Welcome to Yellow House Book Rental! We are primarily a homeschool curriculum, rental service. However, we offer a variety of services. You can compare each one, at Yellow House Book Rental, and decide which is best for your family.
When it comes to getting Christmas gifts for your homeschool, (and even if you don't homeschool) it’s always best to go with things that will get some use, like books and games. Not only are these awesome educational tools, but they can be excellent teachers. I have used games, movies, and books as the teacher when I was sick or simply not feeling well. Sometimes I used them when we needed to take breaks or switch things up. If you’re looking for some unique, yet useful, gifts for your homeschool, check out my Christmas gifts ideas for your homeschool.
3 Books to Add to Your Christmas List
The following books are great for reading together as a family, or you can have your older ones read to the littles. Either way, they are all worth keeping on the shelf.
Rump discovers he has a gift for spinning straw into gold. His best friend, Red Riding Hood, warns him that magic is dangerous, and she’s right. With each thread he spins, he weaves himself deeper into a curse.
When a lawman comes to town asking about a murder, Mo and her best friend, Dale Earnhardt Johnson III, set out to uncover the truth in hopes of saving the only family Mo has ever known.
Families in town soon realize that like her great-aunt, Missy Piggle-Wiggle has inventive cures for all sorts of childhood (mis)behavior: The Whatever Cure and the Just-a-Minute Cure, for instance. What is a stressed out parent to do? Why, call Missy Piggle-Wiggle, of course! (fun book to read with your kids!)
There are so many benefits of getting books and games as Christmas gifts.

In case you choose not to read the whole post.... I have one very important holiday homeschool tip that I don't want you to miss.
Stop the regular homeschool routine for at least two weeks.
I recommend Thanksgiving through New Year's.
Now don't stop learning! But do it differently.
I recently created something just for you to help homeschool families take a break without feeling guilty for doing so.
Legends of Christmas- a family exploration of the season's traditions filled with coloring pages, writing prompts, activities, discussion questions, food fun and Scripture suggestions to help discuss the history of what's addressed as well as raise awareness of how these can relate to Christmas today, especially pointing to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It was designed to be used with kids of all ages. Use code CHRISTMASLEGENDS to get $4 off. Offer ends 12/5!
As you make your list of must-have gifts for your homeschool, don’t forget to add these to the top!
A home full of games and books are a must for all families. If you haven't already, add read aloud time to your homeschool routine. Making it a priority to sit down once a week to play with each other is time well spent. It keeps families connected and requires little effort or cost.
Pick up a game today and ask your kids to join you!
