Sir N and I just completed this beautifully written historical novel on the birth of the country  Switzerland.  It is the famous story of William Tell. It is a well written story that is personable and engaging.  It's a wonderful account of a boy and his father the hero. This book won the Newbery Honor Medal in 1952.

I found a FREE unit study for the Apple and the Arrow over at Homeschool Share. Rainbow Resources also has a unit study available for purchase.

 Welcome to Tuesdays Treasures.  I started these posts as a way of sharing great books in honour of my friend in New Zealand who would arrive with the treasures she had unearthed at her weekly trip to the library!

There are so many wonderful books out there hiding on shelves so I invite you to blog about a book on your shelf, one you're reading or one you found at the library. Grab the button for your post and add a link to your post below. I would love to read about your treasures. 


  1. The Apple & the Arrow was a book we discovered when considering the Sonlight curriculum. It still has a treasured place on our shelves.

    1. I have enjoyed it both times we have read it too :) Sadly it is no longer a part of Sonlight
