The Reading List

When it comes to homeschooling, no matter what method you use, a reading list is a handy thing to have on hand. For some, the reading list will form the foundation of their studies. For others, it will complement them.

Creating your own reading list from scratch can be a daunting task. Where do you start?

How to Use The Reading List

Our reading list is simply a beginning template for creating one of your own. You’ll want to remove books that don’t fit, add books that you really want to read, and tweak until your reading list fits you, your children, and your family in general.

Many of the books on our reading list will be linked to our Amazon affiliate account. If you choose to click through and purchase, we will receive a small commission that helps keep this site going. Thank you for supporting DIYHomeschooler!

The list that follows is the result of many years’ investment of time in reading, researching, comparing the lists of others, adding, and deleting. Although it began as a project to guide my own personal reading, other people have found it helpful for themselves…. I do not offer it as a definitive statement. In many ways, it is a work in progress and probably, by its very nature, always will be. I see it as a starting point, not as a terminus.
