I picked up this book to see what others are saying about homeschooling. This was very down-to-earth and offered a lot of great advice and some resources. It is written from a Christian perspective, but I think that many of her ideals are universal. It seems most appropriate for the over-6 crowd.

This is a great book for new homeschooling families. I wish I'd discovered this book when I first started. Lots of info, insights, and recommended reading suggestions. Humorous, too.

This was yet another book about homeschooling that I borrowed from the library, and after reading it I'm glad I didn't purchase it. While I found this book to be informative and down-to-earth, it was written from a Christian perspective. As such the author has woven her own beliefs into this book's pages; as a secular homeschooler that was a bit off-putting at times. I found myself skipping sentences, paragraphs, and even an entire chapter because those particular passages didn't apply to me.

This is the book I read after I have read too many classical education books! Diana reminds me to have some fun with learning and not take myself so seriously. We all need that!
Not bad, but not for me. Letting this one go back to the library unfinished.

I thought this was a great find at my library : ) It is a book filled with every aspect of homeschooling (logistics, curriculum, going with the flow, relationships among children and spouse, etc.). It's a great beginner book to get thinking about what homeschooling looks like as a whole... beyond just the academics of it. She has a lot of great further recommended reading which I'm always a fan of. I would say it's a good summary book and then pick your further reading for more in depth knowledg ...more
