Our Weekly Book Basket

by Katie on September 18, 2014

One of our favorite times throughout the school day is our daily reading time.  Whether we’re all reading together from a book, or everyone is curled up in a bean bag with a book of their choice, it has become a time that we’ve all grown to love throughout the years.

We alternate between books that we have here at home (we’ve accumulated quite a few over the years) and books that we borrow from our frequent trips to the local library.  Since we love finding new favorites, I thought I’d share our weekly “Book Basket” each week.

I’ll highlight the books we’ve read during our weekly story time, and summarize our thoughts.  In turn, if your family has a favorite story, I’d love it if you’d share the title and author in the comments below.  We always love a great book recommendation!

Masters of Music: The Life & Times of Franz Peter Schubert – This book provided a nice summary of Schubert’s life and career.  It went into more detail than we needed for our purposes, so we skimmed through the book, focusing on the main points of his life as well as the illustrations.

Time Readers for Kids: Historic St. Augustine – These Time Readers are excellent first history readers for very young children.  Since we had just finished learning about St. Augustine, the full-color pictures in the book were an ideal supplement to our lesson.

Around the World in a Hundred Years by Jean Fritz – Let me just start by saying that I love Jean Fritz books.  She has a wonderful way of explaining history so it’s not only understandable for children, but fun as well.  While we didn’t read this whole book, my youngest son enjoyed reading a few of the stories out of it about the early explorers.

I, Columbus by Peter Roop – This book included a variety of passages that have been translated from Christopher Columbus’ journal that he kept during his travels.  It was interesting for the kids to see what concerns and worries Columbus had as he was sailing through uncharted territory.

Land Ho! Fifty Glorious Years in the Age of Exploration by Nancy Winslow Parker – This book was a fun compilation of short stories about the early explorers.  The pages provided fun illustrations, diagrams, and maps to correspond with the various stories.

A Picture Book of Christopher Columbus by David Adler – This book includes nice illustrations and a basic story line to explain the life and travels of Columbus.  While it might be too simplistic for older children, it’s a nice book for kids in younger grades.

I Pledge Allegiance by Bill Martin Jr. - This playfully illustrated book goes through the Pledge of Allegiance line by line, explaining what each word of this masterpiece means.  It puts the Pledge of Allegiance into simple, easy to break down terms, that makes it understandable even for younger children.  Plus, the illustrations are vibrant and engaging for little readers as well.

The Voyage of Christopher Columbus in His Own Words – This interactive book includes a fold-out map, pop-ups of Columbus’ ships, and illustrations of what life was like for an early adventurer aboard a ship.  While simplistic in nature, the kids really enjoyed looking through this book.

Who Were the Vikings by Usborne Books – Usborne Books have been such an awesome resource for our family throughout our homeschooling years.  The illustrations are fun and very detailed in nature, and there is a wealth of information included in the books without being boring.  The Vikings book was no exception.  It gave a nice overview of the Viking way of life and was a great supplement to our coursework.

Beorn the Proud by Madeleine Polland – Although we read this book last year, it was a wonderful fictional piece about Viking times.  The book illustrates the struggles between two cultures and two faiths in the interactions of a Viking boy and his young Irish captive.  It was arguably one of the best fictional pieces we’ve ever read throughout our homeschooling years.
