I haven't written much about homeschooling lately but today I want to share a homeschooling tip with you. Keep great books lying around. Instead of having all our books kept in their shelves, I've decided to put some good books on a small table we have in our living-room so that we can see them. And when we're sitting on our couch, we just pick one, I read aloud to DD, she asks questions, and it's not a formal thing. It works well with my daughter because she doesn't see it as an obligation. She just sees the books, gets curious and opens them.
