Reading

I am increasingly convinced of the necessity and power of books to build knowledge, evoke emotion, and stimulate moral reasoning in a well-written, handsomely published, and engaging manner.  Whether you’re a parent wanting to spend more time reading aloud as a family or hoping to supplement your child’s education with some worthwhile reading, or whether you are looking to bolster your homeschool curriculum, there is a wealth of wonderful books and helpful information. Here are some resources by way of lists, enthusiasts, publishers, and other book sources.

The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown. I loved this story even before we had kids. It’s a beautiful illustration of the lengths a mother will go to in loving her child. A great picture of God’s love for us. (toddler to lower elementary)
