Just Plain Nora Book Review

A few months ago I ran across a blog referring to a great new Christian book series for children and one of the books in the series was called Just Plain Nora. Right away I knew that we would be interested.  I have a little girl names Nora and she is always vying for my attention. I love trying to show her attention in good ways because I end up giving her too much negative attention. She is the worst wiggle worm but I am learning to deal with this in positive ways. I think that most of all she just likes to touch and hug and feel special like a princess.
This book by Jennifer Hutchins focuses on what it was like for a girl of around 10 to grow up in a frontier family and feel that she was considered ordinary and plain and even insignificant. The story was a joy to read with my older girl Zoi who is 8 and even my sons Zeke and Zeb appreciated the time spent reading this tale.
The author has a background in education/language development and has taught oral and written language since 1996 and home schools her two daughters. I love it when I can read something to my children that has their hearts in mind as home schoolers on this journey life.

To can find the book here,
