This is our third book overall and the first book from the independent reading list that my daughter will use in her homeschooling next year. I’m super pumped to use this list because many of the books I’ve never heard of, let alone had the pleasure to read! For an intro to my approach with book notes, click here. Meanwhile, here’s a rundown of the book:

Synopsis from Goodreads:
If you are young enough to love a story, and just about everyone is, here are more stories from Grandma’s attic. Magical pieces of a day gone by . . . told by that natural storyteller of all loving families and Grandma, the one who never forgets the fun and laughter of a simpler, perhaps richer time.
Stories of an old rag doll that seems to come alive . . . of a newborn goat dancing stiff-legged in the old farm kitchen . . . and of a faith that gives life meaning.
Here are those marvelous tales and; faithfully recalled for the delight of young and old alike, a touchstone to another day when life was simpler, perhaps richer; when the treasures of family life and love were passed from generation to generation by a child’s questions . . . and the legends that followed enlarged our faith.
