This is a good overview of what homeschooling is and how it works. The authors go over several of the most common education philosophies and introduce different styles and structures for implementing those at home. Anyone looking into homeschooling should get to know the different education approaches, such as the Charlotte Mason method, the Classical Education method, the Waldorf method, and the Montessori method.

Useful guide. Quick read. Many links and helpful quotes from actual homeschoolers. Borrowed from library but might consider owning for the extensive resources list in the back of the book.

I love how it celebrates the individual child as a unique individual with unique talents to be explored and unique learning preferences.

Way too anti public school. I am homeschooling now out of necessity and actually enjoying it more than I thought I would. But this book was over the top in saying that the only way a kid can get a good education is through homeschooling. My kids have been in public school for 4 years and had amazing teachers.

This is THE book that convinced me to homeschool our daughter. The very first page listing the benefits of homeschooling showed me that this is what I wanted for her. Make sure to check out e author's website and Free podcasts!
