WE have been busy this spring and have a batch of new titles to introduce. As we previously announced, we are reprinting titles from the American Background Series (biographical fiction about Catholic heroes in American history).
So far we have these titles completed and on sale (you can read descriptions of them on our Nature Study and History page:
The Friar and the Knight, Bartolome de Olmeda amd Cortez
Colonial Governor Thomas Dongan
Don Diego de Vargas, The Peaceful Conquistador
Henri deTonti and the Exploration of the Mississippi
Charles Carroll and the American Revolution
General Phil Sheridan and the UnionCavalry
Chaplain in Gray, Abram Ryan, Poet Priest of the Confederacy
We have two more in this series in production due out this summer.
Also, we have had this project on hold for a long time, but we have finally finished this charming reader by Emma Serl. In it, Serl compiles poetry and short stories about animals as well as provides non-fiction essays about each group of animals. Great for narration and fun reading.
Lastly, we have taken on two books by a homeschool dad about life in a big family on the farm – timeless humor!
The Adventures of Nathaniel B. Oakes
and the sequel
Never Squeeze a Honeybee, the continuing adventures of Nathaniel B. Oakes
Just-for-fun reading from Suzie Andres!
From the back cover: Have you ever kept a New Year’s Resolution? Elizabeth Benning hasn’t, but she’s determined that this will be her year. Like Elizabeth Bennet before her, Liz Benning doesn’t work, lives at home, and takes pride in her resourcefulness, but when she resolves on a yearlong project to be happier, it looks like her ambition has outrun her abilities…Enter a love interest more conniving than Wickham, a blonde cold enough to freeze out Caroline Bingley, and Elizabeth’s paradise project is heading for disaster. She’s never been so unhappy, but if she can discover which hero is straight out of her beloved Jane Austen, she might yet take the prize for happiest ever after.

We are thrilled to be reprinting Homeschooling with Gentleness: A Catholic Discovers Unschooling by Suzie Andres, originally published by Christendom Press in 2004. For those who love A Little Way of Homeschooling, this book is a sure bet for your homeschool resource collection. Suzie discusses how she came to the gentle art of unschooling and what its implications are for Catholic families.
We have reformatted our site. Please be patient as we migrate everything over– it’s taking me a long time!
What I especially like about this new format is that I can have the blog and the book descriptions all in one place–no more flipping back and forth between the blog and the shopping cart. We will be adding our cart back in over the summer, so some titles you see here will be available for sale.
