Homeschooling Books We Love

One of my biggest challenges with homeschooling is finding books that are genuinely interesting while also being educational. I can’t tell you how many times we get a bunch of books from the library and all but one are duds.

Now, I know that every kid is different and likes different things. Currently, my daughter would be considered somewhere between 1st and 3rd grade, depending on the day/person you ask/subject/etc… She is an amazing reader, but we struggle to find books that interest her, though this is improving with age.
