    Great book if you are considering homeschooling or already doing it!

    Planning to homeschool when my kids get to that age, I picked up this book because I have NO IDEA where to begin. Each chapter gives you a new idea about how others homeschool, and reinforces there is no 'right' way to do it, as long as it meets you and your child(ren)s needs. Very honest stories, lots of original ideas, and the back has lots of resources on curriculum and websites that the author has tried, or her homeschooling friends have tried, and they approve. I read it in a day - very easy read. I think I will use this book in the future when I might be having one of those seasons where I am doubting myself or feel I have stagnated. I really enjoyed this book.
