Homeschooling and Literature

A good Wall Street Journal article on books popular with homeschoolers.

I don't understand the author's comment that some Christians may see Laura Ingalls Wilder as "insufficiently pious" (because she was restless on Sunday as a small child?!) but otherwise the article is worth reading.

We use the K12 curriculum, which utilizes titles by both Wilder and Lewis. Being homeschoolers, we have plenty of time for going beyond the books used in the curriculum and reading the rest of the books in each series, which, as the article points out, is one of the pleasures of homeschooling!

This is a stupid question from a novice--but do you have a link for the Wall St. Jnl. article that mentions Laura Ingalls Wilder?

From my point of view, Laura had a strong inner relationship with God which is far more important than outward "piousness."

Just click on the title for my post, "Homeschooling and Literature," and it will take you straight to the Wall Street Journal article.

I agree with your assessment of Laura :).
