Read Alouds

One of the BEST parts of homeschooling is reading aloud to my kids. We have started a few that we never finished...but we have finished many that we greatly enjoyed.

Here is a list of those books:

The Secret Garden by Francis Hodgson Burnett
A Peep Behind the Scenes by Mrs. O.F. Walton
The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate
Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper
The Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell
The Indian in the Cupboard by Lynn Reid Banks
A Year Down Yonder by Richard Peck
Boy of the Pyramids by Ruth Fosdick Jones
The Seven Wonders of Sassafras Springs by Betty GG. Birney
Caddie Woodlawn by Carol Ryrie Brink
Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine

Currently we are reading:
The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson

[For those of you who are super curious, here are the books that we started and couldn't manage to finish: Pollyanna, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, The Wind in the Willows, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, The Once and Future King)
