She lives with her two sons, a flock of chickens, a Miniature Schnauzer named Sophie, and the most recent addition a goat named Marmaduke.

Review:

Written at a 3rd-5th grade reading level, it was a quick and easy read. I think it would work perfectly for a read-aloud for my 1st grader. In fact, I think it will go-along great with our row of Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel. It will be a great way to introduce the concept of steam power and it will be a wonderful review of the countries we have studied! Delightful Learning Blog

I will say that from the beginning, my 8 year old has LOVED this book. She took it with her on vacation and to her friend's house so that they could read parts of it together. She loves anything with great imagination and she was enthralled with the idea that Munford can travel all over the world and all through time as a water drop. Jenilee @ Our Goodwin Journey Blog

One of many things that I liked about the book as a homeschool mother is that that each chapter has the potential to springboard into many conversations. Possibly even unit studies. In addition to geography, there is history, science, and plenty of little tidbits of interesting information that are sure to leave an impression. Our Village Is A Little Different Blog

We began using it as a read-aloud, and found it enjoyable. It was easy to read (it's written at an elementary reading level) with short chapters, so I could fit a little in here and there for school breaks. Then I just let my children finish the book. While very simple for the older children to read, it had enough detailed and new information in it for them. They commented several times how well-written it was, and how naturally the learning was woven in to the story. The younger children were just completely captivated by the adventures of the cute little water droplet. --The Cardamoms Pod Blog

The Adventures of Munford series is a set of historical fiction books which view history through the eyes of a water molecule named Munford. Yes, a water molecule. This makes perfect sense since water cycles in various forms and is present in every time period. Why didn t I think of this? What a clever way to transport readers back in time. Munford brings children along on his travels, teaching geography, history, science and more. The Homeschool Village

When we received the set of books in the mail, McKenna walked off with the books and started reading them right away. She is currently reading the third book in the series and really enjoying them! We know she is absorbing the info, because we constantly hear about Munford during the day. --Homeschool Creations Blog
