      AussieHomeschool Closing Down   11/14/2019

      All good things must come to an end and AussieHomeschool is no different. It is with much sadness yet even more necessity that this must be so.   As of Sunday evening, 17/11/2019 the Discussion Forums will close. The Classifieds, for now although not indeterminate, will continue as is.       Why is this happening now? In all honesty, it probably should have happened many years ago but I created this forum, which originally a homeschool classifieds forum for Aussies, about 20 years or so ago. I, along with others for whom I am gratefully indebted to, have spent many, many hours sweating, laughing, praying, crying, writing, apologising, pleading and speaking about this wonderful place. In this day and age of Social Media, along with our ages and therefore differernt stages of life, it is simply not viable in any way for it to continue. You may think differently and that's okay - you honestly have to have lived through some of the dramas and learning opportunities that we all have to truly appreciate why we have the standards that we do - they were borne out of necessity and not undertaken lightly. Much blood, sweat and tears have been spilt over this place. Even more friendships, learning, debate, love, prayer and great times have been had becuase of AussieHomeschool. No one could ever be more thankful for it than I.

      I understand you may feel frustration or even anger and for that I apologise, I feel you. But now it is YOUR time to go out and spread the word of home education and its benefits. Share YOUR story, tell those you know and don't know about homeschooling and what is has done for your family.   On behalf of John (my long suffering and patient husband), myself and the ENTIRE moderating team over the many years - I THANK YOU and WISH YOU ALL THE VERY BEST IN ALL YOUR ENDEAVOURS.   God Bless, Susan (HomeGrownKids /  AussieHomeschool)

Ruby Holler by Sharon Creech hb wdj ec $2….Ruby Holler is a Carnegie Medal-winning novel, and with its quirky protagonists and exciting journey, captures the imaginations of readers of all ages.   Brother and sister Dallas and Florida are the “trouble twins.” In their short thirteen years, they’ve passed through countless foster homes, only to return to their dreary orphanage, Boxton Creek Home. Run by the Trepids, a greedy and strict couple, Boxton Creek seems impossible to escape. When Mr. Trepid informs the twins that they’ll be helping old Tiller and Sairy Morey go on separate adventures, Dallas and Florida are suspicious. As the twins adjust to the natural beauty of the outdoors, help the Tillers prepare for their adventures, and foil a robbery, their ultimate search for freedom leads them home to Ruby Holler. This poignant story evokes a feeling as welcoming as fresh-baked bread. The slow change of the siblings—who are no angels—parallels the gradual building of mutual trust for the Moreys. The novel celebrates the healing effects of love and compassion. Although conflicts emerge, readers will have little doubt that all will end well for the children and the ‘grandparently’ Moreys. Ages 8-12. 


Holiday at Magpie Cottage by E. C. Matthews hb wdj $1…. Three Schoolgirls lend a cottage in the Yorkshire Dales for their holidays. Magpie Cottage lies in Yorkshire dale. The three girls run the holiday entirely on their own, under the kindly eye of the farmer’s wife, their near neighbour. On their journey there they meet Hugh and Sybil Thornton in unusual circumstances, and Clem, the eldest of the girls, believes that there is some mystery connected with the brother and sister. In the end her suspicions are justified, but she is amazed to learn that they have been the means by which Hugh and Sybil have been able to accomplish the secret purpose which brought them into the dale. Ages 12-15


The Henchmans at Home by Hester Burton hb wdj *as new* $1……The adventures of three children growing up in a Victorian household in England.

This an old-fashioned family history in six self-contained episodes, the continuity supplied by the characterisation of the three growing Henchmans and the certainties of their comfortable Victorian existence. From Rob's running away from home on his seventh birthday to Ellen's falling in love with the new doctor at a glittering ball, the story follows the conventionally high-spirited Henchmans for eleven years. With William, a university freshman, torn between the beckoning world and his father's medical practice, is more in the spirit of the whole. Others turn out to be just as interesting or more so….. one humorously when the star of the missionary benefit, Miss Veena Basu from India, is unmasked as Ron ill-advisedly attempting to aid his Aunt's favourite cause -- one with momentary suspense when a cast skating party is interrupted by a bank explosion that Rob is suspected of setting. Old fashioned, fun, drama and life. Ages 12-15


