Want to implement a Literature Based Education but don’t know where to start?  

Hi, I’m Erin, a veteran home educator. I have thirty years experience educating our ten children using living books as our core. 

Now it feels so natural to me, but I remember the beginning of our reading journey. I wanted to immerse my children in literature, especially Australian literature. But I was uncertain where to start. I sought direction and guidance. Along the way we learnt which books were worth our time (and which weren’t.) 

I’d love to share that experience and knowledge with you. Help you skip the hours of research and planning and get stuck straight into the fun part – the books!

I offer a consultation service. Let’s chat to determine your needs.

OR I can guide you in:

according to your request you will receive:

  • a phone chat

How knowledgeable are you about Australian Books?

Exceptionally knowledgeable.

A booklist or plan that could take you many hours to create I can do in a fraction of the time. This is due to my years of experience and deep immersion in literature.

How many books will be on the curriculum plan/booklist?

Ideally around 10-30 books. The number is dependent on which option you have selected and the books available for the focus

Will the books line up with the Australian curriculum?

Yes. If you require I can link to the National or NSW syllabus.

Though this will be more time consuming and may incur an increase in consultation rates

How long will it take to receive my curriculum plan/booklist?

You should have a personalised curriculum plan or book list back within the week.

*Can be longer subject to extenuating circumstances

What if I have extra ideas whilst you are still creating the curriculum plan/book list, can I contact you?

She manages to make integrating books into learning easy and natural. After working with her for many years I’m still impressed by her professionalism and promptness."
"Erin has so much invaluable knowledge and experience that she has gathered over her many years as a homeschooling Mum. Her helpful heart and intelligent mind coupled with her understanding and experience in the field of literature make her one of the most resourceful leaders in the Australian homeschooling community. She is approachable and kind and able to put together incredible book lists which will save time and money for many homeschooling parents. I highly recommend working with Erin."
"Erin has been a huge blessing in our homeschool journey. I wanted to include more Australian living books into our curriculum but I just had no idea where to start. That’s when I found Erin’s help. She went above and beyond and created a comprehensive and tailored reading plan for my family. She chose living books that fit with what we were learning in our homeschool across the year and also made sure that they were the right fit for my children’s ages. She then sourced these incredible books at our local library where I then picked them up, making it a seamless process for us. Erin is extremely experienced and I would highly recommend her consultation to any family who would like a tailored reading plan just for your homeschool."
