Reading Lists

Awesome book lists, organized by ages

When it comes to books and choosing which ones to put on your very own unique ‘list,’ many parents get a little overwhelmed.

Reading lists for all ages

How do you choose from all the books out there? One way is to look at recommended reading lists that have already many compile. There are reading lists for virtually every category you’re looking for and gleaning from the experience of others can surely enhance your own student’s educational experience. First-time homeschoolers sometimes just want a list of those ‘must read’ children’s books; others want accurate lists based on the ‘reading the classics;’ still, others want a list of books that will be most helpful to the student that is college bound.

It is helpful to have recommended reading lists from a variety of sources that address a variety of categories: non-fiction, fiction, historical fiction, bestsellers, etc.

Homeschool Base curates and maintains a number of reading lists. These lists are thorough, carefully selected, and designed to be the only lists you’ll ever need to use.
