Literature Resources

 

Index:

Print Resources (purchase here or borrow from the library):

  • Childhood of Famous Americans. These books are my favorite biographies! They were published in the early 1900's. Many have been republished.

  • Easy Readers - History - These are great for teaching your child fluency. They are interesting and easy to read so they'll want to read more. I would use these at any age that your child finds them interesting.

  • Easy Readers - Science. Use these the same as history above.

  • Newbery Medal Book List, Note: I have not read all these books. Please check them out to make sure they will suit your family.

  • Caldecott Medal Book List, Note: I have not read all these books. Please check them out to make sure they will suit your family.

  • Landmark books are excellent reading for grades 4th and up. This series, written in 1950-1970, include stories of famous people and historical events from American and world history. Some have been republished; others you will have to find used.

  • A guide to Landmark books is Karen Thiessen's, World Landmark Books, A Homeschooler's Guide. Read my complete review of this book.

  • Opal Wheeler wrote absolutely delightful biographies of great musicians in the early 1900's. I believe they are just starting to republish them. In the meantime, you can buy them used at Amazon.com.

  • My Favorite Mysteries

  • Use Movies as Literature for grades 7-12.

I didn't create these lists so I can't guarantee that all these books are suitable, but I did want you to have the resources.
