Sometimes it seems impossible to achieve all the many things we want to accomplish in our children’s educations. It’s a daunting process–ensuring you are teaching them the best way, the best topics, the best preparation for the real world.
You know me. I totally believe you can’t go wrong by making literature an important part of your homeschool.
James Brewster is at it again. Maybe I should say Uncle Rocky and his brave nephews are saving the day again. Picnic from the Glad to Do It! series is another winner that will have your kids celebrating everyday heroes even more than usual.
Because every little boy wants to be a firefighter. And Mr. Brewster knows how to make it exciting.
My boys love this film about a pair of siblings in foster care who keep stray dogs in an abandoned hotel.
Because what kid doesn’t love dogs? Well, I mean, I do know one kid that doesn’t, but she still enjoys dog movies.
If you’re looking for a family fun night with plenty of laughs and a book tie-in, Hotel for Dogs is the perfect answer. And read the book, too, because it’s written by Lois Duncan, so you know it’s good.
Just maybe don’t try to read it all in one night.
Books. They hold a special place in our hearts. As young children, we discover the world between their pages–animals we have never seen in real life, other kids and families that we haven’t experienced, and possibilities like school, parties, and holiday celebrations.
As we grow, books take on new meaning. Characters we can relate to, places we’ve never been, experiences we might never have.
Books inspire us and make us think, they help us escape and remind us of home.
Reading for pleasure does all of those things. It can be easy to forget that reading also has a place in education, but I can’t stress the importance of literature in your homeschool enough.
