Nancy Nicholson is one of the founding authors of Catholic Heritage Curricula. Equipped with an abundance of God-given talent, a major in Secondary Education–English, and years of experience homeschooling her own children, she has written over thirty educational titles, beginning with Little Stories for Little Folks. Her unique ability to develop programs and workbooks that “fit” both advanced and struggling students is due to her experience raising children of different ability levels and learning styles: two of her children are developmentally challenged, while another went on to graduate from Harvard and is now a college professor.

The Devotional Stories series is by far the most easy to relate to, engaging, family-centered stories that teach morals, that we have ever read. My children love them and continually ask me to read them over and over again. Unlike some other children's books, I never grow tired of them either!

My son and I especially enjoy Devotional Stories for Little Folks (both books). Unlike his sisters, reading isn't his strongest or favorite subject. He and I love snuggling up with these books though. The stories are very relatable for a second-grader. It seems we almost always reference them through our everyday life occurrences.

One of my twins decided to make his additional Lenten practice to play more often with his little brother. I am sure this is an extension of the examples set by Seth and Meg in the Devotional Stories. They also no longer immediately groan when we ask them to watch their brother, take out the trash or do other little spontaneous chores.

I am thrilled that these books promote the Faith with both Scripture and Catechism references. I also like the clarity with which vocabulary words are presented and the wonderful comprehension questions at the end of each story.
