What I Read with the Kids: August 2018

A few months ago, I started keeping track of what the girls and I read aloud.  We’re always looking for good reading suggestions, so if you have any good kids’ books you could recommend, please leave a comment below.  Hopefully, some of the books we read will also give you ideas for books to read […]

The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls Book Four: Journey to Jericho – A Review and Giveaway

We read aloud A LOT in our homeschool, at least one to two hours every day.  One of our favorite series is The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls by M. J. Thomas.  Last year, we had the opportunity to review the first two books in The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls series–The Beginning and Race to the […]

Where I Find Good Reading Lists for My Elementary Students

I love to read, and when I was little, I always wanted my mom to read to me.  My mom was busy taking care of me and my brother who had cerebral palsy plus running a daycare out of her home.  When night came, she just wanted to relax, so once I learned to read, […]

What I Read with the Kids: July, 2018

Last month I started a new little feature–what I read aloud to the girls each month.  Cuddle Bug loves, loves, loves to be read to, and right now, that is how she is getting a lot of her schooling.  We’re also in the car for at least an hour a day, so we try to […]

Homeschool Crew Review: No Longer Little: Parenting Tweens with Grace and Hope

A work colleague once told me, there’s a reason God turns your sweet little toddler into a raging, hormone-fueled teenager–so you’ll be ready for them to leave the nest.  Indeed, navigating the tween and teen landscape can be difficult, but a new book by Great Waters Press, No Longer Little: Parenting Tweens with Grace and […]

Homeschool Crew Review – Love, Honor and Virtue Book

Having a teenage son in our current culture can be a scary experience.  Unsavory images and videos are available with the simple stroke of a few computer keys.  If you want to arm your child or tween in battle against pornography, you may want to consider listening to Hal and Melanie Young’s new book, Love, […]

What I Read with the Kids in June, 2018

I thought I’d start a new little feature–what we read each month.  Cuddle Bug loves, loves, loves to be read to, and right now, that is how she is getting a lot of her schooling.  We’re also in the car for at least an hour a day, so we try to listen to audio books […]

Isobel Kuhn: On the Roof of the World by Janet & Geoffe Benge – A Book Review

I had the idea that Cuddle Bug and I might also like to read some missionary stories together, but after about 80 pages, Cuddle Bug promptly and adamantly let me know that she had no interest in missionary stories.

Milton Hershey: More than Chocolate by Janet & Geoff Benge – A Book Review

When Bookworm was little and still in school, he did a report on Milton Hershey.  I don’t remember exactly what he learned except his main focus was on chocolate.  😉 This post contains affiliate links. So, when Cuddle Bug and I reached the point in our Heroes of History series to read Milton Hershey: More […]

You Need a Budget by Jesse Mecham: A Book Review

I have been reading a lot of fiction this year, but I also want to read some non-fiction that will help me grow and improve. This post contains affiliate links. Recently I read You Need a Budget by Jesse Mecham.  I’ve been a big fan of the YNAB budgeting software for over a year now, […]
