Wholesome Books to Use in Your Homeschool

I have often been disappointed to find out that a book I selected for reading to my children, or for their own quiet time reading, was not appropriate, or proper in it's time of use based on their age.


Because of this, I have developed this page to begin a growing list, of wholesome books that I would be happy to have in my home, and those that I feel comfortable using for my children. I have read or used them myself and would recommend them to other moms.


I have also added a list of my guidelines for choosing wholesome books. I hope this will be a blessing to you. This list will continue to grow, and I hope you will enjoy the choices.
