Books That Feature Homeschool Children

Many children love to read, but it can be difficult to find books featuring homeschooled children. I decided to find some books featuring homeschoolers for my homeschooled children, so I thought I’d share them with you! Even though homeschooling is growing, there isn’t yet an abundance of books featuring homeschoolers, but I’m listing here the ones I was able to find. If you have suggestions to add, please leave them in the comments!

Please keep in mind that I have not read all of these books. You will need to decide which books are right for your children. Also, I’ve included the suggested age/grade levels when available. Reading abilities vary greatly from one child to another, so these levels are included only as a guide.
