Read in September, 2009

As a homeschooling parent I've seen hundreds of "how to homeschool" books but this was the first comprehensive book covering Classical Education in a way that's cohesive and easy to follow. Susan Wise Baure, along with her mother, Jesse Wise, sytematically take the reader from preschool through high school and give very specific information on what to teach, when to teach it and how to go about doing it in order to give a child a well-rounded classical education at home.
Included are numerous references and ratings for teaching materials, which makes pulling together a cohesive home-based curriculum so much easier than trying to wade through the endless offerings at Amazon.com or make a snap decision at a homeschool conference.
My oldest is only 4.5 years old and my copy is already dog-eared and showing signs of wear because I refer to this constantly!

Even if you're not a homeschooling parent, this is a must-read.
