Exciting Books For Homeschoolers

Here is a list of great books for kids to read from Kindergarten through 12th grade. From fun books to learning books there is something here for every child. A lot of these books I remember reading when I was younger. Some of these books I still enjoy reading to this day. I would love for my children to grow up reading these books too. I hope this list inspires and blesses you and your children.