The Golden Horseshoe by Patrick Duggan hb wdj gc $1…set against a background Irish legends, this story is alive with excitement an comedy. Sharon is a tinker girl with a head full of dreams, which are fed by Rory, the travelling storyteller, as the tinkers sit around the camp fire at night. One day she throws an old horseshoe into a stream and when the water washes it she sees that is pure gold. …….this is a funny story of how she finds the horse who belongs to the horseshoe and how she travels to the the Land of the Young…..and is freed by a prince. It is a taste of legendary storytelling at its finest….a great way to inspire children to come up with their own stories of lands, animals of their imagination! Ages 8-10


The White Frame House by Rae Sedgwick hb wdj ec $1…No day was too long for B. J. Aiken. She was always fining something to do, from raising frogs in the bathtub to trying to fly from the hen-house roof, and the old white frame house in which she lived was kept humming!Tender, touching, and often funny, The White Frame House offers a rewarding glimpse into the special world of remarkable young girl. Ages 9-13


The Story of Doctor Dolittle by Hugh Lofting pb gc $1….Doctor John Dolittle loves animals. He loves them so much that his home and office overflow with animals of every description. When Polynesia the parrot teaches him the language of the animals, Doctor Dolittle becomes a world-famous doctor, traveling even as far away as Africa to help his friends.If the only version of "Dr Dolittle" you know is Eddie Murphy's you don't know Dr Dolittle. Even if you've see the Rex Harrison musical, if you haven't read the book, you don't know Dr Dolittle. Small, tubby, and shy, Dr Dolittle is a brilliant doctor whose love of animals loses him his human patients. But after his parrot Polynesia teaches him to speak animal languages, the Doctor becomes famous in the animal world, and travels across the world and even to the moon! Any child who is not given the opportunity to make the acquaintance of this rotund, kindly, and enthusiastic doctor/naturalist and all of his animal friends will miss out on something important. Ages 8-12


Alfred Hitchcock The Mystery of The Dead Man’s Riddle text by William Arden pb gc $2…. Three young detectives go on a high-stakes treasure hunt in order to restore a fortune to the rightful heirs. Brimful of goodness. Hitch appears outside of the last chapter and Aunt Mathilda saves the day unexpectedly at a particular point in the plot. The story is dense with action throughout. The illustrations depict the action excellently, without giving away plot points.The plot is fast and thrilling, with the clues in the form of rhyming slang. A brilliant story and one of the best in the series. Ages 10-14


Midnight is a Place by Joan Aiken pb ec $3….set in 19th-century England, Midnight Is a Place by Joan Aiken stars Lucas Bell, who lives with his guardian Sir Randolph Grimsby in a lonely old house called Midnight Court. When an unfamiliar carriage delivers a girl to their doorstep, Lucas thinks he finally has a companion-but she is not what he had in mind, and a twist of fate leaves the children adrift on the streets. These 19th century orphans (Aikens' specialty rather plucky) one English, one French, must learn to survive on their own when their cruel guardian's mansion goes up in flames. No real loss since the house was grim and forbidding and falling apart to begin with.  How these two children overcome their unfair share of ugly adversity and survive several frightening near-death experiences - one in the factory itself - is a hair-raising, well-told tale by an author who is an old experienced hand at spinning complicated webs full of heartbreak- though never without a glimmer of sly humour. Very much like a Dickens novel. Ages 11-15


Dragon’s Gate by Laurence Yep hb wdj ec $3…. Dragon’s Gate is a wonderful historical fiction book that engages the reader at the start. Laurence Yep created exceptional characters that are well-rounded and intriguing, but what will stay with you is the surprising twists in the plot line. The story line is tightly plotted with each event leading to the next. Yep uses foreshadowing to suggest what will happen in the story. In addition, Yep builds tension throughout the story as Otter witnesses and is part of numerous moments of cruel treatment of the Chinese workers. From the moment that the main character, Otter, arrives in America the conflict arises with the treatment of the Chinese by the European supervisors. Dragon's Gate is a great historical fiction work. Ages 10++


Elephant Bill by J.H. Williams pb ec $5….A book comes along like this once in a lifetime. You read it as a small child, or even as a adult, and never forget the images it conjures up, of a wonderful Englishman who lives in the mysterious forests of faraway Burma and of the kind native people who teach him about their lovely country. But most of all, you never forget the elephants! For this is a story about those magnificent creatures. Though he was officially known as Lt. Colonel J.H. Williams, the author was known to the world at large as “Elephant Bill”. That is because he spent 25 years living with the elephants in the mountains and forests of Burma. There he trained them to haul teak logs out of the isolated jungles.

