After weeks and weeks of whipping winds and wild rain, summer (or really, rather spring-like) weather seems to have finally come around, and it seems to be sticking around for the weekend. I’m traveling up to the way-north regions of Vermont (as in, “Oh look, I see Canada!”), where I plan to spend a good deal of my weekend wandering off in the woods and identifying trees with the help of my Audubon tree guide. Funny how that self-directed learning sticks with you…
But before that, here’s a quick review of this week’s highlights at Christianbook.com!
Check out our Calvin’s 500th store; now’s the time to get better acquainted with this influential reformer (It’s his actual birthday today—July 10th).
New DVDs from Franklin Springs Media are available for ordering.
The Science: Out of This World series has been updated, and now includes Book-with-DVD sets!
Our weekly article “Safely in His Arms” encourages single homeschooling moms; a topic often overlooked, and sorely needed.
For you sale-watchers, be sure you’re on our email list–we’ve got another one starting next week, in addition to our Saxon Sale!
And lastly, the American Girls historical series is back at Christianbook.com! It was probably these books more than any other that gave me such a lasting love of history as a child, and I can easily remember all the days I spent at the library looking up information on World War II (because of Molly), slavery & abolition (because of Addy), and horses (because of Felicity). Written for girls around age 9 or so, if you’ve never encountered them, check them out at the library or borrow them from a friend—you might find a new favorite series!
