Homeschool mom trying desperately to read grown-up stuff (at least occasionally)

This was a fun read, although a bit old for my daughter (subject, not ability).

Friday is an unusual child in an unusual family. She takes up solving crime, which earns her reward money, which finances boarding school, which turns out to be full of mystery. Looking forward to the next one (darn cliffhanger).

Tamra What age range would you suggest? Are there illustrations? 15h
ravenlee @Tamra there are some illustrations but not many. I‘d go with age 10-12 or so. MC is 11 and going to boarding school for seventh grade. There‘s a bit of crush stuff, blooming awareness of class difference and clothing reflecting that. Not inappropriate for my 6-year-old but I don‘t think she‘d get into it. 15h
Tamra @ravenlee thank you - I‘ll check out a library copy to peruse. 15h

An interesting analysis of art history focusing on the role of the viewer more than that of the artist, incorporating the purpose of the objects as well. Beautifully illustrated with clear photographs (more books like this need this kind of photos), and concise description.

I enjoyed this so much I bought my own copy and then dived into it again, about six weeks after reading it in the first place. I love how Emily starts to treat herself better, the way she treats everyone else. And Ian Blackthorne - swoon!

How to Raise a Reader | Pamela Paul, Maria Russo

Pickpick

Overall this is a good look at introducing and continuing reading from birth to teenage years. Good tips, some food recommendations - but I cussed out loud when I found this. Um, Stellaluna, that classic children‘s book character, is not male, and you‘d expect these authors, with all their experience in the genre, to know that. Again, it makes me question the details of the other book synopses.

Reviewsbylola Oops! I‘m glad you liked this one! I still have only read the chapter that relates to the current ages of my kids, as well as the recommended reading. 😆 I think it will be a good resource to have! 3d
ravenlee @Reviewsbylola I just spent most of the morning writing down the recommended books before taking this back to the library. I kept running out of lines on my paper, there were so many! 3d

This is a cute story about kittens struggling to be taken seriously in the building trades. Marmalade is an architect, Sampson an electrical engineer, and Bubbles a plumber. Together they form Kitten Construction Company and build a new mayor‘s mansion.

My only complaint is they never do get taken seriously by most, but they do get some notice and a new project.

LibrarianRyan In book 2 they are joined by dogs, and they don't take the dogs seriously. 1w
ravenlee @LibrarianRyan sounds interesting, but our library doesn‘t have book 2. 1w

Well, I finally managed to read these to the kiddo. We enjoyed them, despite my struggles. I offer my sincerest apologies to all Scots for my mangling of your language!

ravenlee @Tamra we‘ve enjoyed The Gruffalo before, and I‘d been wanting to read The Gruffalo‘s Child, but I didn‘t realize I‘d gotten them in Scots. 😆 It was challenging but fun! We‘ve enjoyed all of her books we‘ve found. 1w

At times derivative (as in stealing devices from Tangled), at times clever, this one is tough to rate. It‘s long for MG, has parts that might be scary for younger readers (devouring children, kidnapping babies), definitely for older MG.

Rapunzel leaves her tower with Jack Beanstalker and travels through the land of Tyme. During their adventures she learns that Witch is not the loving mother she thought she was.

Yesterday I had a little time to myself. My rehearsal ended early and I needed to get lunch before heading home. I may have tripped and fallen into BN on the way to lunch and ended up with this #bookhaul. Well Met was so fun I needed my own copy, and Jeaniene Frost comes recommended by Ilona Andrews, who have never led me astray before. Not sure when I‘ll get to them...

Well, I finished this one yesterday. I‘m not sure what I read, exactly. I am definitely out of practice in scholarly reading, but even so I think this one is challenging.

Kerenyi delves into the opposing roles of Athena, that of the maiden and that of the mother, and proposes the notion that both roles serve to enforce the patriarchy. There‘s more to it, of course, but I‘ll have to read it again. And probably again.

38 down for #nancydrewchallenge - unlikely we‘ll finish the whole series this year but we‘re plugging along.

A life-size dancing puppet is plaguing an amateur theater troupe, and Nancy steps in to unravel this tangled mystery. As usual, several seemingly-unrelated threads come together and Nancy sorts everything out.

Hooked_on_books You‘ll be very disappointed in me. At the recent library book sale, there was a whole box full of old Nancy Drews in great condition and I didn‘t buy a single one. 😯 2w

Thermal Thursday | Don Pendleton

Y‘all.

Hubby told me he set up the kettle and my mug, so all I had to do was reheat the water and pour. So I did, also trying to get the kid out of her warm bed.

Several minutes later (still no sign of the kid) I tried to pull out the tea bag but couldn‘t find it. Sniffed my tea, smells like nothing. Turn on the brighter kitchen light. I‘ve been steeping hot water. Nothing in it.

Gonna be a long day.

Tamra 😏 2w
Clare-Dragonfly Better than the time I microwaved a mug with a teabag and no water 🤦🏻‍♀️ 2w
ravenlee @Clare-Dragonfly 😂😂😂 2w
ravenlee Like an idiot, I threw the teabag into the water that had been sitting for ten minutes and was no longer hot enough to steep...then microwaved it. It worked, kinda. Told hubby about it later when he stopped in at lunch, and he got the water going in the kettle again. I did it properly, and it was amazing how different it was! 😂 The rest of my day went about as expected from that beginning. 2w

I tried to start this today while waiting for kiddo‘s STEM class, but it was crazy loud with other moms, little siblings running amok, and various other library din.

I chatted with a few other homeschool moms (new for me - socializing!), and it was mostly fun, but I have now experienced my first moment of “what church do you go to?” and “what do you use for Bible study?” and then the scandalized silence when I respond “we‘re not Christian.”

