books and Resources

I thought I should write a post about some of the books and resources we have used in teaching our children, and also those that we have used to educate ourselves as parents. There are so many good and useful sources of information, and I thought to just share what we have come across in our years of homeschooling. Feel free to comment and add your recommendations to what’s mentioned here, for I am sure this is by no means an exhaustive list!
