Beware of false history textbooks

I read an interesting article this morning, which I found because someone had tweeted that site’s previous article about altered history textbooks. Fascinating, and scary, stuff! It makes me really wonder what books to believe, and what I should be teaching my children! But then, I’ve had this discussion before on the Secular Charlotte Mason yahoogroup (LOVE that group, by […]

VIDEO REVIEW: Liberty Kids

Not so. This was my daughter’s second time hearing it and my son’s first. My daughter was around my son’s current age when she heard […]
