The Wise Woman Literary Analysis Book Review

The Wise Woman Literary Analysis Review

I had the opportunity to review The Wise Woman with Literary Analysis Journal Questions from Home School Adventure Co. I have to admit that I was not super enthusiastic about the story from the title itself.

It really doesn't have to be a large lapbook at all. Notebooking works on the same principle. It's a written narration of your child's learning. Whatever topic they … [Read more...]
