I have the library browser out to order books. :) I've not seen Jennifer's Room or Shelley. Our Yard is Full of Birds is waiting for me at the library. Thanks for the suggestion. Is Johnny Appleseed Day coming up? I look forward to moving on the American folktales some day. We read Puss in Boots yesterday. I don't know why it seemed more far fetched than Jack in the Beanstalk.

March 11th is Johnny Appleseed Day
(I believe it is the day he died).
Princess shares his b-day, so she had asked about who he was when his name came up, I wanted to make sure we "covered" him a bit this year.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
