If you had to pick JUST 3 books (literature) a year to purchase and read with a child, and that is IT, other than the Bible, what 3 books would you pick, for each grade Preschool through grade 8? Links to particular editions would be helpful, if you have favorites? You could look at this as a family stranded on an island with NO outside resources. Or you could look at this as what mom TAUGHT and the children can then read widely on their own. Or any other scenario you choose. But I'd like to see people's lists of just 3 pieces of quality literature per year. non multa, sed multum Plinius Not many, but much. (Meaning, not quantity but quality.)
I have been listening to Andrew Kern of Circe Institute speak at our homeschool conference for several years, and it is beginning to sink in. I am reconsidering everything I know about educating my children. I truly am at a loss. I have no idea where to begin, as far as curriculum is concerned. I beg of you, throw me a bone...where do I begin? If I want my children to love learning, become human, and above all other things, love the Lord, what in the world am I supposed to be teaching and how?
