Grades 5-8 Book Hearth Bundle


Bundle & Save with these 3 Book Hearth Guides for Grades 5-8. Each guide offers you a flexible plan and saves you time as you explore beautiful stories.

Each Book Hearth Guide gives you creative teaching ideas for a 2-5 week lesson block based on one book. The books are chosen for their beautiful writing and heartfelt connections to children (and adults!) of all ages.  

The Grades 5-8 Book Hearth Guides Bundle includes:

Coupling the book with our Book Hearth Guide gives you a simple way to plan a whole month of learning without stress and overwhelm. Choose which themes and connections you want to focus on, get a copy of the book, and begin exploring. 

What is the Book Hearth? The Book Hearth approach is a unique, comprehensive way to bring stories and lessons to your children or students. This approach was created by two homeschool moms to give you lesson plans for a month of learning experiences with children in different grades.

Book Hearth Guides show you the simplicity of centering learning around just one book for one block. You can pick a single book for the whole family and build your main lesson work around that story while delivering the lessons individually to each child. 

Each Book Hearth Guide is built on 5 anchor points: Story, Self, Senses, Strengths, and Sharing. When you intentionally integrate these anchor points into your teaching, your students will gain knowledge, build academic and life skills, and take part in memorable learning experiences.

As parents, you’ll discover the freedom of building multi-age homeschooling blocks around just ONE book. Book Hearth Guides offer you flexible plans to save you time. And with this bundle, you'll have at least 3 months' worth of lessons at the ready.


  1. Gain knowledge, build academic & life skills
  2. Take part in memorable experiences together as a family
  3. Build a family culture of learning, living, and loving through literature
