It has been a busy, busy summer. I haven't been home since the end of June and won't be home until next week. I've loved every minute seeing new sights and spending time with family.
But I've still been working in spare moments here and there and thanks to my wonderful family, I have several announcements to make in anticipation of starting a new school year.
My awesome Krystal has redesigned and streamlined our store. Please check it out for some new options that I'll talk more about as we go along, including 3 new series:
1. My Book of Delights, filled with full color fine art, poetry, and beginning reader stories that align with the rotation schedule. I talk about it in one of this week's Take 5s. We'll be posting a sample shorty.
2. Our Little Cousin Series. These are perfect introductions to the countries for our children. We will also be reprinting Lucy Fitch Perkins' Twin Series and including it in this series. We have grouped them according to the rotation schedule and combined three books into one volume to save on expense for those of you who would like hard copies. We kept the open larger font for children who want to read these for themselves. There will be 24 volumes in all--the first one includes Month 1 topic, Scandinavia.
3. The World's Story: A History of the World in Story, Song and Art by Eva March Tappan. We have also grouped these stories by the rotation schedule, with Volume 1 covering US Discovery and Scandinavia. I love this set of books, but have been unable to secure a hard copy for myself. I've wanted to bring it into print for a long time. Our version will have 24 volumes of about 375 pages each. I see these as appealing more to High School students, but there are selections that would be great read alouds to younger students. A true treasure for your family library.
If you order in the next few days, you should have them in time for September.
