Homeschooling and reading go hand in hand. I don’t know how people who claim to not be readers attempt homeschooling. I don’t know how people can attempt to live life not being readers actually.
That being said, I read maybe a little *too* much in the grand scheme of things. And I’ll find any connections between something I can do while going over something my preschooler can do.
Like bugs and a Brian Kiteley novel.
So while I’m reading, “These beetles secrete a chemical, cantharidin, which blisters most skin.”
Kiddo is doing this:
When I read, “The beetles I caught today had lost their way. Several hundred Cow Dung Beetles in flight. Miles and miles of food, but not the sort they can digest.”
Kiddo has this action going:
Still Life With Insects isn’t as much about bugs as it might seem, but at least when Kiddo looks up from her bug studies, there’s an apparent theme in the house while I devour more literature.
