Books are a wonderful way to engage your children and give them access to a world otherwise unknown. We love using novels as an interesting way to introduce our children to a culture or location. Through the use of story they can come to learn about and love other cultures, lands, and history.
Britfield & the Lost Crown by C.R. Stewart is the first book in a series of five adventure novels meant to transport children (and adults) into the suspenseful world of orphans Tom and Sarah.
