Homeschoolliterature.com was created to highlight fiction books that feature homeschooled characters or home education situations. We understand that homeschoolers don’t always see themselves mirrored in mainstream children’s fiction, so we wanted to create a site that was focused on books homeschoolers could identify with. We have read and reviewed each book personally; it is our intention to introduce these books and authors to readers of all ages. It is our goal to provide an honest, family-friendly online directory where everyone can come read book reviews and comment on them.
With the help of the people at Time4Writing.com (online writing courses) and Time4Learning.com (homeschooling curriculum PreK-8th Grade), the administrators of this site are able to put together two subjects they are both passionate about.: homeschooling and literature.
We hope you like the books and reviews we have put up here for you. It is our hope that this site may also encourage authors and publishers to publish more books about homeschoolers. Please feel free to share your thoughts and suggestions on how we can make HomeschoolLiterature.com even better! We also hope that if you enjoy the site, you will tell your friends, list it as a resource on your blogs and websites, and that you’ll come back and visit often to see what’s new.
Meet Our Site Admins:
Michelle is based in North Carolina and has been a homeschooling mom for over five years. She loves the time she gets to spend with her sons and the experiences they share every day through homeschooling. One of the most important things her family does every day is read for an hour or more. This gives them a chance to learn about all kinds of people, places and situations through the books they read. Michelle believes that a love of reading is essential to the homeschooling life. She has two boys one in 6th grade and one in 11th, both currently using Time4Learning, and other online programs to help give her boys the eclectic style of learning that works best for them.
Michelle is also an admin of SecularHomeschool.com, a website for homeschoolers who aren’t homeschooling for religious reasons. Recently she became an admin at the LetsHomeschoolHighSchool.com, a site that she believes will help anyone who wants to homeschool through high school. And she shares her homeschooling adventures in her blog, Pandahoneybee’s Homeschooling Adventure.
Joy and her family live in the mountains of NC. She is a homeschool mom to a twelve year old girl and a fourteen year old boy who has Prader-Willi Syndrome, autism and ADHD. Originally her son began kindergarten in public school but it quickly became painfully obvious that the typical school environment was not an appropriate fit. A short time later after graduating preschool, her daughter joined the homeschooling team. They have been homeschooling for eight years and cannot imagine doing otherwise. In addition to “school work” the family enjoys hiking, camping, and spending lots of time outdoors. Most days Joy’s daughter can be found reading in a tree.
The journey to parenthood was a long one for the Joy’s family. Before becoming a mom Joy was a preschool teacher and also worked doing behavioral therapy with children with autism. Little did Joy know then but God was preparing her for something much bigger. In Joy’s spare time (haha) she enjoys reading, photography, art, sewing and all things crafty.
