Looking ahead to Tapestry of Grace Year 3, Unit 2 - I'm compiling a list of additional books and resources that I'm considering using to help round out our studies.
Time Travelers: The Early 19th Century ~ The first part of this would be a review of Unit 1 and the rest seems to line up pretty well with Unit 2. We used the American Revolution study last spring, and it was a lot of fun. So, I think this will add a lot of interest to our studies.
