In my work with The Old Schoolhouse Magazine over the past several years, I’ve come in contact with various book publishers that I’ve come to know, trust, and love. Kregel is one of those publishers.
Many of our Crew members have received a copy of Bertie’s War – a new title from Kregel. Barbara Tifft Blakey’s name is familiar in the homeschool arena, as she is also the author of the Total Language Plus series.
No matter how hard she tries to do and say the right thing, Bertie keeps tumbling into embarrassing–and sometimes dangerous–situations. Her stern father has too many rules, her know-it-all sister won’t stop teasing her, and her mischievous younger brother keeps getting into trouble. But what makes her really afraid are those Communist missiles pointed right at the U.S. As Bertie starts seventh grade in the fall of 1962, news of these missiles throws the nation into a panic and Bertie suddenly feels completely out of control. Can Bertie confront an ugly truth about herself and face her fears–once and for all?
Please take the time to visit Kregel’s website and check out all the great books they have available. Then, check back to see what the Crew members have to say about Bertie’s War.
