Recommended Books

Here’s our list of books recommended by our membership. Whether you’re new to home education or a long-time homeschooler looking for renewed inspiration, check out some of these books. We’ve also included some Canadian authors (near the bottom).


Inclusion of any business on this list does not constitute an endorsement by OFTP. We share this information to let homeschoolers know what’s available, not necessarily what’s recommended. Although it benefits the resource provider to be listed here, it is not an advertisement to serve the purposes of the provider, it is a listing to serve the informational needs of homeschoolers looking for assistance or learning opportunities outside of the home.
