- Love this series by Debra on 8/14/2014
Get to Know Mary, by Nancy I Sanders, is the third book in this series that I've acquired. Like the others in this series, the book contains a dozen chapters, mostly in the range of 8 pages each. I love that they are easily read in one sitting, without stressing out young readers.
Like the other books in the series, this contains wonderful photos of things like mangers, figs and present-day views of some ancient places. It contains fabulous maps of things like The Roman Empire. There is great art included as well.
With this book, I started reading it aloud to myself. Yeah, that felt a bit silly, but I was trying to get a better feel for the complexity of the sentences, and my kids just haven't been game to read any of these aloud to me. "It's faster to read it myself, Mom!" is what I get from them. (I did, by the way, make them both read a paragraph or two to me. Then I let them go.)
What I found was that there definitely are some big words, but at least for my kids, the context makes it fairly straight-forward. Maybe if they were less familiar with the overall story, they would struggle a bit more. Mostly it is the names that trip them up.
These biographies are amazing. That's my bottom line.
I definitely recommend them.
