... do go visit Hilda van Stockum's website and sign the Guest Book.
I received a lovely, gracious note (in the comments of a past post) from Mrs. van Stockum's son, John Tepper Marlin. As he notes, we should all be grateful to Bethlehem Books for keeping her work alive.
When I think of the joy and beauty we would have missed had these books gone out of print, I'm saddened. Publishing may be too often driven by dollars these days, but our family is most grateful for those publishers who seek out quality work, then work hard to keep it alive and accessible to all of us.
And we are grateful to the many writers and artists who enrich our homeschooling lives beyond measure.
