I believe that one of the main goals of Homeschooling is to make your children lovers of excellent reading. I used to say “lovers of books.” However, there is a plethora of poor and even evil reading available and even being read in Christian homes these days. I know that you are looking for
good excellent reading for your children and family.
I was so thrilled to share the Wisdom and The Millers books with you through my giveaway. This morning I was speaking to Kris, who sponsored the giveaway, and by the way, you can still order all the Wisdom and The Millers books, Character Companion, Coloring Books, and Workbooks from her (firstname.lastname@example.org), and we were talking about great books which have blessed our families so much, which many young moms and Homeschoolers have never heard of–Wisdom and The Millers being one! I thought I’d share with you just a few titles, authors and series, which have been excellent reading for us.
These come immediately to mind (the first are for middle children or to read aloud to younger):
All of the Pansy Collection by Isabella Alden
Wisdom and The Millers Series
Childhood of Famous Americans Series
The Lamplighter Books
Lois Ehlert (for small children)
Gene Stratton Porter (older children will love all her books)
Stories of Great Christians (audio stories)
Elisabeth Elliot (some as family read-alouds, and some for middle children up to adults)
Patricia St. John (some books have also been made into movies, such as “Treasures of the Snow”)
Books for Fall and Thanksgiving Reading:
A book I love to read at this time of year is “Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf” by Lois Ehlert. Her books are so colorful, and great for preschoolers and K-2nd especially. But I love them, too!
With Thanksgiving coming soon, here are some recommendations I have shared before (click on the link to see some great book recommendations):
Thanks for reading Faith’s Firm Foundation!
