Christian Family Resources - Part 12 - The Barn Chronicles

Over the last few years, I have come across some great resources for families, churches, small 
groups, mentoring, or self-study. 

I would like to introduce you to The Barn Chronicles

Rosie Boom is a wife and homeschooling mother of 6.  She is a writer and speaks at conferences and events around New Zealand.  This series focuses on life, it is a very organic and homely (in a very good way) adventure in the lives of a family who make a barn a home for a number of years.  The books are written from the perspective of one of the children, Milly, who is adventurous, heroic, tender, sometimes even a little bit stroppy, but always very likeable. 

These books are about life, they are not glitzy, flashy or unrealistic. Although not many of us get to live in a barn on a fantastic farm/lifestyle block. Rosie Boom relays life with it's tears, challenges, a huge amount of hilarity, many animals, imagination and a few broken bones thrown in the mix.  My boys often giggle at the tales and fun antics that go on in the unfolding drama of life at the Boom's place.  The place they imagine as their slice of Narnia.

This series appeals to both boys and girls alike.

I highly recommend this series
