I just finished reading this book tonight. I devoured it. It was so fun to read. It's the sequel to "A Pocketful of Pinecones". The main character is a homeschooling Mom during the Great Depression. It's written as a story, but includes a lot of helpful information if you are attempting to educate your children using the Charlotte Mason style. She mentions many good classic books, includes several poems and recipes, and includes various domestic pursuits such as canning, knitting, and crocheting. I highly recommend it! I ordered it from www.christianbook.com.
