    I really like this site. Thanks so much for your hard work on it. We have been highly involved in our children’s education their whole lives. We homeschool. Some of the books you have here are nice and we are familiar with them but some we are not. A person can never have too many websites, books or resources to call upon when teaching your own children to read. Can I save your site for future reference? Will you post additional books and information in the future?

      Hi Bobby, I’m glad you found the site useful.  I love to hear about parents that value reading with their children so thank you for sharing.  I would love for you to check back to this site http://TeachMyChildToReadAtHom… because it will be updated regularly with information on reading at home.  Thanks again, Jodi
