Learning from History

WOW…I had no idea (or actually had forgotten) how cool the library is! I have enjoyed more presidential biographies including…

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, T. Woodrow Wilson, Ulysses S. Grant and James Madison!

It’s amazing to have read all this American (primarily presidential) history last spring and into the summer.  It’s fascinating for me and for my kids (at the dinner table) to talk about these men and the American events around them.  It’s like “home-schooling” without trying!  It made the Fourth of July and the childrens’ attitudes different in understanding what it means to live in a “free” country!
I have decided the Theodore Roosevelt biographies are my favorite. (The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt  and Theodore Rex  by Edmund Morris).  What an intriguing and amazing leader!
