Since we have decided to homeschool our children I wanted to find some books that showed students learning at home that I could read to my children. I discovered that there weren’t many books that fit that bill! I did however, find the one below…This Is My Home, This Is My School by Jonathan Bean is a book that focuses on learning at home. It has simple sentences on each page and shares some tongue and cheek humour like calling Dad the substitute- teacher. The book does a good job of showing how a house can be a home yet a classroom as well. At the back of the book are two pages of real life photos from when the author Jonathan Bean and his siblings were homeschooled growing up which is neat to see. The photos are colourful and fun to see but I did feel like the pages were a bit busy. This book would be best for slightly older children probably around 5 and up.
Do you know of another children’s book that talks about homeschooling?
