Our Homeschool Bookshelf:: Ginger Pye

Welcome to my Our Homeschool Bookshelf series. I'm sharing with my readers some of my favorite books from our homeschool bookshelf.  My intent is to share resources that I have found valuable that may also help someone else in their journey of educating their children. 


One of my children's all time favorite books is Ginger Pye by Eleanor Estes. This book was first introduced to us during our second Sonlight Core. For many years after we read the book, stories about Ginger Pye would pop up in conversations, as if they were recounting an event that had happened to an old friend. {sweet}


Ginger Pye is the story of two children and their new puppy. It's full of tales about the brilliant puppy's adventures and clever things that he would do. That is, until Ginger Pye (the puppy) disappeared. Yes, disappeared!

The tale of the children searching for their puppy- and their certainty that he was kidnapped– unfolds mysteriously. We were all captivated by the story and were just certain that Jerry would find his puppy again. None of us could wait to hear what would happen next…


But you'll have to read it for yourself to find out. {grin}


My older children loved this book so much that when I read the book to younger their sisters last year, they found some reason for needing to do their work in the same room we were reading in. Yes, the high schoolers had to listen in— even though they remembered the whole book.


And of course, when we finished the last page, there were cries of,


"Can we read it again?! Please?"


Do yourself a favor. Grab yourself a cup of tea and get comfy. Read Ginger Pye to your children.
