So ladies, if your kids are at the middle school level, or past it already, what is your favorite book you used for thise level in school?
What makes it your favorite?
Are there resources to go with it?
Are there other books like it?
As I was doing the high school post it finally clicked which one I enjoyed best for Middle School. It was Milton Hershey: More Than Chocolate by Janet and Geoff Benge.
I originally picked this book because DS LOVES candy and chocolate and I thought that it would be more appealing to him because of that. Overall it was a really interesting book, with a lot of possibilities for activities you can do along with it.
I believe it IS a Christian book but I don't remember (not 100% sure though) it being overly "preachy" or anything like that if you're not a Christian. It's actually a pretty easy read (so you could pre-read it fairly quickly if you're worried about it) but I felt it was worth it for DS to read.
This books also comes from a series of similar books for other people as well. I've used different ones here and there.
I have two in middle school, but they are not homeschooled (only my youngest). But they are voracious readers...and not only did they love the Origami Yoda series but they got me to love it too. I like the story, I like the message of it, the humor is actually funny (even if you're not in middle school)...all that.
