I got this great book out of the library. Historical fiction, all three boys can read it, it explains about American History and the minutemen. I had it in the house for weeks, all of them refused to read it and said it was boring. I gave it to K, and she also declined.
I'm off to return it and I'm giving myself a little pep talk that when they are interested in the American Revolution, they'll learn about it.
A lot of made-to-be-educational materials don't go over that well here. They are already out of duct tape and almost out of stuffing, though.
