Our Homeschool Week in Books

We love to read! We love reading all kinds of books, including lots of picture books..even though Celeste is eleven and I am forty-three!  I have been sharing our morning books from our homeschool morning routine on instagram (follow me at @lifeonisland.) I really like the idea of documenting our homeschool week in books, like Mary at Not Before 7.

The following books represent what we read in our morning routine, as well as books read for homeschool subjects throughout the day.
