Don't Forget Daniel Boone....

I've really enjoyed reading about Daniel and Rebecca Boone!  I must admit, prior to our reading, I wasn't even sure Daniel Boone was a real person.  I thought maybe he was a legend, like Paul Bunyan and John Henry.  This may sound crazy to some of you, but I don't ever remember really learning about Daniel Boone.  However, after reading a few GREAT books, I don't think studying his life is to be missed!

Angel read Daniel Boone, Young Hunter and Tracker (Childhood of Famous Americans) by Augusta Stevenson to Riley and Ruben a while back.  The kids reported this was a good overview of Boone's childhood.  It is an easier read, especially for younger children (K-3rd).

I read aloud Daniel Boone by James Daugherty and Wilderness Wife - The Story of Rebecca Bryan Boone by Etta DeGering recently as part of our TruthQuest History study.  Daugherty's book has wonderful illustrations.  However, the text is more challenging.  It is a great history of Boone's life and how he pioneered the frontier of Kentucky.  I would recommend this book for older students (grades 7-12) and adults alike.

Wilderness Wife, my personal favorite, is a biography of Rebecca Bryan Boone, Daniel's wife.  IMHO, Rebecca was an amazing person. In the Preface, DeGering describes her as "A modern Ruth", quoting Rebecca words, "Whither thou goest, I will go" - she followed Daniel."  I felt Rebecca was an outstanding Biblical role model.  She was a supportive wife and loving mother, constantly making do with very little and never complaining.  Through her actions, you could see her faith in God and feel her love for her husband and children.

After the Preface, DeGering gives genealogy like charts of The Morgan Bryan Family, The Joseph Bryan Family, The Squire Boone, Senior, Family, and The Family of Daniel and Rebecca Boone for reference while you read.  These charts are very helpful for keeping track of family members as the story progresses.

Chapter One begins in 1755, with Rebecca's life as a young woman on the forks of the Yadkin River in Rowan County, North Carolina.  In the remaining chapters, we learn of Rebecca's introduction to Daniel Boone and their courtship.  As the story of her life unfolds, we see the birth of her children, many re settlements, and Rebecca's death on March 18, 1813.  Throughout which, we also learn about Daniel's explorations and frontier adventures.  In my mind, DeGering did a wonderful job of maintaining the integrity of Daniel and Rebecca Boone.  I gained great respect for their life as well as the life of America's early pioneer families.  

Wilderness Wife made me laugh and cry.  It is a "living book" at its best.  I'm sad to say Wilderness Wife is out of print.  However, I think it's definitely worth the effort and money to find an original copy and add it to your library.  The book had a huge impact on me and I intend to read it again in the future.  

Ruben is a huge fan of Daniel Boone.  He watches the old reruns on ME TV weekday mornings.  Reading all these books has been a good exercise for him in discernment.  I think both he and RileyAnn were surprised to see some of the untrue Hollywood extras added for TV.  One myth busted, Daniel Boone did not wear coon skin caps.  He found them quite uncomfortable and preferred beaver felt instead :)

A couple other books to add while studying frontier/pioneering in the Cumberland Gap region with young children, are The True Book of Pioneers by Mabel Harmer and Susannah the Pioneer Cow by Miriam E. Mason.  Harmer's book gives an overview of pioneers and early settlers in a readable, but not dumbed down fashion.  Susannah is a very cute and charming pioneering story for early elementary children.

The Right Side of Normal....

  I just finished reading The Right Side of Normal by Cindy Gaddis .  Though I don't agree with every recommendation in the book, Ms. Gaddis has some valid points.  Below are a few quotes I found intriguing....

"Right-brained children love to learn, hate to be taught.  Resistance is often a natrual response to being taught in a manner not conducive to how they learn or not connected to a meaningful need or desire to know.  That said, when the right resources and timing are utilized, a right-brained learner is actively and eagerly engaged in the learning process.  In fact, they are often insatiable learners."  (The Right Side of Normal, Cindy Gaddis, pg 149)

"Because of the left-brained scope and sequence found in our schools, as a society we are conditioned to believe that the 'correct' age to learn to read is in the 5 to 7 year old age range, a range that includes first grade at its center.  We even use the comparative descriptions 'early reader' if a child learns in the 3 to 5 year time frame and 'late reader' if the skill is attained between 8 to 10 years.  This is false conditioning.  The truth is that it's within the norm to learn to read anywhere from 3 to 12 years old.  That age time frame of 5 to 7 years is simply the average norm for a left-brained learner and the age time frame of 8 to 10 years is the average norm for a right-brained learner."  (The Right Side of Normal, Cindy Gaddis, pg 201)

"The right-brained learner is most ready to learn arithmetic starting between the ages of 8 and 10 years old, after the 'age of shifting' from primarily viewing everything from a three-dimensional perspective, to the ability to include two-dimensional symbolic processing."   (The Right Side of Normal, Cindy Gaddis, pg 243)

In her book, Gaddis continues with right-brained learning in many other core subjects such as writing, spelling, history, and science.  In the last section of the book, Gaddis addresses common labels given to right-brained learners.  I appreciate the time and energy Ms. Gaddis' put into her work.  But I struggle with polarizing right and left brain learners to this extreme. 

I don't necessarily agree with Gaddis' ideas in chapter 16 on exposing right brain students, particularly young children, to mythology.  I believe we must steep our young children in Biblical principles before exposing them to what is false.  Any child who is regularly read Bible stories, folktales, and Aesop's fables will gain vivid mental images and ideas for "creative expression".  

I also disagree with Ms. Gaddis' comment on page 209 against the Charlotte Mason teaching methodology for right brain learners.    If children are exposed to comic books, manga, and magazines regularly rather than great living books, their tastes will prefer the glossy spreads and visual images.  However, I believe if children are exposed to great living books, they will acquire a taste for them instead.  I feel this is true for children and adults, whether right or left brained.

With that said, I also believe there is a time and place for magazines and comic books, but I would caution against them being a primary source of knowledge.  In our world, visual stimulation is everywhere.  It is not necessary to seek it out.  If your student struggles with reading, I recommend reading great living books aloud to them or finding audio versions through media.  Exposing your student to beautiful and rich language will advance their vocabulary and imagination.

Even though I don't agree with everything Ms. Gaddis writes, I do think there are enough gold nuggets in The Right Side of Normal to make it worth your time.

Books for Sale - April Update....



I am a homeschooling mother of 5 with a real passion for books.  It's my mission to rescue great living books and get them in the hands of families that cherish books as much as we do.   Many of the living books I have for sale are duplicate copies of books in our personal library.   Many of these books are no longer in print, have disappeared from the public libraries, and are getting harder and harder to find.  Some of the books are new, most are used, and some are ex-library copies with the usual markings.  We are a smoke and pet free home. 

The books are listed two ways for ease of browsing.  First, anything history related is listed chronologically.  So if you know the time period you’d like to study, you can scroll to that section. Second, the books are divided into categories, alphabetical by popular publishers and curricula companies, and then, by subject.  I have tried to list recommended grades or ages where appropriate. 

There is no minimum order.  I accept PayPal.  I use media mail shipping and ship anywhere in the U.S.   Actual shipping is figured by weight.  Please send questions or desired book list to m.greenebalts@yahoo.com for a shipping quote.  

Thanks for looking,

Melissa
