Hereward the Wake

My 13 year old daughter just finished reading Charles Kingsley's Hereward the Wake, 'Last of the English'' and wanted to share her thoughts about the book on her blog. It is recommended in Ambleside's HEO year 7 booklist. If you were thinking about using this book and wondering what it was about you can read her review here. You can find more reviews about various HEO books in my sidebar. I find it interesting that my daughters like to post these reviews on their blogs. It indicates to me that they are enjoying their books and feel a need to respond due to the enthusiasm the literature generates in their hearts. I like that. I really like that.

  1. Hello! Can you recommend any good sites for identifying European trees and wildflowers? I have been searching around, and I'm just not finding much. I went to the link that you had on your nature blog, and it's great!

  2. Hello,
    I found your blog from Jocelyn Dixon. I have a question for you. How did you add another page(about Lindafay, ect.) to you blog. I cannot find how to do it. Could you help me. Savannah

    WOW! You should be very proud of your daughter - she reviews better than some adults! I may have to tackle the book myself. Billie Jean
