This month for the Poppins Book Nook, the theme was school. There are so many fun books about kids going to school, but there don’t seem to be quite as many about kids who are homeschooled. So, I decided to put together a list of books that I have found about kids who were homeschooled or unschooled (kids who have learned on their own or through living in nature). There are more than I thought! I have read some, but not all of these & look forward to reading more of them with my kids.
