Books, wolves and chocolate: Some of our recent regional homeschooling fun

The week of January 20-26 in York County was Buck-A-Book Week, a fundraiser for the York County Literacy Council. We were thrilled to find out that it is open to homeschooling families as well as local public- and private-school students, and our daughter, Sarah, raised more than $175 for the council’s programs by reading 10 books!

As a special thank-you to her sponsors, we took photos of Sarah with each book and posted a special thank-you message. You can see all the cool things we read on Our School at Home here!

Some of the books we read came from a recent trip to the Barnes & Noble in Lancaster. We’d stopped there after spending the day in Lititz touring two amazing attractions – the Wolf Sanctuary of PA and the Wilbur Chocolate Museum.

These are GREAT day trips – I hope you’ll read more about them here!


My name is Joan and I'm a lifelong Yorker. Throughout high school and college, I swore I was getting out of here as soon as possible. Now, a few years later, I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be. I love my town, and I hear every day from readers who love their towns, too. So please, connect with me and let's share what makes life in York County great. I'm here to help you enjoy this place as much as I do!
