    I’m a mom of three boys.  7, almost 5, and 14mo.  I homeschool my 7 year old and my almost five yr old goes to preschool at a local church.  So, my oldest gets a lot of attention and my baby gets a lot of attention too.  Some days I can juggle it all well and my middle gets good quality time too but often times he doesn’t.  For that I think he’s jealous of his baby brother and can be a little too rough with him.  Sometimes I think it’s just out of love and excitement for him others I think it’s jealousy.  Anyways, that being said I’m looking for books to instill a defender of the weak mentality / you are a protector to my middle boy but also my older although he’s already very protective!  Is there any good books out there that would be appropriate to show heros defending/protecting others?  Or any other good ideas to help him learn gentleness?  And what about consequences for lack of gentleness?  I just don’t want him to feel more secluded by the consequence.  Well, this may all sound like rambling but if you can offer advice/books I’d greatly appreciate it.

    I am not sure what the series is called, but there is a series similar to American Girls. We Read The Journal Of Jonathan Jasper about a boy that was a bond servant on the mayflower around Thanksgiving. It might be called Dear America? I will try to look it up and repost.

    Okay, the series is called My Name Is America. My son loves them since he is sick of all the American Girls books I read to his sister.
