Homeschoolers love stacks of books. Library books. New school books. Books for simply reading for pleasure. But sometimes purchasing and collecting the books for that curriculum list can be a bit overwhelming. I have a frugal answer for you. A homeschool library start up from Dover Publications.
~Don’t miss the discount code plus the giveaways for each age group at the end!! We received this amazing Homeschool Library Start Up For All Ages from Dover Publications in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are our own and we are so excited about the books for all our ages! Please see our disclosure policy.
Did you know that Dover Publications has many, many classic titles? And they are frugal for the homeschool budget! We are filling out our homeschool library with Book House books, My Father’s Dragon, Call of the Wild and many others that match the reading outlined in our curriculum.
There are several titles I did not realize that Dover Publications had available. Like the Book House books I grew up on! So many classics available at thrift prices. I bet you can pick out some of your favorites below…
Homeschool Library – Ages 4-7
The Real Mother Goose
My Father’s Dragon
My Book House – Story Time
My Book House – In the Nursery
Bible Fun Activity Book
This wonderful stack of books holds a special place in my mama heart. See, the My Book House books are ones that my grandmother would read to me. The wonderful stories of my childhood. I can still hear her voice when we were at her house in the afternoon at nap time. Or if we had a memory-making sleepover. Plus the wonderful Real Mother Goose and Raggedy Ann. Classics! My Father’s Dragon is on the suggested reading of many homeschool curriculum lists. Top it off with a Bible Fun Activity book and you have a wonderful collection fro the younger age group.
Homeschool Library – Ages 8-11
I just happen to have children that fall into each of these age groups. What a joy these books are! Do you see some of your favorite, classic books too?

My children and I LOVE stacks of books. How about you?
Rachel R says
There are too many good books to pick just one! I think Jungle Book or Treasure Island would be enjoyed most right now though.
Shannon Hamm says
Whether it is classics are new to me books, I’m always looking for wonderful literature to introduce to my kids. I saw lots of titles that I am not familiar with, but which look great. I would love to expand our library!
Laura Bolin says
I love all the classic options! Whenever we read a classic I’m always impressed by the writing.
Andrea Briley says
So many great books – I saw one by Nesbit that we would love to own. My boys love animal stories and there are lots of those to choose from.
Hannah C. says
This is an amazing idea! Makes it easy on the moms to not have to scramble around to find classic books 👍🏻😀
Thanks for the giveaways! We can’t get enough books!!
I need to explore Dover more. I can’t believe all these classic options they have – so awesome!
We LOVE books and see lots great ones to add to our library!
Marisela N Caylor says
Such a great selection of books! We loved Pollyanna.
Im interested in the Sherlock books
Dover is publishing My Book House?! That is awesome news!
I see that they also have the Raggedy Ann and Andy books, which were popular with my oldest but hard to find a the library. So many choices of classics, it’s hard to pick just one 🙂
I know! Isn’t it great? So many wonderful, childhood classics to choose from.
I spied some new to me titles and some that have been on our wish list. I didn’t know Dover carried such gems!
I checked out the selection and I saw another work by Ludwig Bemelmas. I would like to check that one out plus all the other new to me, titles!
I was just looking into this company the other day would absolutely love to add the classics to our start up library.
These look like amazing sets of books!
I’ve been wanting to read my father’s dragon to my son! Thank you!
I would love to have a library of children’s classics!
Thanks for the good info & giveaway!
While I enjoyed Raggedy Ann as a child, I would have to point out that the first volume does contain racially offensive dialect and illustrations. Parents may want to preview.
Heather Harris says
I love the lists you’ve put together.
My children love Doctor Doolittle! All of the other titles listed for their age group are not familiar to us. It would be wonderful to discover other Dover classics!
Sherry Wilson says
My oldest, who is 11, would be over the moon with these books, especially The Secret Garden and The Louisa May Alcott short stories.
Alicia Buerkle says
I love Dover Publications! I have daughters in each of these three age groups and know ALL of the books would be enjoyed!
That’s another beauty of it! (I also have children in each of these age groups 🙂 )
Tina M says
I love so many of these books and have children in all these age ranges. It’s hard to choose a favorite but I would love the My Book House books.
This is amazing! And exactly why I buy Kellogg’s cereal at Walmart all the time. You can’t compete with free books for kids.
I love the selection! I would buy the Burgess 26 book collection
Oh I would love the My Book House titles. I have been trying to track down a complete set for years.
Libby Jones says
a b c books, learn to read books
Judith Martinez says
They have tons of good books. The one that caught my eye this time is the Aesop’s fables. I don’t have a good copy of those.
Alisha B says
There are so many great books on the dover site. Two of them that really caught my eye were Cut and Make a Human Skeleton, and Shakespeare’s Stories for Young Readers
With Dover there is just so many! But their stories about animals are always a go to
So many great books for all ages! I can’t believe I’ve never read Raggedy Ann! I think I’m going to have to find that one for my daughter.
Michelle S says
I know my kids would love the Burgess books! I had no idea Dover had so many wonderful titles!!
Emily Seawell says
Love, love, love all of the classics to choose from!! Never heard of Dover until today. Thanks for this fabulous opportunity to win. Keeping my fingers crossed!
My Father’s Dragon has been on our wish list. 🙂
Tara H says
We would enjoy any of these!! I have kids in all these age groups.
Nicole B says
So many great books!! Recently heard about My Father’s Dragon would love to have these.

Call of the wild is on our list but it looks like there are a bunch of other great books!
Hailey White says
The My Book House look fabulous!
Lara M says
We love all the classics. There were some great looking choices I’m not familiar with yet. I’d love to have more like that in our library!
Erin Cluff says
We’re loving the Titanic over here, so I’m pretty excited about that one!
Katie M says
The nature and science books looked great! Both kids would be very interested.
Gina Arkell says
I love that they have groups. It’s so hard sometimes to figure out which books to get so it’s nice to have a place to start from.
