My family has read and reviewed a number of picture and chapter books this past year. It has been so wonderful getting to know all of the wonderful authors. We have loved all of the books and are eternally grateful when we receive a request for a review and giveaway. With that said, there was some outstanding books and resources which greatly enhanced our homeschool experience/curriculum. These books were not only fun to read, but were educational – and enriched the lives of my children.
All of these books met at least one of the following criteria (many of them meet two or more)…
- Great storytelling with an overall promising message of hope.
- It presented factual information in a fun and unique way.
- Excellent illustrations which engage and promote an interest in reading.
- Provides excellent educational experiences in unique ways.
- The books can be enjoyed again and again.
- Fantastic writing.
- The authors are overwhelming supporters of early childhood literacy.
- Books that will enrich the lives of your children.
- I am able to recommend the book to anyone, and they come back and tell me how much their children loved it.
