Books for 6/7/12

I read this book to my 6 y o girl and 7 y o boy last week. It is a delightful story to introduce kids to manuscript making and illumination. I love the soft illustrations and the process it describes of learning to draw.

I am reading this book with my friend and discussing over the phone. It is probably the most important book you could read outside the scriptures.. In case you can't read it, the title is Putting on the Armor of God by Steven A. Cramer. It tells you how sneaky and sinister satan is and how to nip his nastiness in the bud whenever he starts to play tricks on your mind.

This book is totally charming! A great love of learning book to interest children in the life of George Washington and the artist Charles Wilson Peale. It is based on a true story. I love books like this that build anticipation towards some kind of twist, joke or surprise. Delightful!
