Hi, there! I’m Esther, a not-so-typical typical homeschool teenager with a passion for living for God and serving others.
I come from a typical large homeschool family—five brothers and a little sister—and enjoy being at the top of the line, where I can alternately boss and spoil everyone younger than me.
In more un-typical fashion, when I was eleven, we moved half-way around the world to New Zealand—leaving behind the 40-acre farm we had in the States. God was calling us to follow Him, and through several almost miraculous events we were able to come here to be a witness for Him.
Since Mom has been reading ever since she was three, it was only natural that she started reading to me before I can remember. We wore out quite a few books through our frequent pre-nap read aloud sessions—although, I suspect I probably wasn’t very kind to the books we read. Once I learned how to read for myself, Mom had a hard time getting me to bed at a decent time.
For some reason, typical homeschoolers tend to collect a lot of books, and since I’ve been homeschooled all the way through, we’ve managed to build up a stash ourselves.
However, I’ve always struggled to find truly worthwhile books through the library system, and partly out of that and partly out of the lack of a good search tool for books, this website was born. Hope you can find something helpful here!
P.S. If there’s anything book-related that I can help you with, feel free to shoot me an email. I’d love to be of service!
