Against the Tide: A Curriculum Guide To Raise Virtuous Children in Today's World (Elementary Level) Review by Lisa Barthuly & Family

Generations of Virtue has created a valuable resource for parents in this curriculum guide for children in the 3-10 age range.
Don't be fooled by the title. This is not a curriculum guide in the traditional sense (the 3 Rs). Rather, this is a guide to the wonderful resources that are available to help you raise Godly, virtuous children . . . and after all, isn't that what really matters? Of course!

Raising virtuous children in today's culture is a huge task. This book is full of wonderful resources that can help you accomplish that task.

The spiral bound, 35-page guide gives descriptions and approximate age ranges for each recommended book, along with lists of suggested reading for parents and a web link that allows the purchaser to access updates for years to come!

I was so pleased to see that we already have some of the recommended books on our shelves, and I can't wait to read the other suggested titles. What a treasure this book is!
