Conclusion: Homeschool Preschool Books

My kids love listening to homeschool preschool books as audiobooks. Audiobooks open up a world of adventure to younger children. Listening to audiobooks on Youtube also means you can listen to many audiobooks for free! I would try to find a book title you like and type in the name followed by ‘audiobook’. For example, ‘Little Pilgrims Progress audiobook’. Alternatively, you can listen on Audible which has a better range and better readers. Don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel called ‘How to Homeschool’ here.

Rebecca Devitt

Most adults don't particularly want to relive their schooling experience on a daily basis. They would gladly move on to a new life devoid of homework and teachers. Very, very few adults will passionately blog about their schooling some 15 years after graduating. This makes Rebecca Devitt somewhat unique. As it happens, she was homeschooled. And she loved it. Still does. And she wishes every kid could get a taste of homeschooling at its very best. Her website How Do I Homeschool, is a springboard for parents to see what a life of homeschooling could be for both them & their children. When she's not blogging Rebecca is still homeschooling her-adult-self by learning Latin, growing weird vegetables and most importantly looking after her two children Luke & Penny. She has a husband Tristan and is a participant at Wollongong Baptist Church. She's also written a book about why parents should homeschool called 'Why on Earth Homeschool'.
