A good Wall Street Journal article on books popular with homeschoolers.
I don't understand the author's comment that some Christians may see Laura Ingalls Wilder as "insufficiently pious" (because she was restless on Sunday as a small child?!) but otherwise the article is worth reading.
We use the K12 curriculum, which utilizes titles by both Wilder and Lewis. Being homeschoolers, we have plenty of time for going beyond the books used in the curriculum and reading the rest of the books in each series, which, as the article points out, is one of the pleasures of homeschooling!
