A Hodgepodge of Favorite Books and Resources

The children should have the joy of living in far lands, in other persons, in other times – a delightful double existence; and this joy they will find, for the most part, in their story books. ~ Charlotte Mason

Favorite books are hard to narrow down to a list of ten! So, today I’m sharing a hodgepodge of favorites – lists and more! ~this post contains affiliate links that help support Hodgepodge. Please see our disclosure policy.

Hodgepodge of Favorite Books Grace for the Moment Devotional for Kids – this year’s all-time favorite. A devotional purchased for Littlest Girl and one now beloved by the entire family. We like to keep it within reach in our Bible Basket.

Nostalgic Read Alouds 10 Nostalgic Read Alouds – “Winkin, Blinkin and Nod sailed off in a wooden shoe” Mother Goose, Book House books, Dick and Jane and more.

A Girl After God's Own Heart Favorite Devotionals and Other Resources – “This list of devotionals would be great to start with this new year or any time of year. Here’s our virtual stack.”

P2P005228 10 Christian Resources for Adolescence – “When the children turn twelve the much-anticipated trip with dad becomes a reality.”

IMG_5830-580x386 Our favorite bird field guides – “look up your favorite bird and listen to its call.*favorite! favorite!”

Audubon First Field Guides Audubon First Field Guides – (real life photo of the piles by the backdoor. Have to have them handy for nature study). Eldest Boy learned to read with these. Nana read them and recorded her voice on cassette tape. He listened over and over. Auditory learner!

Goodnight Moon x 2 Goodnight Moon “in the great green room…” So much of a favorite that we have two copies.

Answers in Genesis Guides Answers in Genesis Guides – we love all of the Answers in Genesis resources. I couldn’t find the very favorite Aquarium guide at the time of this photo. (Littlest Girl got the mini Aquarium Guide for her birthday last year). It may have been in off in a bedroom somewhere. The children even pull our God’s Design for Science curriculum off the shelves for browsing.

365 Days of Celebration and Praise 365 Days of Celebration and Praise – (my full review) a well-worn reference we pull out often for every day celebrating and learning. “Julie Lavender has done all the work. Pull out her 365 Days of Celebration and Praise to start the day. It’s appropriate for all ages. A full year of family devotionals.”

IMG_7101 Tapestry of Grace books – it’s always a fun time when the big stack of Tapestry books come from the library! Weaving all sorts of wonderful learning through all the ages in our homeschool.

About Hodgepodgemom

Tricia faces a daily dose of chaos homeschooling five children. The biggest lesson she’s learned? At the end of the day – when the dishes are put away and the children are tucked in bed – truly what matters is each child’s relationship with the Lord. Raising children is a God-given privilege and, folks, the time is short.

  1. I love it that your board book copy of Goodnight Moon is so worn. It looks like ours.

    I’m such a mush ball …. I’ve started getting teary eyed with Goodnight Moon, because I’ve read it for so many years!
