This Week's Homeschool Bestsellers at CBD


421128: Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations

Leading the pack is Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations by the Harris brothers. I have been following this family for some time and they are a symbol of the fruits that Christian homeschooling can produce. I was intrigued by their idea that being "bad" as a teen was no longer revolutionary. It made sense to point out to teens who often just want to rebel against something that they might consider rebelling against low expectations that society has for them. I knew from my own experiences working with teens that they often were more conservative than their parents. I also constantly hear from parents that I had better enjoy my kids now because when they are teenagers they will be "a nightmare". I could go on and on but that would be another blog post. This book is great reading for all parents and teens.

146060: Explode the Code, Book 1 Explode the Code, Book 1
I used Explode the Code early on for my son. It was OK but he quickly tired of the simple drawings and some of the exercises involved somewhat obscure answers that were not easy for either of us to guess. I know many parents enjoy using Explode the Code and for the low price, it can not be beat. I do recommend it as a supplement, as does the official website, not as a primary phonics program.

9803X: Webster"s American Dictionary of the English Language, 1828 Edition Webster's American Dictionary of the English Language, 1828 Edition
Okay, I admit it. I am a dictionary junkie. I have loved to read dictionaries since I was a kid. The Webster's 1828 Dictionary is truly a dream come true. The elaborate, traditional definitions give a fascinating view into American History. Buy one if you can- you will keep it forever. You will not find a better price than CBD. (Let me know if you do...). I also use it for my Bible studies.
