     Anna's new favorite hobby is dressing the twins up and making them pose for pictures.  I'll hear her giving orders like, " OK, I want you to stand right here. Now kiss.  OK, Samuel, I want you to look stern. Put your hands on your hips like this."  and so on.  It's pretty funny.  Today she said Samuel was Henry II, because "he wasn't a bad king".  I loved it.  How many American eight year olds even know who Henry II was, much less what kind of a ruler he was.  I love Our Island Story for this.  It really connects children to the story in a way that very few history books do.  Living books are the only way to teach history in my opinion!
