Another Rave Review

People who really care about great children’s literature really love NR’s “Treasury Classics” collections. I just received this glowing review from the good folks at Eclectic Homeschool Online:

If you’re looking for the perfect read-aloud book of stories, look no farther than The National Review Treasury of Classic Children’s Literature Vol. 2. This second volume of children’s stories, published by The National Review, is a selection of the very best stories, mostly taken from St Nicholas Magazine, published from 1874 to 1941. Far from being dated, these are the kind of stories that lead children on flights of fancy. This volume includes stories from Rudyard Kipling, Mark Twain, Frances Hodgson Burnett, L. Frank, Baum, and other famous authors, as well as lesser known authors, who wrote entertaining stories for boys and girls. This hardback volume would make an excellent birthday or Christmas gift. It’s bound to be an heirloom that your children will want to read to their own children. Whether you choose to make bedtime a delight or read these stories snuggled with your children on the couch, these stories are sure to transport boys and girls into once upon a time.

Now get thee to our order page and get this great title, plus Queen Zixi of Ix and The National Review Treasury of Classic Bedtime Stories, all for only $29.95. What a deal! Order here .

People Are Losing Their Minds Over Starbucks

We can all easily imagine circumstances in which a manager of a coffee shop or restaurant might properly call the police to ask them to remove loiterers. These are places of business.

The Dark Side of the Starbucks Stand-Down

By now the story is all over America. Earlier this month, two black men entered a Starbucks store in Philadelphia.
