    So, you just decided to start homeschooling at the beginning of the school year. Homeschooling is very confusing at first, and comes with quite a bit of stress; including all the legal issues, grades, and most importantly of all, curriculum! Homeschooling isn’t just an educational choice either, it’s a family and lifestyle choice. Making time for school despite busy family life also becomes a problem, as education somewhat takes top-priority. Suddenly Homeschooling takes away all of this stress, and includes every aspect of life you need to know about as you start homeschooling; from learning homeschool laws and becoming legal, to working meal planning into your homeschool, to creating chore charts and trying to keep your sanity. It literally covers everything in a concise manner, yet the book isn’t 500 pages long.

    Each day of this two-week plan requires your full attention, and goes through everything you need to begin homeschooling, with days 13 and 14 being your two first days of homeschooling. After this time, I can guarantee you’ll be running a fully functioning homeschool, and then adjust your plans as needed. Like all things homeschool, one of the things I really liked was how the author stressed flexibility. Meal planning doesn’t work for my family, but it does work for a lot of families. Some families prefer classical homeschooling, others prefer a vibrant Charlotte Mason style (more on that in the book) approach to homeschooling. One of the biggest fears new homeschooler’s face is “doing it right.” In truth, there is no wrong or right way to homeschool, and I feel Marie-Claire explained this well and provided a variety of options for new homeschoolers,. Sometimes bloggers (me included!) have a way of under-explaining, forgetting some newbies are unsure of the terms we use. Marie-Claire explains fancy homeschool words, making this easy to understand for newbies.

    One thing, this book is for grade K-8, not high school. :) Although similar, homeschooling high school would require a whole other book. :)

    I would definitely recommend this book though – save your sanity and enjoy your homeschool!
