I love to put together book lists. I’ve figured out the perfect combination of types of materials to search for at my local library, and in general have amazing success to put together fun book lists. As the years have gone on (because I’ve been blogging for 10 years), I’ve got a lot of book lists for homeschoolers covering a multitude of topics. I thought I’d gather them all together here, and then organize them all together in one place.

As I update more of those ancient blog posts, and realize I have way more posts of book lists for homeschoolers, than I’m sure I’ll add in a whole slew more. Until then, here’s what I’ve found so far. Also, you can find all of these lists and so many more books to read on my Books Worth Reading pinterest board.
Preschool and Kindergarten Book Lists
This set of book lists is all about putting together preschool units for homeschooling preschool. I’m finding more and more of these as I go through all of my old posts, and there are some I really need to go in and add more.
- Farm Preschool Unit
- Rabbit Preschool Unit
- Botany book list
- Apple preschool unit (coming soon)
