YA GEM OF THE MONTH:
Cheaper By the Dozen, by Frank B. Gilbreth, Jr, and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey

Are your teens beginning writers?
The Denim Beret is an online program that seeks to serve the needs of teens and preteens who are ready to master the art of non-fiction writing. I offer both structured lessons and project-based mentoring for both homeschoolers and non-homeschoolers. Please browse my website for more information!
