Soldier Fritz and the Enemies He Fought in the mail from Salem Ridge Press. We also received two e-books, Mary Jane--Her Visit and The American Twins of the Revolution just to give us a better taste of the types of books that this company has to offer.A few weeks ago we received the book
Salem Ridge Press was founded in 2005 to offer reprints of quality, previously published children's books from the 1800's and early 1900's. Following the Charlotte Mason principle of learning through "living books" rather than textbooks, this company offers books that make history come alive for the young readers who quickly become engrossed in the stories these authors weave.
The stories that I read to my daughter from this company actually reminded me of the books I read when I was a child. I honestly can't say that I remember one detail from a history class, but I could retell countless tales of the history I learned as I read and re-read stories of people who lived in a different time and place. Similarly, I quickly became engrossed in the stories we received. I must confess that I cheated and read ahead a bit because our daily reading time wasn't going quite fast enough, and I wanted to know what was going to happen in the lives of the children in whom I had become so quickly invested.
