P.O.P. Nature Study: Bibliomania

Bibliomania ~ page 185

This chapter of Pocketful of Pinecones by Karen Andreola finds us in the month of July, the family getting comfortably, busily situated into life at Blackberry Inn.

The family picks and cans the ripe strawberries.


While exploring her new home, Carol finds the study to be filled with books from floor to ceiling. She is delighted. Some of the books mentioned are:

Several books on Nature some which are listed in the back of P.O.P. for those who have Karen's book.

Karen writes: "Books are the backbone of the homeschool. Many a mother enjoys a free hour to scan the shelves of a used bookstore for inexpensive treasures that will be put to good use---books for herself as well as for her children."

Here is a verse to write in your nature notebooks:


"Gather ye rose-buds while ye may,

Old Time is still a flying;

And this same flower that smiles today

Tomorrow will be dying."---Robert Herrick
