As I’m wrapping up our homeschool year, I’m realizing what a great reading year it was for our family! In addition to our nightly family read-alouds, my kids did a lot of independent reading, and we also had wonderful success with the living books we wove into our history and science studies this year. In this article, I’ll share some of our top favorites. I hope you’ll find some new ideas here to incorporate into your homeschool!
