Book List: The Enlightenment

Greetings Fellow Homeschoolers!   Following is a list of titles (organized by grade level) that will be used for the upcoming Year 5 unit study on The Enlightenment (see the outline tab at the top of this blog).  I will begin posting lesson plans in early September.  If your library does not carry these books, you may be able to obtain them through interlibrary loan.  Of course, all of these titles can also be purchased on Amazon.com or abebooks.com.

May God continue to bless your homeschool adventure!

– Gwen
