Has your child come home from school yet and said, “My teacher wants us to make a family tree?” It’s been a while since my boys have had to develop a family tree. However, I remember oh so well trying to determine how Cousin Morgan was connected to Grandma Lula. And discovering that Uncle Steve’s real name was Theo.A family tree can be full of many intelligent and wacky members. It’s interesting sharing these stories with our children. So how do you begin? How about having your child read a book with a family related theme?
I recently read a book titled, The Five Lost Aunts of Harriet Bean, by Alexander McCall Smith. Harriet discovers that she has aunts she’s never met. Today I am a guest blogger at The Family that reads together. Click here to read more about the topic of family history and ideas for teaching your child about family history.
