Child with backpack and a books pile

Just in time for the start of a new school year with new pencils, new protractors, new textbooks: our Back-to-School Backpack Booklist! As is our custom, the Back-to-School Backpack list features a few additions to the usual fiction lineup. This year, we have a short section on science books that covers a wide variety of ages, and we are also offering a short section on spiritual books to help your children be well rounded students of all subjects! It’s easy to overlook the need to educate and instruct in spiritual matters in the excitement of new math books, but this list will help you cover the bases.
