Monthly Reading List
By Michelle Miller
It was a sunny, humid 82 degrees outside, yet several Christmas decorations along the streets said, “Let it Snow!” There is something about those flakes wafting down that charms us (at least for the first three weeks of winter).
Since there is such fascinating science in snow and many historical events and wonderful tales which were affected by it, we can “Let It Snow” in our reading list this month! (Many more treasures can be found at your library; just look at Dewey Decimal Number 551.5784.)
Michelle has always loved words; just ask her weary-eared husband! From teaching herself to read at a very young age, to making her baby sister patronize her pretend childhood library, to owning 25,000 living books today, she has discovered that modern public libraries seldom offer children the best. Thus, she founded a private library (www.ChildrensPreservationLibrary.com) offering the great treasures to families in her area. She enjoys helping others around the country do the same.
Naturally, when she wrote her award-winning history curriculum, it harnessed the incredible potency of these great books, along with pithy and supporting spiritual commentary (www.TruthQuestHistory.com). Michelle is a veteran homeschooler (19 years, with many more to go!), columnist, speaker, consultant, and author who graduated summa cum laude from the University of Alabama. Michelle and her husband, John, have four children: two adult sons and two youngsters still at home in Michigan; they also have five cute grandsons!
