Homeschooling Essentials: A Library Card

5 Days of Homeschooling Essentials

Today is day 4 in the 5 Days of Homeschooling Essentials Blog Hop with The Schoolhouse Review Crew!  Each day 90 bloggers will be writing about what they think are the most important homeschooling essentials.  If you missed them, here are Day 1 , Day 2 and Day 3.

** Oh, and don't forget to enter my UNSTOPPABLE Giveaway!! **

Today I'm going to talk about:

HAVING A LIBRARY CARD

This is a major essential!!  AND IT'S FREE!!

We have been blessed with a wonderful library with a great children's program!  When Funny Bunny was little we practically lived there.  It was really a second home.  We went to all of the programs for her age {starting around 18 months old} and the librarians have literally watched her grow up.  There she is below at around 2 years old.


And of course we always brought back a load of books from our trips. Those were really special times.

Now we go to the library mostly to get books to add to our lesson or to research a certain topic.  It's still fun seeing the librarians...they all love to see Funny Bunny.  {I have always said one day she will volunteer there}

And if your local library is very small, check into buying a library card at a library in another county.  We have a huge library downtown in another county, and many families purchase the card to take advantage of their larger selection and extended check out times.

Come back tomorrow to learn more about our next Homeschooling Essential!

I really liked the movie Fireproof that Kirk Cameron played in. I also heard that in that kissing scene in the movie he refused to kiss anyone but his wife, so they dressed his wife up like the actor and did a silhouette of her.

I love Kirk!!!
