Book Review - How To Teach Your Children Shakespeare


As a homeschool mother of two young boys (ages 8 & 7), I have always wondered when the time came how I would try and get my sons to understand Shakespeare. I enjoyed learning Shakespeare when I was younger. However, I was a young.. calm... girl... the love and sacrifices people made in his writings were interesting to me. But I never saw how Shakespeare (especially, Romeo and Juliet) would be interesting to my hyper, silly, goofy boys.. who think kisses and girls are yucky!! 



After reading How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare, written by: Ken Ludwig I'm here to say you can teach your children (even silly, rotten boys) to enjoy Shakespeare! In this book Ken Ludwig will show you how to take pieces of Shakespeare's writings and help your child to understand and memorize "bits and pieces"...... and those "pieces" are added to more "pieces" and soon your child has memorized a complete line and understands it fully.... amazing!! 

I enjoyed the opportunity to review this book. It has helped to me show me how I can and will teach my children to enjoy Shakespeare.

Book Review - The Family Project


I was given the opportunity to review The Family Project, written by: Glenn T. Stanton and Leon C. Wirth. (Focus On The Family) Below is a brief description of this book: 

We all know what families look like when they’re broken. But how were they meant to look? Authors Glenn Stanton and Leon Wirth rediscover the Creator’s majestic plan behind this essential, endangered institution—and bring it down to earth with practical application for every spouse and parent. This book is an extension of Focus on the Family’s much-anticipated The Family Project, a 12-week church and small group series that will change the way moms, dads, wives, and husbands see themselves—and help them build healthy households from the best blueprint of all. While following the topic outline of The Family Project curriculum, this book stands alone and delves into the subject areas more deeply. It provides a solid exploration of God’s design and the transformative purpose of biblical families, and also offers down-to-earth helps for living out God’s design in your own family, along with inspiration for helping others do the same. ~ amazon 

My Review: 

This book is another great resources from Focus On The Family! The Family Project, gives examples of how there are struggles families may face.... however, we have a Heavenly Father looking out for us and The Family Project gives us practical solutions and ideas on how to build a stronger family! "In this book you will find scientific, biblical and historical proof that the inventors of families knew what He was doing.... "  I am glad I was given the chance to read this book and I know I will use it for future study as well. I recommend The Family Project to small, large, single..... families of all types... I know if given the chance you will enjoy it as I did!
