About a year ago my oldest son started to love to read. He couldn’t get his hands on enough books to read and that love of reading rubbed off on his younger brother. It makes me so happy to see them reading. My younger son is in 2nd grade and he has been reading books that are at a 5th grade level. I think it is so important to have good books available for my kids.
We had been homeschooling for many years and I realized we had many books in our homeschool curriculum from Bethlehem Books. They were always great stories and illustrations.

The Hedge School
It is perilous to be a Catholic in the Ireland of 1735, and almost more than can be borne for fifteen-year-old Padraic Fitzbrian. Nearly 100 years before, Lord Protector Cromwell of England had put down the Irish rebellion—confiscating lands, killing priests, outlawing the Mass and prohibiting education of any kind for Irish Catholics. Padraic and his two friends, Liam and Rose, are in their last year as scholars in the forbidden and risky “all-weathers” classroom under the hedgerow.
A Day on Skates is a brilliant picture book about a Dutch boy and his sister who go on a skating picnic with their teacher for the whole day. It is an adventurous tale that draws the reader into the story and gives insight into a world far away. There are seven full-cover paintings and numerous line drawings enliven this Commemorative edition
The Miracle of St. Nicholas is another great children’s book about a Russian boy and his babushka who talk about the past and faith and hope for miracles.
