Book picks for homeschool

I have scoured the internet for books to purchase this school year.  I’m a huge lover of books, but not a fan of clutter. I have gone through all the books in my house over the last year, and gotten rid of about 70%.  That being said, I was choosy about what to purchase and what to borrow from our beloved library.

Also, a lover of our amazing local library.

We have finally picked our supplemental books for our 2018-2019 school year.  These books are one I know my kids will read over and over.  Since we are going through lots of American History and Marine Biology there is a theme.  This summer we are gearing up for natures walks/studies as well.

I am stunned by the quality and beauty of these amazing books.

Science: 

This year all kids are learning about Marine Biology from Apologia Science. I decided our water-color time and free art time should be filled with not only some wonderful nature books, but also some sea life inspiration.  Perhaps you didn’t know this about me…I love the ocean.  I also live in Arizona.  Until that ocean front property becomes available here, books get me through my time away from the big blue.

1000 Things Under the Sea

Nature Anatomy

The Curious Nature Guide

Wildflowers of Arizona

History/Geography

This year we are going through the Good and the Beautiful History 1.  There is an emphasis on US History.  These books are wonderful supplement the kids can enjoy anytime.  They love quizzing each other.  I’m a huge fan of placing books in the living room and not saying a word.  They just migrate towards them and learn.  Shhh.  They didn’t know I did that on purpose.

The 50 States

I hope you check out these titles for your kids too.  Supplementing curriculum with rich and beautiful books is one of my favorite purchasing endeavors for homeschool.  What books have you loved in your house lately?  Please suggest some in the comments.
