Today, Mystie and I are daring you to be brave and read a classic, even if you don’t feel like you’re qualified. We tackle questions like why we feel intimidated by reading classic books, what are strategies for helping ourselves read them, and a whole lot more.
In addition, our nitty gritty homeschool question is all about starting Latin, so you won’t want to miss it.
