  1. Donna, Thanks for sharing. I love history and these books look like great reads for children.

  2. Donna, what exciting and interesting books for youngsters!

  3. I'm going to review the first book by Nancy Sanders you listed too. I can't wait to read it.

  4. Very good list. I am really interested in the one on May 7th, Under the Night Quilt. It will fit in with my research on the Civil War Era. Nancy Sanders books are both so good. I have read them both. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Hello Ladies:
