I'm not a big classicist. On that tug-of-war of the Western world between Romanticism and the Classical, I plant my feet firmly on the side of the Romantics. I have to admit that, at least right now, we look to be on the losing end of this struggle, ...more

My mom and I read this aloud to each other when I was in 4th grade, and now my wife Melissa and I repeated this tradition with our 6-year old.... He may have been a little young for it. There are some pretty graphic fight scenes between dog and coon, ...more
Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls
"One of those books where the dogs die. It's great, you'll love it, right up until the ending, and then you'll bawl your eyes out. It's tradition. "

I am not much of a mystery fan. Our family was given this book as a Christmas present, at least in part because our kids were adopted, and my wife and I read this in bed at night to our six year old. To be honest, I'm still not much of a mystery fan. ...more

My 6-year old son loved this story. We would listen to it while driving around town. There is a lot of suffering and selfishness and death, but the ending is very sweet, and my son eagerly followed along with it all, yelling at the stereo whenever so ...more

“This life therefore is not righteousness, but growth in righteousness, not health, but healing, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not yet what we shall be, but we are growing toward it, the process is not yet finished, but it is going on, this is not the end, but it is the road. All does not yet gleam in glory, but all is being purified.”
