Comments, Credits, and Notices
This list does NOT include books that have been updated, but where Sonlight switched from an older version to a newer version that doesn’t line up.. I have tried to link the copy Sonlight used whenever possible, but as many of the versions are out of print, have been updated, or very difficult to find, this was not always possible, so many of the covers may look different. I can not guarantee that the linked book will always match up with the version in your guide.
This list is not an exhaustive list of all books Sonlight has ever used. It is a mostly complete list of books that were once used, but are no longer included. Please let me know if you find any

Comments, Credits, and Notices
This is not a complete list of every book Sonlight has used or sold. Some of the older catalogs (especially before 1996) were not able to be located. Also, several books were dropped and then added back into Sonlight over the years, so you might find books on this list that are still in use. Some books have been moved from one level to another, or switched from a read-aloud to a reader, or vice versa. Not all electives, math, science, or resources have been listed. There are a few links I could not find, and a few more I had to guess on.
There are amazon affiliate links in this list. Please be aware of this. It does not cost you anything to purchase a book through amazon from this list, although I will be given a very small amount of money if you do (really small, often less than a quarter per purchase). But, you are always free to not use the links, or to source your books from the many other websites out there. I provide the links not only to pretend it’s going to someday pay me back for the many hours I put into it (It probably never will, nor did I do this for money), but also as a way to quickly figure out which book you are looking for, especially with books with similar names and authors. It can be very hard to find used books, so having a link to a specific photo or author’s name can be very helpful and save a ton of time. I know many times I’ve wanted to add on some books from this list, and it was a lot of work to have to search up several books on my own. This list will hopefully provide an easier and faster way of doing this.
This list could not have been completed without the help of the hard work and hours friends from the old Sonlight forums put into making the original list. I would like to credit the original list creators as: Chelle (NZ), Tara (Sonlight Forums) and Jill (US). This new list is also partially my own work, Veronica (OnceUponAHomeschooler). Please do not copy or use this list without giving credit to these people who were happy to provide this list for use. Please do not redistribute or alter this list (and links) without permission. You may email me for a different version (.docx, .html, etc). Again, my contact information is ​​, or through facebook at ​​.
