Books Make Great Gifts!

Guest Author - Alissa Moy

There are some great book choices for your homeschoolers this holiday season, from mysteries to adventure series. Popular series, such as Harry Potter are always engaging choices for young adult readers. Classic books, such as Gulliver's Travels and Tom Sawyer are also great for children in their tween years. Younger children still relish picture books, like Curious George and Winnie the Pooh. Here are some ideas for your favorite homeschooler this holiday season.

Preschool students develop their love for reading during these formative years. Dr. Seuss books are wonderful for teaching children not only reading skills, but also rhyming. Books like "Hop on Pop" and "Cat in the Hat" come in fantastic beginner book sets as well. Younger elementary children love a variety of books, ranging from Winnie the Pooh to Junie B. Jones. Marc Brown, creator of the Arthur character, has written many fabulous books based on this kind hearted aardvark and his family. Books like "Arthur's Mystery Babysitter" and "D.W.'s Perfect Present" are not only funny, but they are also wholesome reading for the younger crew. Another humorous classic is the Curious George series. The mischievous behavior of this cute monkey takes the readers on a wild adventure!


Older elementary and middle school homeschoolers will enjoy an exciting and interesting book during their winter break. An alternative to the latest vampire craze is a wonderful series by John Flanagan. "The Ranger's Apprentice" follows the adventures of a boy named Will, who must use stealth and courage to protect his kingdom. Harry Potter books are another favorite for both boys and girls in their tween/teen years. Young ladies will enjoy the American Girls series of stories. "Kirsten" and "Samantha" are wonderful young women to read about, and their stories come in nifty book sets. The Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan is an exciting book series for Mythology lovers. Anne of Green Gables is a kindhearted series of books that are must reads for any teen girl. "Anne" is a character made to stand the test of time!
Lastly, the classic books by Judy Blume, like Superfudge and Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great are funny and enjoyable for older elementary children who enjoy a humorous tale.
