Where to buy homeschool books

Get a homeschool curriculum at an affordable price

I recently got a call from a friend asking me where one can purchase homeschool books. Those who are just starting out with homeschooling may not know the ins and outs when it comes to curriculum. Fortunately, this is something that you can learn rather quickly.

First, for children in preschool through kindergarten, there is no need to purchase expensive curriculum sets. Staples and even the Dollar Store have workbooks that you can use. These young children are going to learn more from visual demonstrations than from a book. Consider doing as many hands-on activities as you can at this age.

Second, if you happen to be of the Christian faith, use Christian Book Distributors to get your homeschool curriculum. They have an entire section devoted to homeschool books that includes everything you will need all the way through high school. This is where I get a large majority of my books. They are cheaper than on any other website.
Third, talk to other homeschool families and see if they'd be willing to sell you their curriculum when they are finished with it. I found a lady who was willing to sell me her entire history curriculum through 12th grade at an amazing price. Now I don't have to purchase history ever again. We have a family that we give our books to once we're done with them, so it works out perfectly.

Finally, attend a homeschool convention. You'll be able to see the curriculum before purchasing it. You'll also find families who are selling their curriculum at a discount. Feel free to ask the families any questions you have about the curriculum before you buy it so you can be sure it will work well with your child's personality.
