For the first time, M1 shows excitement, and looks forward to another homeschool day. All because of the book, The Glorious Flight: Across the English Channel with Louis Bleriot July 25, 1909 by Alice & Martin Provensen.
He loves it for the fact that it has airplanes in it, nevermind that they were primitive. It does make him smile that an image of Bleriot XI is also in our encyclopedia. But he also appreciated the onomatopoeia, Clacketa! Clacketa! And the funny way the story was narrated.
I can only be too glad it's a great story of perseverance.
It's our 3rd book with a setting in France (Madeleine, Crictor), so we'll be playing French music also, Putumayo: French Playground. Ooh, and Renoir! Don't forget Renoir, or Monet! Perhaps I should also have a French meal served, non? M2 wants to try escargot, and I tell him, go tell Lolo D when you're in Manila.
