On this page I will list the titles of the books that we read aloud, grouped within their historical time-frame. Even once my kids are capable of reading for themselves, read alouds remain a mainstay in our school. They provide us with a common ground for discussion and projects and enable the kids to offer more constructive suggestions on each other's work. Other books that we use for other subjects, such as science and art, and think will be useful to other homeschoolers will also be listed here. As books are reviewed in blog posts, a link will be created to them--just click on the title to leap to the review post.
