I’ve been stocking up on some new books and games for the new school year and I’m so excited about some of the new resources we have. I love it when my kids are learning but they don’t even realize they are learning because they think they are just having fun.

    Homeschool Library Haul: a peek inside some great fiction and non-fiction books, plus graphic novels Private

    Today I thought I would show you a little library haul! Since our library has a limit of 100 books per card we make good use of our library.

There really is no theme to the books I’m sharing, it’s just some we’ve been enjoying, there are some graphic novels, non-fiction, STEM books, poetry and more!       BOOKS MENTIONED   Mighty Jack Jack might be the only kid in the world who’s dreading summer.
