I Am Learning All the Time by Rain Perry Fordyce
This is a great book, especially for first time homeschoolers. There are many books about experiences on the first day of school like riding a bus or meeting teachers; however, this book shows specifically what homeschoolers can expect on the first day of school. Fordyce compares some things about going to school and being homeschooled but addresses this comparison with respect for both sides.
Skellig by David Almond
This story follows a young man through an emotionally difficult time that his family must endure. He finds a mysterious winged creature, Skellig, and is able to share the secret of this creature with a homeschooled girl across the street. Better suited for older children, this book includes some supernatural elements that parents should review to decide if it is right for your child.
This Is My Home, This Is My School by Johnathan Bean
Bean takes readers on a journey filled with the gentle rhythms of his own homeschooled upbringing. This story is filled with appreciation for the learning that goes on both inside and outside the character’s home.
