Book reviews

"We're midway through the second week of our school year and are using Artfully Teaching the Faith, alternating it with hands-on art instruction. This was the first week using Artfully Teaching the Faith, and wow! We covered "The Creation of Adam" by Michelangelo, and I got a lesson on the symbolism Michelangelo used in that fresco! This was an inexpensive book (artwork itself is not included, but there are links to them), and based on what I've seen of it, I recommend it. I intend to use it throughout our homeschooling years." Moderator of the Ora Et Labora Catholic homeschooling forum
