Just got my new shipment of Sam the Minuteman.   I know some of you have been waiting for it to come it.

I spoke with the Librarian at the Elementary school that I work in about this book. It is on the AR (Accelerated Reading) list, and I said I would like to donate it to the library. She said that she would love to put it on the self. So it looks as if Sam the Minuteman is going to public school again.

Your version of "ineffective" does not necessarily reflect the truth....
Having been "ineffectively" taught to the Rifleman Standard and having been "ineffectively" taught to teach others to the Rifleman Standard, I believe I prefer the "ineffective" over the other choice.

We did the same last year on April 19.....  Even after my daughter's teacher objected to the premise of the book for children...... The School Librarian gladly accepted it, donated by our family and the RWVA....

Hello Ladies and Gents,

Sam the Minuteman is a terrific book for our kiddos.

I bought 10 of them last year, maybe two years ago....I can't remember......I am out as of 8 months ago.

I am gonna buy some more on amazon.


Now, with that being said, do you know of any other books that would be good reads for our kiddos?

It does not have to relate with our American Revolutionary War.

Just some good short books with a good read and memorable graphics for kids that might help instill good values.....honesty, integrity, learning, fortitude, etc.....

They will likely be published during past years, that is no matter so long as I can find them at a decent price.



You know, this might be a good time to make a recommended book reading list for parents to give to the youngsters.....a hammer just fell on my head.  ^-^...........there might be reading book lists on some homeschooler forums as a resource as well......I don't know as I don't have children yet.


Thanks for any information!


Brett out.

There's another in the same series about a drummer in the Rev war. 

I still have a bunch for those wanting them.

Well that would be cool. I'll get an order to you after the Holiday season for some more STMM and the other as well.

Thanks
