This one's for Louise and Sarah!
I have been encouraged to post the books we actually read in AO1.
Our booklist followed the Ambleside Online list with very few variations in this year - it is merely our Australianised version!
We read Genesis and the Gospels.
We used a number of wonderful books here. I'll post on these separately.
