Who Should We Then Read?

The Ultimate Homeschool Library Building Reference!


In June 2005, while exhibiting at my first homeschool convention, I had the opportunity to meet a fellow exhibitor, Jan Bloom, of Booksbloom in Rolla, Missouri.  Jan travels the country exhibiting her mobile bookstore at conventions from coast to coast helping homeschool families to build their libraries. Out of this experience, she authored this book, which is one of the greatest homeschooling (and general children's book) Bibliographies I've encountered.

In an attempt to make finding these books easier, I've provided inventory links below, keyed to the pages of the Revised and Expanded Version of her book.
