Reading is the most important part of a person’s education, because once they can read, the entire world of knowledge opens before their eyes. Reading aloud to our kids is part of our every day. Our kids also read to us and on their own. Some of our kiddos are voracious and others are reluctant. Some picked it up easily and some struggle with dyslexia. No matter what their situation though, we’ve taught all of our children to read a lot and well, because it’s one of the best gifts we can give them. Here’s to bookworms everywhere.

Book projects are a favorite part of our homeschool. They are basically just book reports minus the boring. We have our kids choose a book and then present it in a fun and creative way. Below you’ll find lots of ideas to get you started.

Tall Tales Book Project – This book project works for any tall tale story – Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, Davy Crockett, Johnny Appleseed, John Henry, or others.
Book discussions are one of our favorite ways to explore a book. Even if you don’t have a formal discussion, hopefully you are talking about what you’re reading all the time.
