Treasures of the Snow - Literature Guide!

{Get your free literature guide at the end of this post!}

Have you read, Treasures of the Snow by Patricia St. John? We learned about it from the My Father's World: Creation to the Greeks curriculum we are using this year. This book is full of meaningful lessons and illustrates bearing the Fruits of the Spirit as the main characters choose to walk in Jesus' ways toward the end of the story.

Lately, I have been working on refining the literature guide format for our book club discussions. One goal was to streamline the material. Another goal was to have the kids put into practice applying the Principle Approach® method. This allows the kids to be more independently involved with the research, reason and relating aspects.

We went through some of the guide in our group but we didn't make it through to the end of the book due to time constraints. However, the discussions we did have were rich. We mothers 

decided we'd like our kids to apply the method at home and have them bring their prepared notes to the meetings for discussions. So, maybe that will help with time flow.

See the horse? I found it at Michael's Craft Store! I don't want to give any spoilers about the book but the horse ties in perfectly with the story and it's to serve as a reminder. Each family went home with a horse and the idea is that each family can work on decorating it together

Our family chose to write the title of the book on one side of the horse.

And on the other side, we wrote Bible verse references and words pertaining to lessons we each walked away with.

I hope you enjoy reading Treasures of the Snow and applying the 4R's method to it for deep, enriching discussions!
