Even before becoming a homeschooler I knew the importance of reading aloud. I vividly remember reading books to my ginormous pregnant belly (yes I was that mom).
But it was not until I became a homeschooler and read Jim Trelease’s Read-Aloud Handbook then subsequently stumbled upon the amazing Sarah Mackenzie at Read Aloud Revival that I realized just how important the time spent reading aloud really was.
I was determined then that books would be the staple for everything in our homeschool. We would learn everything we could in all of the subjects with books as our base.
For us picture books are the perfect place to linger. Emily is an auditory learner and I am a visual learner. So we use beautiful picture books to bridge our gap. This way we are both getting what we need and learning together along the way.
This series will feature our favorite picture books broken down into academic subjects so you can learn with books along with us! This post will be all about science picture books.
