I appreciate viewing suggestions on lovely, wholesome books for children, that others have actually read. So here are a few we've been reading over the last few weeks. All our copies are second hand, usually from op-shops or thrift shops, car boot sales or market stalls and from Aussie Homeschool Classifieds. If you are not a member of Aussiehomeschool consider joining, there is much information or direction, support and discounts. Susan who leads Aussiehomeschool, tirelessly supports the Australian homeschooling community and is very gracious.
Below are some links for you to make them easy to find.
Lassie Come Home by Eric Knight
Heidi by Johanna Spyri
The Wind In The Willows by Kenneth Grahame
Snowflake by Paul Gallico
Roald Dahl. Gumnut has read these collection of books several times
Shorter picture books are still a favourite and we haven't given those up just because he is older and can read chapter books now.Who doesn't love beautiful children's picture books? Picture books are my favourite.
The Raft by Jim Le Marche
Albert by Donna Jo Napoli
Enchantment In The Garden by Shirley Hughes
The Complete Adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie + Little Ragged Blossom and Little Obelia by May Gibbs. A favourite since Gumnut was 7 and also a favourite of Blossom 5.
