Nonfiction Series Worth Owning


πŸ“š Nonfiction Series Worth Owning⁣

*Notes: ⁣
1. I check out dozens of books from the library to use during our homeschool year, but I also believe that books are worth owning and I believe the research that says that owning books impacts literacy; so, when I say “worth owning”, that’s the philosophy it is rooted in. ⁣
2. This will be a post series- many more series in this series to come. 😏 ⁣

πŸ“– DK Help Your Kids With… ⁣

There are many DK series, and I own a ton (more DK to come in future posts) but this is one of my favorites. Perfect references for communal learning! ⁣

πŸ“– Kingfisher Encyclopedias ⁣

When it comes to Encyclopedias, however, I prefer Kingfisher (although I do own several DK too πŸ€ͺ) ⁣

πŸ“– Understanding… ⁣
(Paper Pie/Usborne) ⁣

This series is simply fantastic. I utilize it for as many lessons as I can. ⁣

πŸ“– 100 Things to Know About… ⁣
(Paper Pie/Usborne) ⁣

We use these in our Fun Facts rotation (how we open our homeschool days), but they could have many other uses. They’re brimming with interesting and engaging info. ⁣

πŸ“– Barron’s Painless… ⁣

These are great for simple, yet thorough curriculum for my neurodivergent oldest who likely isn’t going to pursue a STEM career and simply needs a basic foundation (and high school credit). ⁣

I also use some (like American Government) for communal lessons. ⁣

πŸ“– Mini Encyclopedias ⁣
(Miles Kelly Publishing) ⁣

My kids reference these over and over and we pull them into lessons as well. ⁣

πŸ“– Nat Geo Kids Weird But True ⁣

More Nat Geo coming in the series, but we love these. ⁣

The smaller versions are fun for Fun Facts, but the Know-It-All version is great for a variety of lessons. ⁣

πŸ“– Everything You Need to Ace… In One Big Fat Notebook⁣

The best overviews of subjects I’ve seen. LOVE for middle/high school lessons. ⁣

πŸ“– Everything You Need To Know About… Homework⁣
(Scholastic) ⁣

These are simple desk references that I find are perfect for adding into communal lessons to appeal to my youngest. ⁣

πŸ“– Basher Books⁣

All of them. ⁣
Every Basher series. ⁣

Fun, witty, zany, informative, sarcastic. ⁣

We love Basher books so much!
