  • Homeschooling On A Budget: Why We Buy Books Used & A Book Haul – “New Children’s Books Are So Expensive! Purchasing children’s books can really break the bank if you are trying to create a large library for your children using only new books. One thing I learned quickly is that children’s books rarely retain their value.”
  • Raising Bookworms: What We Read in March 2019 -“I can’t believe another month has past by us. Every month I feel like I have just written our Raising Bookworms post, when really it was several weeks earlier. This month Zakari and I read 15 chapter books. 4 books ahead of our 11 chapter book a month goal! I was a bit disappointed that we didn’t read as many books as we read in February. I mean March has 3 more days right?”
  • Doman Parent in Hiding – “You might be a Doman parent… Do you ever find yourself hiding what your doing with your child from family or friends? Making sure all the word cards and flashcards of the digestive system are put away before company comes over. The pediatrician laughs at you when you tell him your two year old know his letters and sounds of the letters, and knows how to read hundreds of words.”
  • Raising Bookworms: What We Read in February 2019 – “18 chapter books in 28 days. I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised with how many books Zakari and I devoured this month. Because February is a short month I did not have high expectations. What this month looked like: This month we veered away from many of our go to series and focused on the theme of Valentine’s Day. We tried many new series, and found a few keepers. We also tried a few series that we were not so crazy about. But that is OK! I’d rather try a series and dislike it, then not try and series and miss out on some amazing books. Plus none were that terrible enough for us to stop reading them.”
