Homeschool Helps & A Favorite

The Happy Housewife has this great idea to post about the books that we are reading, books the kids are reading, and books we use in our homeschool day. So for our 3rd week of the book basket I thought I would tell you about some of the books that I have read in my homeschool journey.

One of our all time favorite books is:

The Way I Feel by Janan Cain

What a treasure trove it has been for us. The kids have been on emotional rollercoasters for the last couple of years. There was moving, then deployment, and then moving again. Some days they do not know whether they are coming or going. We read the book and I let them talk if they want. I don't push or ask a lot of questions, I don't want to pull an emotion out of them that they are not experiencing. Usually I will hear something that is on their mind though.

Have a great day and visit The Happy Housewife to see what other books are made the lists.

Great list of homeschooling books. Some of them I hadn't heard of before.

I appreciated your comments on Christine Field's book. I have read her Life Skills book and really enjoyed much of it, probably those few chapters you enjoyed were a summary of her other book. :-)

Thanks for sharing!

Hey, I just clicked over from The Happy Housewife. I've been thinking a little bit about homeschooling, and these look like some good resources.
