LEE & LOW's books for children are a valuable resource for homeschooled children because they depict the world as it is - diverse. Our books for homeschooling help children learn to accept other cultures, recognize the universality of the themes in our stories, and relate their own experiences to those of people different from themselves. The children's books we offer include realistic fiction, nonfiction, historical fiction, and poetry. In all, our goal is to establish natural connections among people of different races, cultures, and beliefs. We offer Spanish children's books and other children's books introducing different cultures.

Child Story Book Picks

Economics for Children
The economic status of families in the world ranges from very wealthy to extremely poor. These stories show people's enormous capacity for survival and celebrate the steely optimism of the human spirit.

Poetry is a powerful storytelling genre. Through poetry, poets may tell linear stories, depict history, pay tribute to family and regional foods, or define cultural and social traditions. Young people who read our children's picture books will experience the many ways in which poetry evokes special images.

Sports History
Most children love sports and learning about sports heroes. But sports history units often cover only the most well-known athletes, leaving out many important people entirely. Readers may not immediately recognize the names or faces of some of these lesser-known sports pioneers in these books, but their contributions to the sports world were nothing short of amazing.

A parent's natural instinct is to shelter children from the knowledge and effects of war, but unfortunately the world has made it impossible to ignore events beyond our control. These books for children show heroism and acts of kindness that outweigh the tragedies of war, and provide hope that eventually good will prevail.
