This is a new book we have start, I, Juan de Pareja. Read the first chapter today that explains how he started out as a slave and was inherited by Valezquez. We are using this to not only study Velazquez for artist study but also about slavery. The first chapter was very good. We are taking a break from the Little House Series to read this one then back to the series. We started the Little House books last year and tend to read 2-3 a school year. Hopefully we will finish them all in another year.
