Just finished...

I hope to get more thorough reviews written up for love2learn in the near future on these two books...

Animal Farm
by George Orwell - I finished reading this for our teen discussion last night - but the discussion was canceled at the last moment due to poor road conditions. It's an interesting little book, a very accessible classic for upper grade school or early high school. Lots of fodder for discussion; don't expect to agree with the author entirely.

The Story of Benedict XVI for Young People by Claire Jordan Mohan - a nice story that overviews his childhood and gives you a good sense of his personality and his upbringing. Worthwhile and lots of good content, but I tend to find the author's writing style distracting.
