Excellent Books the Whole Family will Love

Does your family love to read together? Do you have a hard time finding books everything will love? Here is a list of books the whole family will love!

Family Togetherness With Books

Reading books together is one of our favorite ways to spend time together as a family. When you read a book together as a family you are making meaningful and lasting connections.

If you want to learn more about how to best make these connections I reccomend reading The Read Aloud Family by Sarah McKenzie.

Because reading books as a family is a past time we love it is important that we find books we all enjoy. This isn’t alway easy as it needs to be appropiate in content for a child but engaging and complex enough for adults to enjoys it too.

Reading books as a family is one of our favorite ways to spend time together. When we read a book we are making meaningful connections. These books that the whole family will love are perfect for that!

Book Series for the Whole Family

There is just something about a book series that our family loves. Book series give you time to fall in love with the characters and become invested in their journey.

We have read our share of book series over the years but there are some that just stand out. Some that are all around family favorites. We all agree that the books in these series are some the whole family will love!

 Mercy Watson The Princess in Black Zoey and Sassafras Magic Tree House

 Merlin Missions Unicorn Princesses Dragon Masters Bear Grylls

 Percy Jackson The Chronicles of Narnia Mr. Lemoncello’s Library The Penderwicks

 The Sixty-Eight Rooms Tuesdays at the Castle Pages & Co.: The Bookwanderers Harry Potter

 The Green Ember The Land of Stories The Secret Zoo Wild Robot


Authors the Entire Family will Love

Each of these authors are like old friends. We have laughed with them and cried with them. Our family has yet to read any of their books that we did not love. We hope they bring your family as much joy as they have brought ours!

 E. B. White Kate DiCamillo Roald Dahl

Extending the Family Fun

Do you love extending the books you are reading with activities? We do too! I find this to be a great way to get children to do things they may not enjoy like writing just because she have fallen in love with characters in the books.

We love extending books into homeschool lessons so much that many of our products are based on book series. Make sure you check them out by clicking on the images below.

How to Track the Books Your Family Read Alouds

If you are looking for a way to easily keep track of the books you read in your homeschool, I highly suggest the GoodReads app. GoodReads let you have as many “shelves” as you’d like. I have one for every homeschool year so far. You can scan the books and add them to your shelves with ease.

Another option for logging your books is using this free printable book log. It is perfect for tracking the books you’ve read and easy to add into a homeschool portfolio if you have to keep one.

    I just wanted to take the time to tell you how much I enjoy following you on youtube and your blog. This is our second year homeschooling and you are the number one homeschooling mom I always go to for inspiration and ideas. Emily and my son are the same age so your content is very relatable to our family. I love your ideas and how you have made learning so much fun and have been a breath of fresh air to me when I get overwhelmed. Its so funny because even my kids know your channel and ask to watch it if I turn youtube on. We have followed several homeschooling ideas from you and one of my kids favorite things is out gameschool Fridays! I know you probably get tons of emails but I just thought you should get credit for the amazing things you are doing!
