What books are you in search of to round out your homeschool library?  List them here.


I'm looking for hard cover books in the Dear America and My Name is America series.

I'm looking for Childhood of Famous Americans books

I'm looking for living math books.


How about you?  If you list your specific titles here, I can be on the look out when I'm at yard sales, book stores and thrift shops.
