Your Favorite Homeschool Book Reviews

We all have favorite home school books. Maybe they are from a long time ago, or just yesterday. They may have made you unable to put them down.

Many of you have read books that you really loved. Here is your chance to tell others just how much, and why, you liked them. They could be anything from mysteries, romance novels, or even magazine articles or textbooks!

Think back to when you were a kid or when your children were little. What books have the worn covers? Or the tattered pages from being used so often? Or that come up in conversation from time to time?

Or perhaps it is the other way around. Maybe you had to read one for school, saw one in the store, or had one recommended to you that wasn't quite what you expected. Perhaps it was so bad that you wouldn't want anyone else to have to suffer through it.

Here is the place to let everyone know. Share your favorite book reviews for kids!
