About us


Glory and Praise to God! We are grateful for the opportunity to present to you our BRAND NEW WEB SITE. The image of our Lady that you see is a copy of Boticelli's Madonna del Libre-quite fitting! We love books and finding books that open the doors to a child's heart, soul and imagination!

It is a comfort to have Our Lady watching over us...just as she watched over Our Lord while he was growing.

We are also thankful to God for the many blessings we continually receive as our little family business continues to grow as does our family. Stephen Vincent our youngest, who was born on the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, a.k.a. Our Lady of Victory, is now sixteen. Our oldest sons Peter and Andrew, both homeschool graduates, have graduated from Christendom College, and are gainfully employed, working in fields they love. Andrew got married this past summer and we added a beautiful daughter, Maggie, to the family.

WOW!! Time does go fast as we watch each child mature and leave the nest.

Our third oldest Martin graduated from Thomas Aquinas College and is finishing his second degree in Biology from University of Delaware. Anne, the oldest girl, comes next in age and is a senior at Christendom College. She spent a glorious semester in Rome, interned at a local history museum and looks forward to life after college. Julia, the next in line is loving every minute at Christendom college as a freshman. She is running a young writer's group, honing her skills and growing in her faith.The younger two, Elizabeth and Stephen, both are in high school, homeschool around our dining room table, take on-line classes and joined the local Civil Air Patrol.  

We savor every day with them, even the days that prove to be difficult and challenging.

Our family business is here to serve the needs of families just like us! It is grounded in our desire to pass on the joy, experience, and love of homeschooling from these past 23 years! The effort has been tremendous, yet the benefits innumerable. With each year's passing we have gained confidence and experience in our own ability to tailor our curriculum to each child, focusing on age appropriate materials that teach the children how to think. We too have been educated in the process. We too have grown in our faith. Most importantly, Larry and I have grown in knowing the hearts of our children.

Enjoy your time here and more importantly enjoy your children. They truly are a gift from God.

We look forward to your suggestions for improvement and book requests.

 God Bless,

Lawrence and Paola, Peter, Andrew and Maggie, Martin, Anne, Julia, Elizabeth & Stephen Ciskanik
