This is not a read-for-pleasure book. This is a "I need to find a book/magazine/website/audio recording/video to help supplement my kid's education in any given subject" book. It's exactly what it claims to be in its title: a Home Learning Source Book.

I really only flipped through this book's pages after purchasing it, but I can already tell this will be one of those often-used books that I'll refer to often when trying to figure out what direction to go in next when looking to create a rich and...more

This is a great resource book if you are looking for lots of detail and don't get overwhelmed by massive content. I wanted to see how this book compared to Rebecca Rupp's "Home Learning Year by Year", which I still prefer. If you are looking for some new ideas and resources, I would borrow this from the library (it's a little big to own!). Also, this book was published around 1998, so the internet resources are probably a bit outdated. But on the flip side, an advantage is the recommended book r...more

I read this book as I was just getting into homeschooling and it was wonderful. Mostly, it's a product review of different books, games, programs, magazines, etc, but it's the size of a major city PHONE BOOK. The parts I loved were the snippets from her homeschool journal that were liberally sprinkled throughout, because they showed how much learning takes place when you follow your kids' lead, take it easy and just spend time together.
Christina
The size of a phone book! This book of homeschool resources is extremely helpful and exhaustive. I will definitely be going back to it for suggestions as time passes. I especially enjoyed reading the author's own experiences and ideas sprinkled throughout.
Darla
Not so complete; thoroughly secular. If it were complete, I could have found info on several Christian based books/ programs I was curious about, too. So very good, but not exactly complete.
Moriah
I'm sure it's supposed to be helpful, but the sheer amount of info in this book is overwhelming. Perhaps more useful if you're looking for something really specific. Like the coding system used.
Nicole
The resources listed are helpful, but some are outdated. One of the things that makes this a gem is the excerpts from her journals of the years she homeschooled her children.
Jen Barker
So much awesome info and ideas. A little outdated now, but the author's suggestions and journals alone are worth getting the book.
Michelle Polk
When she says COMPLETE, she means complete. It is a great book to follow and use as reference for your homeschooling experience.
Sonja
Good reference source, but I found my friends who already homeschool to be better sources.
Jenny
A great book for teachers and parents whether you homeschool or not.
Dawn
Wonderful resources and ideas.
