Free Resources

I just had to let you all know of these free resources. I have been using the McGuffey Readers for L/A and was looking into buying the next ones when I thought maybe they were on the website that has free books on it that I put on a post a while ago. Sure enough, all the readers were there and are for free because they are part of the public domain. You can download them as an ebook, word or pdf format. Here is a link to the webpage - http://oldfashionededucation.com/reading.htm You just have to scroll down to the bottom.

A DVD Review

I have been telling my friends about this DVD set we purchased from http://www.christianbook.com/ and, now that we've watched most of it, I wanted to give a little review. This was a TV series from Canada in the '70s and they only made this one season.

Over all, this is a very wholesome show. The Robinson's read their bible, pray and quote scripture in a few episodes and work together to survive on their island.

Almost all the episodes could be scary, but it always has a happy ending and if something seemed scary, it is all explained in the end. There are skeletons, a live birth of a goat, and wild animals.

Jacob, who is 5, loves this show. He watches it with a blanket pulled up to his eyes and I can tell he's on the edge of his seat with excitement.

If anyone is interested, you can go to this link, http://www.christianbook.com/the-swiss-family-robinson-3/pd/106654?product_redirect=1&Ntt=106654&item_code=&Ntk=keywords&event=ESRCP and check it out.
