Spread the love

Ah, books. We love the way they smell, the way they feel, the way they extravagantly fill our bookshelves. For the individual book lover or the reading family, the only thing we love as much as a good book is a good book about books!

And a book filled with lists of other books? *swoon*

Why reinvent the wheel? Here are a few trusted book list resources to get your library card whirring.

But before the book lists, a caveat

You know there is no perfect book list, right? Every family is unique. Each child has their own strengths and weaknesses. Some book lists will include books we may choose not to include in our family’s reading plan. Those same lists and others may omit (or even caution against) books that we believe are worth including in our book stack.

The answer to the imperfect book list conundrum is not to abandon book lists. The answer is more book lists.

Each book list has its own blind spots as well as its own strengths. By reading widely and variedly, we and our children will gain a fuller picture of the world and the way others think about it.

Amy Sloan and her husband, John, are second-generation homeschoolers by grace alone to 5 children ages 4, 7, 8, 11, and 13. Their educational philosophy is one of humility and doxology, and follows primarily a classical approach. Amy loves coffee, perseveres through half-marathons and weight-training, and starts getting nervous if the stack of to-be-read library books beside her bed is less than 2 feet tall. Get her started on Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Homer, or Hamilton the Musical and it might be hard to get her to stop. Mostly, though, she gets really excited about the Gospel. The Sloan family adventures in North Carolina.
