2014 Book List

Posted by: 

Getting my kids to read at home can be a bit of a struggle.  But when they find a good book, they get lost in it for hours!

They practically put themselves to bed just to get more reading time!

This year, a few on our must-read list are:

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Vern

Ivanhoe by Walter Scott

Just in Case a series by Matthew Cordell

Hatchet by Gary Paulsen

Far Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George

Isles of the Blue Dolphin by Scott O'Dell

Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story by Ben Carson
