I've been using the following series with my own son since the First Grade. By the end of each school year I make sure we have covered everything in the core knowledge books (below) for the grade he is in. I've been very pleased with this choice.

Recommended Homeschool Books:

The greatest "book" I've found so far isn't really a book. It's a Kindle by Amazon. This reading device can be taken with you anywhere and holds about 1500 books - many available as a free download.

I personally think it's the coolest thing since sliced bread. It has so many great features.

It's very light weight and conveniently sized. Its a huge improvement over trying to lug around all the books you need for school. You can use it while waiting for anything from an airplane flight to seeing the doctor. And when you are tired of reading yourself, it will read to you. That is great practice for children learning to read or those wanting to improve their reading skills. You can change the font size for ease of use. You can even download the daily paper and read it on your Kindle.

It's the perfect gift to give a child of any age. And it's perfect for home schooling.



Be sure to visit the Homeschool Resources page for a list of locations that offer free downloadable books online. Most of them can be downloaded to your Kindle or to your computer desktop.
