First, thank you to all of you that shared with me regarding our homeschooling and living books. I appreciate it SOO much!
I think I have finally found what we are going with for school next year, Truthquest History. I have been looking into several things and this really looks like it is just what I am looking for. I found one of the guides on a used curriculum site for $10 today, so I went ahead and ordered it. I can't wait to get it and actually get to see if it really is what I am looking for. If you want more information about Truthquest, go here.
Now, for anyone that is familiar with it, I do have a question. Is there a list of what books are recommended for each guide? I would like to go ahead and be looking for some of the books. I have looked at the sample pages on the website and have seen some of the recommended readings to choose from, but I wasn't sure if that was the complete list or just for that section. I know that I don't have to follow any certain book (which I absolutely love), but I know that the ones recommended would be excellent choices. I thought if I had a list ahead of time, I could be looking at the library, used book places and on paperbackswap.
Thank you again for all of your comments and help. I am still looking into science and have been looking at the ones suggested!
