Living Books Resource Lists
I encourage you to choose the very best books for your children — books that draw you in, paint a vivid picture of the history, the story, and/or capture the author’s excitement for the topic he presents. In other words, I recommend choosing living books when possible. They are the 3rd essential tool (narration, notebooking, & living books) in our ProSchooling tool belt.

I was over the moon to find Shelley Sangrey’s “There’s No Place Like Home” YouTube channel. Shelley does an amazing job sharing her family’s experiences with notebooking and everything homeschooling.
