I love the Christian Liberty Nature Readers. They are better than most typical readers, in my opinion. Very interesting, good drawings, well written, and more detail on each topic (crabs, ants, spiders) than usual.
The one E is reading has a section on spiders. When she finished the previous section and saw that spiders were coming up, she approached me with her sweet, scared little face (all a put-on). "I don't want to read about spiders! It's going to scare me!" she whined.
Oh my. She's good at that. I suggested that maybe reading about spiders will lessen her fear of them. Oh no, she assured me. That would never happen.
Well, she will make sure it won't.
