My 2009 Fall Into Reading List:
John Adams by David McCullough
When I was in college, I made a list of things I wanted to do before I die. Some of them are completely unrealistic, but one of them was to read a biography of each U.S. President. Problem is, I have only finished George Washington (although I did read two books on him!). So I better get movin' on that goal.
Until We Reach Home by Lynn Austin
I have not read any of Lynn Austin's books, but have heard many good things about several of them. It was hard to decide which one to choose, so if any of you think I should start with another one, let me know.
A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23 by Phillip Keller
I'm having Ryne and Grace memorize Psalm 23 later this year and thought it would be nice if I really dug into it myself. I actually have four of Keller's works in one volume, so perhaps if the painting goes quickly (not likely) I will read the others too.
Creative Homeschooling by Lisa Rivero
This book is written to parents homeschooling gifted children, but it is recommended by the RDI folks as a good general homeschooling resource. Often the methods used to teach gifted children are beneficial for children of all abilities, especially since such strategies often emphasize critical thinking skills.
