We use the Robinson Curriculum method, so she reads for 1 1/2 hours right now. The other half hour goes toward science, which she will be reading Exploring Creation With Human Anatomy and Physiology by Jeannie Fulbright.
Only about five books are actually from the Robinson Book List. I usually take away and add some others. I try to keep books that are both educational and well written. This year, I want MaryEllen to focus on Missionaries, so I will be adding more as she goes.
