Review

For a Video Review from Home Educating Family, go to the Laurie J. White Amazon author page.


"In my 26 years of homeschooling, I have rarely found a book like yours; full of godly, interesting information and presented in such an engaging way. Going through your book with my children is something we still talk about together. I just wanted you to know that I am recommending this book to all of my readers as a MUST for advanced (high school) language arts." --Sherry Hayes  largefamilymothering.com

Author Laurie J. White's book King Alfred's English is enlightening, entertaining, and easy to read about the origin and history of the English language, from the Latin influence of the Romans in Britain, through Anglo-Saxon Old English,  Middle English after the Norman Invasion, Early Modern English of Queen Elizabeth I and King James, to Contemporary English.  King Alfred's English is both accurate and pleasurable reading.
--Dr. Wes Davis, Professor of English, Dalton State College
