In today’s brand new episode of the Read-Aloud Revival, you’ll hear:

  • should you let your kids read ahead of the family read-aloud?
  • how many books can little kids keep up with at once?
  • the simplest way to help your kids fall in love with books (and help *you* fall in love with homeschooling)

I’m also sharing our winter Family Book Club picks in RAR Premium.

We always say this, but it’s worth repeating: our book club selections are cream-of-the-crop…

…and this winter it’s no different! 😍

With thousands of happy members inside RAR Premium, we’ve heard a lot of great stories about how their kids are falling in love with books, and how moms like you are falling in love with homeschooling.

This note from Amber is one of my favorites:

“I think the biggest and most surprising difference from joining RAR Premium is actually in my husband. He is so connected to what the kids and I are doing now, and he wants to watch the Author Events and be a part of the Family Book Clubs.

I regret waiting so long to join.”

And here’s another one from Sara:

“Before we joined, I wondered if we’d use it all that much because my kids were just 6 and 2. I wish I would have jumped in sooner! The master classes are the best thing I have ever done for my homeschool.

Just try it! You really have nothing to lose, but a world of goodness to gain.”

And the clincher is this one from Kameron:

“Membership here is worth more than I pay for curriculum for a year. I promise you will not regret it.”

Good stuff, right? Your kids can fall in love with books, and you can fall in love with homeschooling. Join us in RAR Premium.

We’re waiting for you!

Each season in RAR Premium, we read 1 novel and 3 picture books as part of our Family Book Club. We choose books with kids of all ages in mind, because we believe that families connect best when they read together. 💚

Here’s what’s up next in our Family Book Club:

Premium Members also get a Family Book Club Guide to go with each of these, and we always wrap up by live streaming the author or illustrator of that book, so your kids can ask their own questions.

There’s just nothing else like it.

… but actually, RAR Premium isn’t just for your kids.

In fact, most of our members would probably tell you that the person who gets the most from being a member is Mama herself! 😎

That’s because we offer regular Master Classes that help you teach from rest and lead with confidence in your homeschool.

There’s a whole library of Master Classes available to you (it’s a huge library!) when you join RAR Premium. You can see the list of what’s included in the library right here.

(We hear often that a single one of these classes is worth the price of membership… and we’ve got a whole library of them for you to watch at anytime!)

Brand new this coming January, however, is something a little extra special.

Circle with Sarah are our upcoming monthly coaching sessions to help you teach from rest, get to the things that matter most in your homeschool, and best of all…

…help you fall in love with your homeschooling life.

If you want to make reading aloud the very best part of your upcoming school year, we are your people and RAR Premium is your place. Come join us!

You’ll find out why our members say things like this…
