Our family in Twenty-seven years of homeschooling has read a lot of books.
Reading books, listening to books, and writing books have been the glue that has kept our family fresh in thinking. If you haven’t already, make reading a focal point in your homeschool now!
In my experience, reading has helped me to stay centered and not lose my mind while homeschooling.
