• And much more!
With more than 250 lists about great people, important dates, mathematical formulas, word origins, and more--plus special checklists and ideas to aid lesson planning--The Homeschooler's Book of Lists is an invaluable tool for home educators and classroom teachers alike.

Top Customer Reviews
The first word that comes to mind when trying to describe this book is WOW. Whether you are going to home educate or not, if you have kids this book will be useful.
With over 550 pages of lists, this book has topics of interest for any child. A few examples of topics included are: Independent Agencies of the Federal Government, major inventions (including the who, when, what, and where), major world religions, deadliest animals (including how many deaths worldwide, and how to prevent attacks), and recommended reading for all ages. Though there is a bit more focus on American topics in some chapters, there is plenty of information that covers worldwide topics as well. This is by no means a book geared specifically to Americans.
Of all the books I have, I can easily see this book being pulled off the shelve the most often (besides my Bible, of course.) If you're homeschooling, this will be a great resource for study topic ideas and research, and if your kids attend school elsewhere, they can find information on pretty much any topic.
This book also includes a CD-Rom so that you can print off any list. Nice!
"Rather than do that, the publisher opted to include a CD that can print out each and every list from the book and here's the great part, you can search even by a single word or phrase to find what you're looking for anywhere in the book! It was a terrific alternative and I think it ended up working better than any index could have. For example, when I want to find out if any of the lists contain information with "German" in them, I would just type in "German" in the "Find" box and it would pull up every single instance that this word is used in the book."
I will now definitely buy this book / CD combo!
My 11 year old son will not stop studying the copy we borrowed from the library. Now that I realize the exponential value of the CD, I will purchase it.
