How to Use This Course

Adventures with Books includes suggested reading lists based on a theme and related activities you can do with your family to bring the stories to life. Activities and books for various ages are included, and themes include holidays, authors, and much more.

Course Introduction

Hello, and welcome to Adventures with Books! I’m so glad you decided to join me on this journey. How does it work? First, I will post new units each month based on a range of themes including holidays, authors, and many other topics. These units will include book titles and suggested activities. Then, you will read the books you choose and complete the activities that work for your child. (I suggest that you pre-read the stories and have an introductory discussion with your child prior to starting each book.) Some activities will be more advanced, while others will be simpler, so there is something here for a range of ages. You pick and choose what works best for your family. Have fun!