Yet this is also a story of great courage because when the Second World War struck, it also came to Burma. The Japanese Imperial Army planned to confiscate the Burmese elephants, drafting them to make the bridges and railways they needed to invade India. When he learned of these plans to put his beloved animals to a war-like purpose, Elephant Bill knew what had to be done. The mighty kings of the jungle had to be evacuated to safety.Personal story of Colonel Williams' adventures in Burma. A bit tedious but quite interesting to read about his involvement with working elephants.


A Traveller in Time by Alison Uttley pb ec $6…. Set in Renaissance England Penelope Taberner Cameron is a solitary and a sickly child, a reader and a dreamer. Her mother, indeed, is of the opinion that the girl has grown all too attached to the products of her imagination and decides to send her away from London for a restorative dose of fresh country air. But staying at Thackers, in remote Derbyshire, Penelope is soon caught up in a new mystery, as she finds herself transported at unforeseeable intervals back and forth from modern to Elizabethan times. There she becomes part of a remarkable family that is, Penelope realises, in terrible danger as they plot to free Mary, Queen of Scot, from the prison in which Queen Elizabeth has confined her.

 Penelope knows the tragic end that awaits the Scottish queen but she can neither change the course of events nor persuade her new family of the hopelessness of their cause, which love, loyalty, and justice all compel them to embrace. Caught between present and past, Penelope is ever more torn by questions of freedom and fate. To travel in time, Penelope discovers, is to to be very much alone. And yet the slow recurrent rhythms of the natural world, beautifully captured by Alison Uttley, also speak of a greater ongoing life that transcends the passage of years. Ages 8-12


The Emperor’s Winding Sheet by Jill Paton Walsh pb ec $4….The Emperor's Winding Sheet is about the siege and fall of Constantinople in 1453 where 7000 men held back what has been estimated between 80,000-200,000 soldiers for nearly 2 months. Told from the point of view of Vrethiki, it quickly draws the reader into the story of this strange kingdom, language, and customs. At first Vrethiki is terribly resentful and seething with anger that the Emperor would keep him as a servant against his will simply because of a prophesy. In time, he comes to love and respect all those around him, especially Constantine. The author did an excellent job of conveying Vrethiki's caged animal feelings as well as his growing admiration and love for Byzantium and the other characters in the siege. It can be pretty intense at times, going into detail about what happened to the Christians who were caught during the siege. It's marketed as a Young Adult novel but reading it aloud, I’m sure you will enjoy it too! However, it is better for Ages 15++ especially those who are studying Medieval and Renaissance History.


Catherine Called Birdy by Karen Cushman pb *as new* $5…Catherine, a spirited and inquisitive young woman of good family, narrates in diary form the story of her fourteenth year—the year 1290. A Newbery Honour Book. This unusual book provides an insider's look at the life of Birdy, 14, the daughter of a minor English nobleman. Birdy is the 14-year old daughter of a 14th-century landowner in Merrie Olde Englande. While her father plots suitable arranged marriages for her and her mother tries to prepare her for being a wife by teaching her manners, needlework and herbal medicine, Birdy, the ultimate tomboy, plots ways to get rid of the suitors…Ages 12+


Island of the Blue Dolphin by Scott O’Dell pb gc $2…A beautifully told historical account of a strong Native American girl…The story is engaging, well written and is loosely based on the life of a woman who actually lived alone on an island off the California coast, La Isla de San Nicolas from1835 to1853, and came to be known as The Lost Woman of San Nicolas. Little is really known about her life due to her strange language, which no one could understand. It did not bear similarity to any known languages. In the post log of the book, O’Dell describes the woman’s life at the Santa Barbara Mission from the time that she was “rescued” to her death.

This is an excellent book for children in fourth through eighth grades. Girls will love the descriptions of the self-made clothing and jewellery that she wore. Ages 8-12


The Borrowers Avenged by Mary Norton pb ec $4…Pod and Homily Clock, as well as their daughter, Arrietty, are Borrowers, tiny people who live secretly in human houses and “borrow” food and any other items they need. They were forced to flee their first home when a housekeeper discovered them. After a harrowing journey, they found the home of their extended family in a nearby cottage, but a famine forced the Clocks to move yet again. They end up in a model village called Little Fordham, but are kidnapped by the owners of a rival model village. After escaping in a hot air balloon, they temporarily return to Little Fordham while they search for a new home. This is the fifth and final book in the series. Ages 8-12


