Homeschooling Book Lists

Books, books, books! I couldn't do without them in my homeschool. However finding good books is what often takes time and research. Here is a collection of book lists to hopefully direct you to finding books on topics that you want to cover in your homeschool.

Many of these booklists were put together by Mary Collis from A Living Education Magazine. You will not find every book that was printed on a topic here but rather a selection of living books that come recommended.

When possible I've linked the books to an online bookseller. I do earn a small comission from these sales but they are there for your convenience.