Sace Ugh. I wish I could be more eloquent than that. I'm sorry that happened to you. 2w
ljuliel Those types of conversations get on my last nerve. It‘s no one else‘s business if you attend church, if you believe in their religion, if you‘ve been saved, if you‘re going to heaven , etc. Very irritating and uncomfortable. (edited) 2w
ravenlee Thank you, @Sace and @ljuliel . Living in the South it‘s a fact of life, unfortunately, but it seems even more problematic for homeschooling (which is, by far, a religious community). It was also compounded by the mention of several churches where I either work or have worked as a musician or music teacher. Utter confusion. 2w

Sace @ravenlee I'm in the South too. I hear ya! 2w
ljuliel I live in the North in a small town that is at least 50% religious. Believe me, those same things go on up here. It‘s happened to me at our local gym , twice. Old men who approach me about reading the Bible, getting saved, believing...you know ? I‘ve lived here for my entire life. (61 years ) . I know where every church is. If I wanted to go, I would. People shouldn‘t force their beliefs on you. It‘s invading my space. 2w
ravenlee @ljuliel some old guy approached me at the gym, years ago, and asked if the book I was reading was Christian, and when I said no he asked if I wanted to be “cuz I‘d witness to ya!” When I taught lessons through a church music program one man insisted on meeting all the teachers before signing up his kids, and all he wanted to know was where did we go to church and did we own a bible. Nothing about music or teaching. Back off, creeps! 2w
ljuliel Agreed completely. 2w
BookNAround @ravenlee As another person living in the South, I tend to tell people we worship at the Church of St. Mattress. It‘s kind of funny to watch people work through that until they finally get it. Of course it cements my reputation as a heathen, but... 2w
Amiable @BookNAround The Church of St. Mattress--love it! 😂 Like @ljuliel I live in the North, but in New England which is very live-and-let-live. (Or more like “go-to-church-or-don't-whatever-works-for-you-just-don't-clog-up-the-drive-through-line-at-Dunkin-Donuts-on-your-way.“) I am not sure I could ever be a good fit in a place where people feel the need to proselytize. I don't need to be saved, thank you. I'm good. (edited) 2w
ravenlee I should have just said we‘re secular homeschoolers, not that it would have been much better. Around here, though, it‘s as much a social thing as real faith. My mom (who lives in Idaho) was talking to someone from here once who told her to tell me to go to her son‘s church - and my mom told her I wasn‘t of that faith, and she said it didn‘t matter but to come on down! I just want to be left alone, thanks! 😆 2w
ljuliel @Amiable I think I should move further north up in your neck of the woods. I‘d rather go get a donut 🍩 and have people mind their own business. Our town has a large population of a group one rung down from Amish / Mennonite...the other churchy sorts are Holy Rollers. Not a good area for me. The last time I stepped into a church, it caught on fire 🔥. No lie. Fire trucks 🚒 everyplace. I think that‘s a sign. @BookNAround @ravenlee (edited) 2w
Amiable @ljuliel Ah, the “you don't want the church to be struck by lightning and burn down, do you?“ excuse -- brilliant! :) It's a pretty big liberal bubble, here - which can be a huge culture shock when you leave and go somewhere else in the country. My son, who is in the Marines, spent 2+ years in the panhandle of Florida near Alabama. I'm not sure he has yet recovered from it. Things he took for granted in CT were not done the same way down there. 2w
ljuliel @Amiable - I‘ll bet. I don‘t believe you could go to 2 more different areas in our country ! (edited) 2w

I was inspired by @TK-421 to pick this up and read it. The glossary helps with the grammatical terms, the rules and reminders are clear and useful, the the examples are interesting (if sometimes dated).

A friend asked me to read her novel (I read her first draft two years ago), and I‘ll keep these tips in mind as I compile my feedback.

I always thought I had read this as a kid, but it was all new.

A girl is stranded on her home island off the CA coast when her tribe evacuates. She spends years fending for herself. Themes of isolation and survival, as well as hints of colonialism and environmental responsibility.

Another knockout from Ilona Andrews. I hope there will be many more Innkeeper stories, especially featuring Dina. I‘m looking forward to Maud‘s story, too.

Dina receives an SOS from her sister and drops everything to rescue her. Back at the Inn, a hunted alien species begs Dina for help to save their race, which triggers a war with another vicious alien race. Meanwhile, something is attacking Innkeepers.

An interesting look at the debt the West owes to the Arab thinkers from the eighth through thirteenth centuries. The “rediscovery” of Greek science and philosophy in the Middle Ages came courtesy of the Islamic world, and this book details how that happened.

It skips around a bit chronologically, and can be a bit confusing (luckily it dovetails some with A History of God by Armstrong, which I read recently, so that helped)

ravenlee but it‘s very interesting. Gives me a nice supplement to our homeschool medieval history studies. 3w

It seems I wasn‘t exactly paying attention at the library yesterday, because I had no idea these weren‘t the original books. I pulled one out for bedtime story last night and did a double take, then put it back and grabbed something easier. I just don‘t think I could pull it off at the end of the day, ya know?

The question is, why does my library have these? Lots of Cajun stories here, sure, but Scottish is new...

An interesting romp for Nancy and Co. in New York City and Hong Kong, matching wits with an international smuggling ring who have added kidnapping and assault to their crimes!

ravenlee @Chrissyreadit sure, standards change, just like they do having kids in the first place. And I only have one, so it‘s different than having several. But this message becomes “if your house is clean you‘re not allowing creativity and inspiration - you have to make a mess all the time to homeschool well!” We just don‘t leave messes out, cleaning up is part of the process.
