I'm needing deals on kids books that deal with introductory to chemistry and books for the middle ages.  I have my spines, but I need books to give them for their reading portions.  Any deals welcomed, please!

Do you have a library nearby? I found with my children the work was more enjoyable and sucessful if we went to the library and each chose a book within the topic.

Say history during the industrial revolution Richard chose a book about Fords assembly line process while Katherine chose something romantic but set in the correct time and covering the lifestyle of the times,  then I chose one for each child that was just a little harder to read than their choice that I would read with them.

This gave them some power over what they read and guaranteed that they would read it and guaranteed they would have some personal mom time each day as we read together. it also gave us time for discussion and I could check comprehension of the history .

the same idea worked very well with science
