    Excellent source of information!

    I am considering homeschooling my son and am very new to the concept. After reading this book, I feel well equipped to make decisions on whether this is really a viable option for our family, and if so, how to go about implementing homeschooling in a way unique to our child's learning style. The resources listed in this text were extremely informative, and the manner in which it is written makes it a pleasure to read. I consider it an integral part of the library of information that I have collected thus far.

    Beginning Homeschoolers Dream

    This book is the best for homeschooling information! It provides everything from state laws to recommended books, pre packed curriculums, and even websites. It also has coupons in the back for some of the sources listed! It has been the biggest help for someone who is just starting out.
