Thanks to Tapestry of Grace, we have added a lot of wonderful living books into our weekly homeschool routine. Specifically, we are reading more living history books. I have been thoroughly enjoying the variety of great literature that we read for TOG Year 1 and look forward to Year 2.
However, I was reminded of several other historical fiction books that we love but are not part of ToG’s reading selections. These books are perfect for reading out loud to grades 2 through 6. And as independent reading for grades 6+. I still read aloud to all of my kids.
Many of these books are made available by Salem Ridge Press. Specifically, Emma Leslie is one of our favorite authors that Salem Ridge Press has edited and republished her books for the Christian audience.

And last, but certainly not least. Our other favorite publisher is YWAM. They have a huge list of biographies and living history books and audio books. We love them!
