  1. Thank you so much for this. I absolutely love this type of thing. I'm a very visual thinker and can imagine those *old* ways and *days*.

  2. Love this book–had it already on my Kindle from Gutenburg Project and have read through it many times.  It's lovely and inspiring.  Thank you so much for these awesome freebies every day–we have saved so much money in curriculum by using your website!

  3. What a wonderful find – thank you kindly!
    (But you know and know well that the possessive "its" has no apostrophe – do we add an apostrophe to "his" or "hers"? Never –  only the contraction of "it is". As a member of the Apostrophe Protection Society, I ask you to please correct. Thanks!)

  4. I am looking forward to the quietness of the evening after the kids are tucked in to savor the e-pages of this one!  Thank you!
