    Brilliant!!!-A vital tool for ALL homeschoolers!

    Cindy West is a captivating speaker and teacher, and now author. She has expertly put to paper an astounding book that immediately captures the readers attention. I have read and re-read this book and find new ideas and information every time I pick it up. Cindy is a wealth of knowledge and she has graciously shared a great deal of it with the public in a very practical way. The amount of research that went into this work is astounding, as is evident by the multiple pages of resources and references given. This book is beneficial to all home educators and with children on every level and age. Nearly every idea presented can be made to fit any child in some way. I have been involved with homeschooling for 14 years, yet this book has inspired and blessed me in many ways. I highly recommend it to anyone that is homeshooling their child(ren), or simply wanting to supplement their education. This book needs to be on every teacher's shelf and referenced often.

    Awesome Homeschooling Resource!

    As a Homeschooler for the past nine years I was pleased that there was a new book for me to read, but once I began the journey into Homeschooling Gifted and Advanced Learners I was amazed at all the wonderful information that I was provided. Sometimes at nine years into something you think you have it all down and know what you are doing, and well maybe you do, but I have gained a new enthusiasm for my homeschool and am ready to delve into areas that have become known to me through this wonderful new resource. I highly recommend it to all individuals and families that are currently homeschooling or are considering homeschooling the children in their lives. It is a wealth of practical tips, ideas, links and suggestions on planning, curriculum choices, teaching methods, organization and implementation.
