Our Week Ahead ~ 13 June 2016 (Recent Book finds for Daisy)

 A week or so back I posted about praying to find some extra reading for Daisy and we're being blessed with more books and audio titles happening into our space.  So thankful!
(Others looking for books suggestions do look in the comments section on this post;  Allie & her daughter, Elise, kindly ♥ typed up some of their favourite books.)

On a recent trip to Palmerston North we found:
Eight of the Betsy-Tacy books   We've read the first two during our earlier years using Sonlight's readers.
A Season of Gifts ~ Richard Peck
Cyrano ~ Geraldine McCaughrean     easier reading.  Not for us
A Little Bush Maid (bk 1) ~ Mary Grant Bruce
From Billabong to London (bk 4)  ~ Bruce 

Other books:

Code Talker ~ Joseph Bruchac     Recommended by some Sonlight forum moms.

Mother ~ Kathleen Norris

Small Acts of Amazing Courage ~ Whelan     recommended by Allie

Mary Emma and Company ~ Moody  (Daisy's just completed this and really enjoyed it)

The Harvester ~ Stratton-Porter

I'll only list the history topics we are reading about, along with any new reads in the book baskets, otherwise the Our Week Ahead portion of my posts can get a little long.
