    Definitely a book worth reading!

    I was so excited to get this book in my hands and it did not disappoint. For so many Christians who feel guilty about sending their kids to the public schools, even though they know it is where they need to be, this is a very helpful and encouraging book. I am so thankful for the Pritchard's and their willingness to write this much needed book.
