"My name is Angelina Ballerina," my son Chobie spent the better part of six months insisting when asked what his name was.
If your kids are anything like mine, then books provide a huge source of play inspiration. Chobie loves trying on all of the identities of his favorite characters. He gets to identify with all kinds of people, it helps him try on different roles and develop empathy. But, it's also nice to see characters who you identify with already.
With all of the books out there about the first day of kindergarten, not to mention most books where children go to school every day, it's been tricky to find books for Chobie to identify with as a homeschooling kid.
Well, I've been doing some investigating and have come up with this list of picture books about homeschooled kids.
Kandoo Kangaroo's "First Day" of Homeschool by Susan Ratner
I am Learning all the Time by Rain Perry Fordyce (links to the author's website, non-affiliate)
Ippie Unschooled by Nicole Olson
The First Day of Homeschool by Michelle Frederickson
I am a Homeschooler by Julie Voetberg
Snowflake Bentley by Jaqueline Briggs Martin
Allison's Story: A Book about Homeschooling by John Lurie
It's not a huge list, but it's what I've been able to come up with. I've yet to get my hands on a copy of any of these, so I can't lend my personal recommendation. It is worth noting that Susan Ratner's book is a Christian oriented book.
