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.
