Free books! Thanks, Homeschool Horizons!

imageA few weeks ago, I blogged about “winning a gift card.”  I was joking, but guess what???  I won!!! 

I got my card in the mail this week, and tonight, had some fun choosing and ordering homeschool books – what else? – online from Chapters / Indigo.

I’m SO happy, I just want to tell all Canadian homeschoolers to go check out their site one more time.  Remember, the first issue even has an article by me in it! 

(more to come if I can get my act together to write for their issue topics / deadlines…)

So what did I buy???

  •  Ancient Science, by Jim Wiese, as recommended by Michelle at Lionden Landing.  Before she was a homeschool mama, she was a science teacher who really knows her stuff!  I’m very excited about this book.
  • Science Around the World, by Janice VanCleave, as suggested by our Grammar-Stage Elemental Science curriculum.  And finally, just to use up the gift card…
  • Just So Stories, by Rudyard Kipling, because I have it on my Kobo, but we’re enjoying it so much, I’d love a copy for the shelf, too.  By the way, you can also download a mesmerizingly wonderful public-domain audio version from KazoomZoom here.  It’s identical to the Librivox version, but the KazoomZoom version has a bit of music in the background, which is mostly nice, though occasionally distracting.

Total order cost… $0.62 – and delivery is FREE!!!

What are your must-have books for the school year coming up (or already here)???

Are Jews an "underrepresented community" in children’s publishing?

I applied for a writing award yesterday. I'm not going to get it, but that's not what I wanted to share with you. Here's what I wanted to share. This box:   I stared at this box for a long, long time. And then I decided not to check it. Even though I believe people like me truly are underrepresented, we probably wouldn’t fit the definition in other people's minds. Why? Well, because we're European. Because we are white. Because as everybody knows, Jews control the media. (do we???) If anything, some people say, Jews are over -represented in publishing. And yet. Some definitions are careful not to include people like me. Like this random definition from the State of California which defines underrepresented for some very specific business purposes as: "an individual who self-identifies as Black, African American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Alaska Native, or who self-identi
