Guess what?

I won The White Seneca from a Homeschool Minute Newsletter contest! This book will fit in well with our history studies this spring. You can read a review of the book here if you're interested. The sequel, At Seneca Castle, is available as a free download here.

The newest contest in the Contest Central section of The Homeschool Minute is for The Adventure of Missionary Heroism, which also looks wonderful. If you are interested in these monthly contests and you don't already receive The Homeschool Minute, go here to subscribe (scroll down).

Thank you to The Old Schoolhouse Magazine for sponsoring this contest!
