I’m a huge proponent in literacy with people in general. Even more so when it comes to children. These days there are so many types of technological distractions. Children are into YouTube, streaming services, video games, and more. It’s all around us and I can’t blame our children for wanting to entertain themselves. We do the same and it’s preposterous to think they won’t follow suit.
However, I didn’t grow up like that and I’ll be damned if my kids get lost in the shuffle. I am a homeschool mom and we do a number of assignments that go with books. I’ve decided to create a reading list for my children and we’ve gone through so many.
Here is our 2020 list for the children. There will be more and they will change as the year progresses. We’ll post progress, the kids reactions, and the favorites they choose. I want to teach them how to review a book. It’ll be fun.
