    We’ll be starting a state study on Kentucky next month and was wondering if anyone had suggestions for living books that focused on the natural elements of Kentucky. I have Daniel Boone, Abe Lincoln, and the Derby, but my middle DD likes to focus on the habitat and the living creatures. Along the vein of “A Girl of the Limberlost”. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I did check the bookfinder, but didn’t find what I was looking for…

    Thanks so much, Tonni

    I don’t have any book suggestions for you but have you looked for books at your local library? Libraries are usually a good place to look for books that are more regional. Also, try the Kentucky DNR or a nature center. They may have book suggestions that are what you are looking for.


    The closest “real” library is a good distance away. I live in rural America and although we have a “library” of sorts, there’s not much of a selection. They will do inter-library loan some times, but it could take weeks to get it in. Last time, they charged me for the service and I could keep the book only 10 days.

    Just hoping someone had something they knew about already. We’ll use our field guides and contact the DNR…thanks!


    Hi. I live close to KY and did some research for you. I came across a list of books at this website…

    We are just starting to homeschool, and I like what I’ve seen of the CM approach. I am still grasping the concept of “living books” so please forgive me if this is not what you are looking for. I hope this helps you!


    Hey…how cool! Thank you SO MUCH! Yes, there are a couple on there I believe would be helpful. I snagged one on Paperback Swap already. How very kind of you!

    Happy New Year!
