Who I Am
I am a homeschool mom of 4 girls, ranging in ages from 3-11. Our first experience with Thornton W. Burgess books was when my first daughter was in kindergarten. We started reading “The Adventures of Reddy Fox” and from that point we fell in love with all the woodland characters portrayed in these stories. I searched the web for ways to incorporate the valuable moral lessons found in the books, as well as the obvious study of animals and their habitats. I couldn’t find anything that suited my needs, so I opted to create this website for anyone who wants to instill the love of animals and classic literature in their children.
This site is truly a labor of love for me. I update and add information as I have time to do the research. Sometimes you may not see new pages for months and I do apologize for that! My dear husband and I have spent the last 3 years renovating an 1891 Queen Anne Victorian and this project takes up most of my free time aside from homeschooling. Please be patient as I continue to build up this website into a resource exploding with information and ideas. I have so many exciting things to share about Thornton Burgess and all his animal characters, I just need to get them out of my head and onto this site. Blessings to you on your own journey of seeking out the best education for your child!
