Exploration & Early American History Term 1 Book List...


We've just begun the last term of our 2013-2014 school year and I've been looking back, reflecting on the good, bad, and ugly, as I look ahead to next school year.  We all love great living books and history is our favorite subject here so I will continue as usual with what we've been using.   You can read more about that here.  For now, I thought I'd share our entire Term 1 book list with you.  I read these books to our 3rd and 4th grader.  The books with asterisks (**) indicate books we did not read fully, rather we referenced or read sections from them.
