:thoughts on homeschool // current reads:

i am constantly searching the internet for book recommendations for my young readers. i delight in good book list. so i thought i'd share a few of our current reads to inspire you.

these are books that i read aloud to the children as they do some type of art project or before bed snuggled on the couch.

The Courage of Sarah Noble 
a short book about young Sarah Noble and her adventure of traveling with her father at age eight and living with an indian family for a short time. we are all about books that inspire bravery in our young ones and this one did the trick.

The Story of Squanto: First Friend to the Pilgrims
this book follows the journey of Squanto, a young indian boy that was taken captive by the englishmen. He later became friends and a peacemaker between the indian tribes and early settlers.

Changes for Kaya
another great story of a little one that is faced with fear but chooses courage.

Strawberry Girl
we haven't started this one yet but it follows a family settling in florida and their passion for their strawberry crop in the midst of heat and droughts.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Horse and His Boy
we finished the lion, the witch and the wardrobe during the summer and are very excited to continue in this series!

what are you currently reading? 


  1. i remember some of these from elementary school and i love the sweet innocent childhood memories they bring! we are reading the Wingfeather Saga, by Andrew Peterson, to our little Hunter. he loves it!

  2. Right now im reading the Hobbit and Five Little Peppers aloud to my kids. We just finished Eight Cousins which was a wonderful story as well.


words are like honey, sweet to my soul, so feel free to share yours.
