Read Aloud: The Dollmaker of Krakow

This year we have been making a study of Poland.  This is the book that inspired the unit study, but we are only just now getting to reading it because it comes later in chronological order.  I read several pages aloud each day before we get going with the rest of our studies.  It’s utterly charming.  The illustrations are lovely.  I’m a little obsessed with this style of art.  And the colours on the cover are pretty perfect for my life right now.

If you have a familiarity with trauma, the will take on a deeper meaning and you may find yourself crying through the first couple of chapters.  Ask me how I know.

 

And speaking of art, I’m having another go at a project idea that I tried a couple of years ago.  The composition is better,but this is only the first ‘draft’.  It still needs a lot of work, but I like the direction I’m headed in.
