Homeschooling Must Reads

Posted on

Books…..Books…..and more BOOKS!!!!

I think I may have an addiction to books regarding homeschooling. Here recently I have been on a shopping spree of some very wonderful books and now I’m trying to figure out which one to read first. Most normal people buy one book at a time….well not me. I just get SUPER passionate about learning more about the whole homeschool world that I go NUT-SO for great books. Several co-op moms have recommended some books that helped me during the “Homeschool Blues” phase of this school year. These books really sparked my passion for Classical and Charlotte Mason homeschooling and I wanted to share them with you so that you may too fall in love.

Some of these books I have read and then there are those waiting to be read on my bookshelf!!!

Aside from books there are Podcasts that I have recently been made aware of and listen to quite often. I usually turn a podcast on while I fold laundry or during a long drive. Podcasts are a way of encouragement and a peek into other mommas lives that either have learned from experience or in the journey with us still learning! All of these podcasts below are available on itunes.
