The Spring 2010 issue is arriving in mailboxes as I write. This issue includes a great unit study on learning about world geography with little kids (altho the unit would work with older siblings, too!) while the articles carry-through the theme of picture books and the wonder within childhood.
Of special note, is a wonderful review of my book, In His Image. Check it out and let me know what you think ... and if you haven't subscribed yet, what are you thinking? mater-et-magistra is the ONLY Catholic homeschool magazine published and is well-worth the subscription price. I write the quarterly column on handcrafts ... but there are always great articles with teaching tips, resource suggestions, and supportive stories to "educate the heart and the mind of the Catholic home". There is always a pull-out unit study as well as reviews of wonderful books for young and old.
