Question:
Do you use living books in your Homeschool?? And what books are on your TO READ list this year?? ---------------
Answer:
I LOVE living books as Charlotte Mason calls them!!! My kids have learned to really love literature by teaching them with stories instead of text books. We're reading The Little House series this year and a few select novels from Jean Craighead George as well!!! For my littles I have a whole list of living books! See the link in my bio if you'd like a copy of the book list ❤️
