Well, it is SNOWING here in Virginia, so schools are closed, and it is time to snuggle up with a warm blanket and read. I have been reading an old-timey children's series that is VERY, VERY old. It is Martha Finley's Elsie Dinsmore Series. I can highly recommend it for many reasons, but I think it best that you judge this series for yourself. The series is FREE if you want to check it out and decide if the world of Elsie Dinsmore is for you. The Elsie Series has some controvery out there in the blogosphere, but just like Gone With the Wind the books need to be judged from the historical persepective in which they were written. Trying to raise an Elsie today using the methodolgy of the 1800s is not the message of the book...How to raise a GOOD PERSON in todays society is the theme whether it be a boy or a girl. Take a peek and let us know what you think of Elsie. I've enjoyed reading them because it has been a magic key to take me to a long ago place where otherwise I would never have been able to venture.
