The Homeschooler’s Book of Lists, by Sonya Haskins
The first word that comes to mind when trying to describe this book is WOW. Whether you are going to home educate or not, if you have kids this book will be useful.
With over 550 pages of lists, this book has topics of interest for any child. A few examples of topics included are: Independent Agencies of the Federal Government, major inventions (including the who, when, what, and where), major world religions, deadliest animals (including how many deaths worldwide, and how to prevent attacks), and recommended reading for all ages. Though there is a bit more focus on American topics in some chapters, there is plenty of information that covers worldwide topics as well. This is by no means a book geared specifically to Americans.
Of all the books I have, I can easily see this book being pulled off the shelve the most often (besides my Bible, of course.) If you’re homeschooling, this will be a great resource for study topic ideas and research, and if your kids attend school elsewhere, they can find information on pretty much any topic.
This book also includes a CD-Rom so that you can print off any list. Nice!
I received this book free to review from Bethany House publishers, but I was not obligated to write a positive review and my opinions were not influenced by anyone other than myself.
