"Thought breeds thought; children familiar with great thoughts take as naturally to thinking for themselves as the well-nourished body takes to growing; and we must bear in mind that growth, physical, intellectual, moral, spiritual, is the sole end of education." ~ Charlotte Mason

Book Sharing Monday: The Bridge by Jeri Massi

 There's a little bit of everything in this book for everyone:  castles, knights, a princess, danger, plots, and courage.  This book has been a huge hit in our home.  A young, spoiled princess must help save her kingdom and her people.  Up until events turn the kingdom into an uproar the Princess has lived in security, being pampered, unaware of how much work and courage it takes to run a Kingdom.  Forced to flee her castle after it was taken captive by a wicked man, the young princess must face the reality that running a kingdom, is not just about a title but about about strength of character.  It's about doing the right thing in the face of danger.  It's about loyalty even to the death!  And of course about the timeless battle between good and evil, right and wrong!

This book is the first in the Bracken Trilogy.  My children literally begged for me to read this little treasure.  We did it as a read a loud and they were lost in the story, waiting for the next scene to unfold.  They didn't want me to put it down and quite frankly neither did I!  I even read through the next chapter after I put the kids to bed!  Shhhh don't tell them though! lol   We will read the next two books as well and we'll re-read this one.  It was THAT good. :)
