Books to read aloud.

Your magazine is one of our favorite magazines.

Good Old Days magazine is full of articles homeschooling families may enjoy. Some of the advertisements leave a bit to be desired, but they are easily pulled out of the center before the children view the contents.

When our daughter was home and homeschooled, we did a lot of reading in the winter months. (Some of the following are written from a Christian perspective and others are not. I have them separated below.)

Good books we have read together out loud as a family:

* (Best of?) Reminisce (hardboundby publishers of Reminisce Magazine)

* The books by Laura Ingalls Wilder (i.e., Little House in the Big Woods)

* The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis

* Little Britches and the others in the series by Ralph Moody

* Billy and Blaze

* Mr. Small books

* Mike Mulligan and the Steam Shovel

* Ferdinand the Bull

* All of the Lois Lenski books

* The Country Kitchen by Della Lutes

* The Story of the Trapp Family Singers by Maria Augusta Trapp

* Eighty Acres by Ronald Jager Books form a Christian perspective:

* Sensie by Russell T. Hitt

* Jungle Pilot by Nate Saint

* The Savage My Kinsman, Through Gates of Splendor, The Shadow of the Almighty all by Elisabeth Elliot

* First We Have Coffee and Lena by Margaret Jensen

Good books for homeschoolers or possible homeschoolers (even adults wanting to learn on their own):

* The Way Home by Mary Pride

* The Successful Homeschool Family Handbook by Raymond and Dorothy Moore (Formerly entitled Homeschool Burnout if you look for a used copy.)
