I just started thinking about homeschooling my kids. This book gave me all the information that I was looking for. It also had an extensive list of resouce materials that you could get to further your research into a particular topic. The book also got me even mre excited about my decision to homeschool. It was very well written and worth the time I took to read it. A must have!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

When I first began to research homeschooling I read several books, most of which had the same message and had little resource information. This book, however, is amazing! It is a gold mine of necessary (and very interesting) information. You get to read interviews with several homeschooling families who have differing experiences and methods, which is extremely important to anyone who is wondering if homeschooling is for them. You read about the different learning styles, issues of socialization and frequently asked questions. You are provided with local associations and your state-specific regulations. This book is a MUST for any homeschooling family 'wanna-be' or if you just want to know more about it. Don't go on your journey without it!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
