The Worth of a Challenge

If you give a child a fish, you feed him for a day.
If you teach a child to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.
But if you teach a child to learn, you feed him for a lifetime
and he doesn't have to just eat fish.

D.E.A.R.s Program

"What the heck is D.E.AR.s ?", my husband asked me the other day...and I responded that it stands for drop everything and read. This year we are going to have this as a part of our little school. It is an opportunity for the kids to do just as it says, drop everything and read. All the books will be available as well as a selection of books from the Texas Library Association. They have a great selection of books that are leveled for children from the very young all the way up to adult. This year we will be reading the 2x2's and the Bluebonnets. I know other homeschoolers might be interested in voting for the bluebonnet books and should contact their local library. Homeschoolers can vote there and if you are as lucky as we are, they might even have a kid version of book club where they can discuss books and talk about what they liked and didn't like about them. If you don't live in the lone star state at all, you can still read the books and maybe even start your own book club! Either way, I think taking 20 minutes to just read can enrich anyone young or old.
