If I had to pick one thing that I couldn’t live without, it would be books. It runs in my family. One grandmother was a librarian, the other a literature fan. One grandfather was a church scholar, preacher, and history buff, and my dad is a huge science fiction fan. My husband is a voracious reader, and it’s been passed on to our daughter, who reads more than any other kid I know. I love to read and enjoy that when I have the time. I love books of all kinds, but especially non-fiction! Around this house, we love to learn about all kinds of things, so you can find books on just about everything in our family library.
As a homeschooler, we consume books at a near-alarming rate, so I’m always on the lookout for great stuff. I discovered Usborne Books a few years ago at a homeschooler expo, and love them! They have beautiful, durable volumes in addition to some non-book items. The illustrations and photos are vibrant and plentiful, while the content is rich and accurate. Take a look at their books and see what you like! They have internet specials frequently, too, so check back often!
There’s a Mouse in the House is one of our kids’ most beloved books! It has a little mouse that slips through cutout slots in each page, and the kids love it!
