One of my favorite parts of homeschooling my little ones were all the wonderful books we read.

I miss those days of cuddling on the couch and reading lovely books with beautiful pictures in them. I was so excited to find this awesome way to teach expository writing to your older students. Expository writing isn’t that exciting to teach, but it can be when you add in lovely books from childhood!
