    Martin's book list

    When I talked to Martin Cothran at our homeschool conference last summer, he said they do a few lit guides per grade as they want the kids to really spend time in those books... But also that they spend time reading a lot of other books too. It's just that they don't expect them to go that into every book they read. He recommended to contact MP and ask for "Martin's book list". Can you load the list here so that we can all benefit from his recommendations? If the file is too large, can you please email it to me?

    Thank you.

    Me too!

    I would love to see his reading list. I read on a forum post somewhere that you could call MP and get it, but didn't want to bother anyone.
    If you email it out, I am at [email protected]
    Blessings,

          That is just fantastic! Are many of these the same as the ones on the HLS website under summer reading?
          The Older Boys:
          J- 6/96: (CAPD/mild ASD) working/living on his own
          S- 11/98: Jan. 2022- BYU-I accounting major

          The Middle Boys:
          G- 4/04 (mild ASD/mild intellectual delay)
          D- 5/05 (mild processing issues)

          The Princess:
          F- 7/08

          The Youngest Boy:
          M- 9/16:
          2021: MP JrK and some other stuff
          2022: MP K and BJU Math K

            I just saw this mentioned on an older thread on the WTM forums. How nice to come here and see it uploaded! Thanks!

              Both lists include many of the same books, but Martin's has many more than HLS's summer reading. I would dare to say as well that HLS's list has some books that Martin's doesn't have.

                Paul,

                I'm listening to Martin's talk from GHC Cincy (and putting it over the bluetooth speaker for Brett to hear, too), and going over his list again. Is there a rough layout of grade level? I've got twin boys (7) who LOVE read-a-louds, and I'd love to pick some specifically for them, instead of always following the list of read alouds for their older sister.

                Looking forward to your input.

                  Dianna,

                  If you look at the PDF, Column D is the minimum read aloud age and Column E is the maximum read aloud age suggested. The PDF I posted in 2012 was organized by the minimum age that the student should be able to read the books alone. I am reattaching it here organized by minimum age you can read aloud to them.

                  Does this help?

                        Oh, my word.

                        It's obvious I need more coffee.

                        I swear, I read those columns as 'Minutes to read aloud'. I was scratching my head as to how in the world anyone could read that fast.

                        THANK you for explaining things to me.

                          This is how I read the columns too! Clearly it's too late for my brain to be making any sense.

                            I have to share a moment from my early morning today. I was looking over Martin's list when my 4th grade daughter wandered into the family room this morning. She plops herself down next to me and asks what I am doing. I said I was looking at a book list. Here is our basic conversation, "A booklist? What's that." "Well, it's a list of really good books that someone at MP has compiled for us to use as a guide for choosing books for you to read or to be read to you." Daughter then says, "You mean that ALL of those books are good for me to read. I could read them any time I wanted." I say, "Yes, that's right." Daughter, "If I want these books you could check them out at the library." I respond, "Yes." Daughter then says, "WHOA!!! Can I have a copy of that list?"

                            I printed her the middle six pages (she was no longer interested in Goodnight Moon). She took the list to her room. It is displayed on her cork board with a highlighter all ready to mark them off as she reads them. She has requested her first book, "Heroes of Greece and Troy."Why didn't I think to give my kids these book lists? I am always the keeper of the list. You can rest assured that my second grader will get his list before the day is over. (He might not be as excited as his bookworm sister, but I can hope.)

                            Thank you, Martin!!!
