A homeschool mom of four, ages six to sixteen, I make weekly trips to our local 100-year-old library. My dream is to someday add my own books to its shelves.

Building a home library full of the tried and true literary gems is no easy task. Characters from stories can leave lasting impressions on young hearts, so we want to choose the ones that will have the most positive impact.

Let us journey forth together, filling our bookcases with stories our children need to grow.