We’ll Meet in England by Kitty Barne pb gc ( signed by author) $7...  This story, dealing with the escape from Norway of two children of English-Norwegian parentage, puts all the emphasis on the preparations for departure, the attempts to forestall suspicions of a neighbouring Nazi agent - A good adventure story. Ages 10++


Fredrika’s Children by Anna Lisa Warnlof hb wdj gc $5……Fredrika gets caught in the rain with her baby step-brother and several other young children who become attached to her for various unusual reasons. When she takes shelter with the children at her mother's home she decides to spend the summer looking after her new young charges. Assisted by her friend Martin, she turns out to be completely capable of handling the children, much more so, it appears, than their parents, to whom they dish out occasional advice. The story, includes anecdotes, adventures and the delightful care of the children by Fredrika….A joy to read! A mothers read, or/and high school girls!


Monkey’s Perfect by Nora Rock hb gc $2…Mark and his sister Julie start their own archaeological dig near that of their aunt and uncle. Not only do they uncover a Roman mosaic but they also discover that at night they can travel back to Roman times. Ages 8-11


Whitey by Ernest Claes hb wdj gc $2……‘Whitey’ by Ernest Claes is a picaresque novel about youthful escapades and growing up. Set in the village of Zichem in De Kempen, the Flemish region where both the author and his character were born, it is one of the prototypes of the immensely popular regional novel. The story of the hero’s childish pranks is a classic of Flemish literature. Ages 10-14


Dingo: The Dog Who Conquered a Continent by Jackie French pb ec $4…..

This is the story of Loa, who heads off across the sea in his canoe when the girl he loves marries another. He takes only his spears and one of the dogs from around the camp to eat if he gets hungry, or to throw to threatening sharks or crocodiles. 

But when a storm blows boy and dog out to sea, both must learn to survive in a strange new world as partners — and even as friends.


‘Beautifully and simply written…French has brought the history of early Australian culture to life. The kind of tale that will stay with young readers.’

The combination of short chapters and fast paced storyline make it both an appealing story to read aloud, and also one that should be enjoyed by the more independent reader. Ages 9-13


On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness by Andrew Peterson (The Wingfeather Saga book 1) pb gc $6….This is a war story. A compelling, intriguing, deeply moral war story. This is the kind of story that helps us believe that we could stand and be counted if called upon to do so. This is a story that feeds the imagination and stretches the soul and it is a beautiful testimony to the power of family. It is a very good story to have in our moral imaginations. 

A clean, concise writing style together with a fast moving, imaginative plot. This to an excellent story. Inline with Narnia and the Lord of the Rings, it also falls between them in many ways. It is not allegory that the Narnia universe presents yet has more direct overtones of a supreme and good deity than LOTR. It is also a midpoint for depth of the created universe and the reading audience. Where it passes them both by is the outright humour of the entire story shown in the characters, background and language. Ages 10++


Tales from the Marble Mountain by Hugh Gardner (Part 1 & 2) hb wdj gc $2…

Amazing read aloud. Ages 10+   https://www.morgansrarebooks.com/products/six-days-between-a-second-by-marjory-odea


The Year of the Currawong by Eleanor Spence hb wdj ec $10…. The Kendall children have just moved into Currawong Crossing when they find themselves in a mystery involving the ownership of an old silver mine.This tells the tale of four siblings, who move with their history professor father and artist mother, to a country place in Australia where their father gets a temporary position at the local university.

Sixteen year old Elizabeth is trying to find her place in this family of high achievers. She had tried many different hobbies and lost interest in all of them. Then she meets the local firefighters wife who introduces her to pottery and a new world opens for her. Next is Alexander, a history whiz like his father. He enjoys acting out famous history scenes in the garden when he can coax his siblings to join him. Unfortunately Alex gets teased and bullied at school because of his intelligence. His sister Terry is a budding author and finds a story worth writing about an empty, local silver mine. Of course there is plenty of exploring of the mine and an old hotel.

Chess is the youngest family member. He easily wins over all he meets and is a very likeable younger brother.

In this time of cyber bullying, teens not fitting in with peers and the pc gaming craze, it's interesting to read of all of those components happening in a different form to the siblings. This book was ahead of it's time and, there is plenty to pull from that is just as relevant to todays teens, Tweens and younger.

The Great Toozy Takeover by Rosalie Kelly hb wdj gc $4….The author portrays America in the twenties when life was prosperous and the future bright.
