This month was farms.  Considering we live on a farm and have done all things farm related with the boys, I took a different route with our book selection.  I ended up picking out 2 different books.

The first book was Pirates on the Farm
by Denette Fretz


This was such a touching story about a family with pirates as neighbors.  This book is full of pirates shearing sheep and harvesting corn with swords, animals walking the plank, and fish stew for their neighbors!!  Due to the damages caused by the pirates, they were asked to leave if they couldn't pay the charges.  The pirates neighbors came to the rescue and used their stash to pay the pirates debt.

We talked about being neighborly.  We talked about everyone is our neighbor.  I read him the Parable of the Sower.  

And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?” And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.”                ~Luke 10:25-27



Some pictures of my little man made up as a pirate.  This was from a dinner theater we did in Myrtle Beach this past February.



The next story we read was The Farmer
by Mark Ludy


This is such a touching story about a farmer we had to give up 2 of his best friends after horrible things happened in his life.  He never forgot to pray though.  God provided for his every needs.  In the end, the farmer runs to help his neighbors with a field fire.  He shows much humility when he shares his food with them so that they wouldn't starve through the winter.  By doing this, he got his cow and pig back.  We love this book!!
