I remember a while back , someone mentioning a list of living books on many different subjects that a woman had put together to purchase. I think the cost was around $20. I thought I bookmarked it, but I can’t seem to find it…can’t find it in a search either. I thought something like that might come in handy so I can find some good books at the library when we need to supplement here and there.
Does anyone know what I’m talking about?
I am not sure this is the one but maybe you are thinking of All Through The Ages by Christine Miller? It has lists of books in chronological order and then divided by age.
Or possibly Jan Bloom’s What Shall We Then Read? books? There are two now.missceegeeParticipant
I don’t know if this will help, but I compiled this list of Ambleside Online, Honey for a Child’s Heart and Higher Up & Further In selections by category and age/grade level. It may not be what you’re searching for, but it is quite a big list to choose from, and hey, it’s FREE!
Hope it helps,
PS – I just updated the link, the previous one was broken. Sorry.MeganParticipant
Thank you all! I think it may have been All through the Ages that I was thinking of. I really like the “Who shall we then read?” as well…what does it consist of? Is it a list of books on lots of subjects, or just history?
Christie, thank you so much for sharing that! Amazing! I will definitely use your list in our little school…what a valuable resource…btw, I am hooked on the Outdoor Hour Challenge blog you told me about along with Anna Comstock’s book. I’d love to use the blog and book (and maybe some other living books) as our science curriculum this year for our kids (age 5 and 7 – mostly for the 7). Thanks again!
Jan Bloom’s books are organized by author. She gives information on good living-book authors, describes the books they write, and gives lists of books they’ve written. I often take her books to used sales, because I know then that I’m getting a gem if I find one of her authors.
She’s also very, very nice. 🙂
