By now hundreds of you have downloaded my FREE preorder bonus, Give Your Child the ANCIENT World, and it’s been so special to get your feedback!

Here’s an email I received earlier this week from Bethany Yu:

What a gift! This is awesome. I immediately ordered five of your recommendations from the library.

I KNOW how much time and effort it takes to sort the twaddle from the gems, so I really appreciate you doing the heavy lifting for us…and providing it for free! I simply can’t wait to see what you’ve done in “Give Your Child The World!”

Remember you have until June 6th to preorder Give Your Child the World and get this extra bonus free–find the details right here. I really believe you’ll find both books super-useful and inspiring!

Read your way to a love of math
Written by Jamie Martin of Simple Homeschool

For the past few weeks we’ve explored math study from a different perspective, asking two important questions: Why do we do what we do when it comes to this subject? Are there other valid approaches to consider?

Past posts in this math series:

A different way to look at math

An alternative to workbook pages in the early years is the simple sharing of a book spread open across your lap. It’s one of the easiest ways to create a blossoming love of numbers and patterns in a child’s heart and mind.

I started to put together a massive list of books for you to choose from in today’s post, but then I stopped to consider what I would have found most helpful when I was getting started as a slightly-insecure homeschooling mama.

I realized that I would have loved to have a handful of well-chosen math titles, recommended by a blogger I trusted.

I’ve tried to provide that for you here, highlighting the resources we’ve found most enjoyable in our own family – as well as including a list of other popular books you may want to check out.

Enjoy the journey as you read your way to a love of math!

2 things I think you’ll be excited about

2 things I think you'll be excited about

Note: This sale has ended, but you can still enroll in these courses individually!

You know, they say that outer order contributes to inner calm. If so, then the opposite must be true as well:

Outer chaos can contribute to inner chaos.

Or as a book I know wisely puts it, it’s hard to make a difference when you can’t find your keys.

But there are two things I’m excited about this week that can help with outer order and inner calm–and both are found in this week’s Ultimate Homemaking Bundle.

A few years ago I got my hands on my very first homemaking bundle. I had never heard about anything like it before and I devoured tons of the ebooks and used many of the resources. I learned so much and cashed in those bonuses like a champ!

This year, even though I don’t have as much time to dig into as many of the resources, I’m excited about the fact that two bloggers who I have known and followed for years have their popular e-courses in this year’s bundle!
