One of the most awarded books in children’s fiction, Britfield is about family, friendship, loyalty, and courage. Entertaining our readers with fast-paced adventure novels, Britfield also educates with accurate history, geography, and culture while fostering creativity and critical thinking. This 7-book series will be followed by 7-movies (2022).
About the Britfield Series
When the first book in the series was released in 2019, one of my teenaged sons had the opportunity to read it and share his opinion. You can get the inside scoop and see how he liked it at Britfield & the Lost Crown Review.
The second book in the series, Britfield & the Rise of the Lion, is launching June 15, 2021. You can pre-order the book and download the first two chapters for free.
What makes this series unique is that it opens a whole interactive world for your kids to learn about geography, history, architecture, and culture. They can read the book and then jump on the site at Britfield.com to explore the landforms, buildings, or surrounding towns. Your tweens and teens can actually see where the story takes place! It’s an exciting way to present an adventure novel.
Plus, the themes of friendship, family, loyalty, and courage are likely exactly what you’re looking for in your homeschool book themes.
The Importance of Adding Creativity into Your Homeschool
Believe it or not, creativity is the top skill of the future. According to research, children have been decreasing in critical thinking, creativity, and innovation in the last 20 years. Yet, most companies are overwhelmingly looking to hire creative candidates. In other words, they are looking for creativity in your background.
Homeschool graduates have an advantage here! Now more than ever, it’s important to add innovation, creative learning, entrepreneurship, and more into your homeschool plans.
Did you know that if you play a musical instrument, and you’re applying to Apple, you’ll be preferred 10 to 1? Homeschool moms, we can make this happen in our kids’ education! Most of us are already adding in all the creative outlets for our kids to explore and learn – keep doing it! (As always, don’t forget to check out SQUILT music)
