Very great overview on how you could approach different subjects. Does not go into much detail; is not a curriculum, but gives you some good ideas.

Even as a mostly conservative Christian, I found the tone of this book very off-putting.

A great resource for someone who wants to use the bible as there many focus.

Some good tips if you want to homeschool and you are a Christian... but she only has ONE perspective, and only HER perspective is right. And why would anyone want to teach children anything about other interpretations, instead of the RIGHT one (which is, of course, hers)? A parent's whole goal in parenting is to get their child to "accept Jesus", which happens around 5 years old in a Christian home (yes, she actually said that! As if it were a developmental step!). Anyway, get it from the librar ...more

I was hoping to get a lot out of this book, since I use The Golden Children's Bible as the basis for creating unit studies in our Catholic homeschool. I knew the author had a fundamentalist Protestant world view, because I had read one of her other books. I had gotten a lot out of it in spite of that. This one did not measure up. The boxed-in, fundamentalist mindset influences every page. I do not recommend it for anyone who is not a fundamentalist Protestant.
keeping homeschool simple with the bible as your main foundation
emphasis on skills not subjects -- leans toward our unschooling ways
some odd ideas I don't agree with
bibliography references are mostly to her own books (??)
still very helpful though

Lots of great tips for homeschoolers. I especially like the Choosing Curriculum chapter. Very practical with common sense ideas anyone can do. Definitely a book I will come back to again and again.

An excellent and encouraging book for homeschoolers who believe there is more to education than workbook after workbook after workbook. Lots of practical teaching tips here.

Pretty good with lots of ideas for using the Bible as basis and primary text for homeschool. I will check it out again when the kids get a bit older.
good resource to own. Several titles suggested by author as good resources.
