We use the Robinson Curriculum method, so he reads for 1 1/2 hours right now. The other half hour goes toward science, which he will be reading Exploring Creation With Human Anatomy and Physiology by Jeannie Fulbright.
Only about four 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. I believe that was Mr. Robinson’s intent when he looked for books for his own children.
