If you had only one book to use with your children what would it be?
Please excuse me if this has been done before.
I'm starting "preschool" with my 4 y.o this year. I've done a lot of research on curriculum and ways of homeschooling. Right now I'm happy just doing Seasons of Joy with her. But I have noticed homeschooling can get VERY expensive and am planning for the future.
I personally don't have a lot of money to buy books and we live in the country so library access isn't always feasible. I know the internet is a great resource but let's just pretend that doesn't exist right now.
I'm truly curious what books you use most. If you can't narrow it down then you can list several or maybe one a subject. I'm especially curious about reference books. I figure if I know what is truly useful I can use what little money I do have more effectively.
As always, a big big big THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!
I'm greatly enjoying this!!! Keep the responses coming!!!!
On a side note: I'd love more info on rural homeschooling and we actually do get to the library once every couple of weeks. The kids can check out 25 books but I can only check out one at a time unless I pay extra money. My frustration has been that every book I want they either don't have or is checked out. I'll look into requesting books. That's a great idea.
What are your library's online services like? At my library, I can reserve books, do ILL, and renew books all online. Then I just have to go to the library to pick the books up.
I don't think I could get by on just one book.
I'm pretty new to homeschooling so I'll be keeping an eye on this thread.
