A few months after publishing this book, I felt myself reaching that state of pajama-wearing, never-showering despair that I reach every February. At that point, several of my friends told me I should go read my own book. Maybe they were joking, but I did it anyway. I'm glad I did! There were definitely a few points that encouraged me, especially my reminder, "This is a marathon, not a sprint." I went back to my bare minimums, and looked at all the plans I'd laid out for the rest of the year, an ...more

I won a copy of this book.

This book is really thorough in terms of setting up a home school. If you or someone you know is starting to this about it, I'd really recommend picking up this book. Knepper has a really nicely organization style to help you choose what kind of home school you would like have. She's realistic about how your ideas may differ from how your child learns and give plenty of tips and suggestions on how to make that work.

If you could only read one homeschooling book, this would be the one! Wonderful for anyone at any stage of homeschooling, excellent for those starting out. Worth its weight in gold.

I received a copy of this book free from a GoodReads giveaway for an honest review, thank you for the chance to win, and to read it.

An excellent resource for anyone who is considering or is involved in homeschooling. Practical advice, helpful planning ideas, and great tips, a must read for anyone wanting to get the most out of homeschooling!

I liked this book so much I passed it on to my mom who is homeschooling my brother and sister! She had nothing but praise for it!

Required Homeschool Reading

After a year of having school go off the rails more times than I could count, this book is helping me reassess and figure out where we need to go and how we need to get there. I feel like I can successfully organize myself without falling completely apart. Wonderful resource that I know I will come back to every year.

Really helpful book -- just what I needed to read in preparation for another year of homeschooling. This definitely appealed to my love of list-making, and after doing the exercises in the book, I now have the upcoming school year planned with more detail than I have ever managed before. I feel calm and excited about the year ahead. Highly recommended for homeschooling parents!

Excellent and thought-provoking. Not a primer for homeschooling, rather a theoretical and philosophical starting point...great for narrowing a personal focus and growing purpose outward.
