So many books, so little time…

We are a family of bookworms! This is Gabe’s senior year, and kind of our ‘last chance’ to get in the lit. that I think is important before he graduates (not that he won’t read after he graduates, but he won’t have to read what I tell him to anymore!). I’ve been scouring high school and college book lists, checking with him on what’s been read/not read, and he’s got quite a little pile to work on.

My younger two and I still read aloud together nearly every day, and it’s actually still my favorite part of the homeschooling day.  Some of the best books we’ve read together this year have been:

Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred Taylor (to my mind, needs no explanation…one of my all-time favorites!)

A Long Way From Chicago by Richard Peck (new to us–humorous, and ended up being another favorite)

Homesick–My Own Story by Jean Fritz (funny too, though there was one sad section where I broke into the ‘crying voice’. I can’t help it. I’m a big softie)

The Breadwinner by Deborah Ellis (magnificent perspective on a child growing up in Afghanistan…every American child should read this at some point)

I could go on and on..but tell me some of YOUR favorite books for middle schoolers and young adults!

Blessings,
