included, as army guys or slaves or servants..and they were!

This week we are Into Literature.

It all started with watching the DVD of the TV series Cranford, a gift from a friend.

And discussion about The Giver by Lois Lowry and discussion of pro life issues.

Our Homeschool logging blog, St Anthony Academy, tells some of the story.
