Favorite Authors

I thought I'd take a moment and share this list I've been compiling of our favorite authors. 
Of course, it's not complete, but I'll add onto it as others come to mind.

I've tried to link each author up to either their own website or another site where you can see a partial or complete list of their works.

Composer and Artist Study

Mike Venezia (composer and artist biographies)
Opal Wheeler (composer biographies)
Anna Harwell Celenza (composer stories based on famous works)

Science/Nature Study (Please be aware that books in the Let's Read and Find Out Science series sometimes contain evolutionary or old-earth references. It's a great series, so we just use those opportunities to discuss and reaffirm the truths of Creation found in the Bible.)
