If you struggle with teaching history or are simply looking for some new techniques to help make your children’s experience of history a better one, The Catholic Educator’s Guide to Teaching History is worth reading.
The Woman in the Trees is a story of the apparition, but also the story of a community and family dynamics. The pain and trials of these immigrants is tangible. Adele’s struggles to share the Good News are also realistically portrayed. This is a wonderful story for a family read aloud or for older children, teens, or adults to read on their own. It is appropriate for ages 10 and up.
