Read the Rainbow homeschoolers

Welcome! We're a multiracial, eclectic homeschooling, and homesteading family. I created Read The Rainbow Magazine as a way to help other families incorporate more diversity and inclusion in their homes through books. I believe in reading aloud as a family and I've seen the value in a literature-based education. Here you'll find book recommendations, links for unit studies in my Teachers Pay Teachers store, and my American history magazine is available in the Blurb bookstore. 

Because a read-aloud just isn't complete without food, I have included over 20 recipes to accompany your read-alouds, in our Read the Rainbow magazine. Our

book recommendations have been picked to represent the human rainbow as much as possible. 

You can find Read The Rainbow magazine on Blurb!


The e-book version can be found here

We're constantly creating art printables to go with book recommendations, unity studies on topics you might not find for children elsewhere, and creating even more booklists! You can find all of these by visiting our Teachers pay Teachers store, by clicking the links below!
