    this booklist is great . is it possible to add the books to the nature study pdf we receive for every live lesson ?
    with the time difference between you and where we live we keep missing the live lessons but grateful that we can watch the recording .

  2. Viviane, I’m so glad you are able to enjoy the lessons even though you can’t make it live. Yay for internet technologies! I typically write the supplementary packets pretty far in advance and do my book recommendation research closer to the class date. If I can find a way to easily switch up my work flow, I’ll do it, but I’m in a pretty hard-to-break habit at this point. LOL

  3. Great read!!! Thanks for sharing such a great blog, blog like these will surely help each and every homeschoolers in homeschooling their children in best way.
