Some parents or guardians are looking for free Christian homeschool resources. Homeschooling can be costly, especially for families with multiple children. Free resources can ease this financial burden significantly. So, since parents desire to educate their children within a framework that aligns with their religious beliefs and values, I've done a little bit of research and came up with some of these resources:

Boys Without Names
by Kashmira Sheth
This is part of my children's homeschool reading curriculum. One of them loves this book as soon as he started reading it. He spent a lot of time reading it until he finished the whole book. And he likes reading over and over, too. It's one of his favourites. This is a powerful book that is too rare these days. It reveals some of the experiences happening to children around the world today. It can open your heart to the plight of those who are suffering. It is filled with tales of ancient India. All the characters are so true to life. It is really important that young people should learn about the world around them.

Join him as he stows away to the fair in a wheelbarrow full of vegetables, nearly flies away on a kite, has a mishap with a firecracker, and is rescued from the river by a houseboat family.
