Adding a little adventure is the key to engaging your child in literature.

My kids hated to read. They complained about their literature assignments and insisted they were just another chore.

But, I knew it didn’t have to be like this. I knew there was a better way.

After trial and error and a few happy accidents, I found a way to bring the joy back to my children’s literature studies.

And, it wasn’t with unit studies and worksheets. It was through fun, engaging activities that inspired them and encouraged a love of reading.

I had tried bribery and prizes, but they didn’t seem to sway my kids’ attitudes toward reading. 

Oh, they would do the reading assignment, but begrudgingly and not with any joy. They had no desire to pick up a book and how could a simple book compete with the barrage of online temptations available?

Then one day everything changed.

Was it a fluke? Or was it something more? 

I honestly wasn’t sure, but one day I accidentally came upon a way to get the kids excited about our family reading. 

It literally changed our homeschool and I was determined to figure out how to keep the excitement going.

Oh, I've Been There...

I tried all the different paths to supposed success with enticing my children to read.

I tried to bribe them with reward points.

And pizza.

And more books (not sure why I thought that would work!).

When bribery didn't work I tried punishment.

“No electronics until you sit down and read this chapter.”

Yeah, that was a huge flop.

According to conventional wisdom, a trip to the ice cream store should inspire your kids to open up a book and read for hours.

Only, it doesn’t. So, how are you supposed to know what to do when everything you’ve been told fails miserably?

Looking back I can see where I went wrong. I can see how I fed into the traditional mindset of education.

Don’t get me wrong. I know that bribery works for some people.

But, I didn’t want my kids to read because of a prize. I wanted them to have an appreciation for literature in all its forms.

I wanted them to experience new worlds, new cultures, and even many old ones. Words should leap off the page and into your imagination. They should shape your mind and your future. 

I wanted my kids to have more and be more.

And, I didn’t want them to go through their childhood believing reading was a chore. 

I wanted them to begin to love great literature now so it could help shape them into the adults they would become. Learning how to be a great thinker comes from critical thinking and analysis. It doesn’t come from watching YouTube videos and reading summaries of the classics.

If they didn’t develop a love for education as children, I feared they would never develop it.

“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don't we consider it his duty to escape?. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we're partisans of liberty, then it's our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!”

- J.R.R. Tolkien -

Your Best Years to Come...​

When you look back at these homeschool years, do you want to see children who had a thirst for knowledge or those who felt frustrated by the experience?

Remember I said that I accidentally came upon a way to get the kids excited about our family reading?

That day I added a little enchantment to our homeschool -- a spark of joy. It came in the form of a cookie. I couldn’t tell you what type of cookie or what the recipe was. I couldn’t tell you the specific day of the week.

What I can tell you is that on that day we stepped into the story. We experienced a part of the book. Sure, it was just a cookie, but it was relatable. It was how we could walk a few steps in the character’s shoes.

It was purely accidental. But, it was magic.

That day I realized what I had known all along.

Education should be a living, breathing, tangible experience.

But, I didn’t stop there. We began adding new experiences. We followed rabbit trails. We created adventures all based on literature.

And, my kids learned to love to read again.

The key to teaching your kids to love literature is pretty simple.

Just add a little magic dust.

Add some snacks, experiences, hands-on projects, and become a part of the book.

Add the joy and excitement that they had when everything was a new adventure and reading was for fun, not for school.

Help them learn to explore new ideas in the book or think critically about the problem the character is struggling to solve.

Give them the opportunity to dig a little deeper and become entrenched in the characters and their stories.

It’s simple really.

Introducing the

Literary Adventures Clubhouse - Premium Membership

With our membership, you can easily add enchantment, inspiration, and adventure to your homeschool. And with over 80 online courses to choose from, your children will be inspired to read from many different genres and levels.

The Magic Reading Loop

The Magic Reading Loop

When you make connections to the literature you're reading, you will remember it for years.

It becomes a part of who you are.

Smell that apple pie? It reminds me of grandma's recipe we baked when we read Charlotte's Web.

The Clubhouse gives your students the tools they need to build those connections, improve reading comprehension, become great readers and writers who are able to express themselves eloquently.

You Have a Choice...

You can read the books with your children and look for ways to expand on the book and add fun details.

Or, you can let me help you.

I have done all the heavy lifting. I’ve created literature courses that guide your children through the book with fun and interesting rabbit trails; hands-on explorations; and a little bit of magic dust.

I give you everything you need to add the joy back to your literature studies. All you need to add are your children and a book.

I love sharing Literary Adventures with fellow homeschoolers. It is such a profoundly wonderful experience to hear stories of how our book clubs have changed the way people homeschool.

You chose this homeschooling path because you wanted something more or different for your kids. But are they getting that? Hating reading books was what happened in their public school classes. You wanted it to be different and that's why you chose to homeschool.

So now it’s up to you.

Do you want to inspire your children to read and give them a new outlook on education?

Or do you want to continue with the traditional way of education?
