Quick! Grab this book, sit down and glean some easy ideas to Simplify your busy homeschool day. It's short and sweet, but packed with inspiration and motivation. I was struggling from feeling over-whelmed and frustrated from my own self-inflicted day. I honestly felt, as I was reading this book, that Tamara was personally, sitting down with me, sharing her most treasured tidbits to make my day easier. I was immediately motivated to put these time-savers into place, especially once I realized how many chaotic time-zapping moments I had allowed to interfere with our day. She shares fabulous ideas to inspire and motivate you AND your children. We all know that motivated and happy children tend to transition through the day quicker than those who are unmotivated and frustrated. She also gives a personal glimpse of her own life, as she shares the importance of taking a little "me" time. With all those minutes you save, you are bound to find time to be reacquainted with yourself. GET THIS BOOK...YOU'RE WORTH IT! THANK YOU TAMARA CHILVER!!!!

this was an awesome book. I loved the idea of taping the money to the back of the book to inspire my young reader to read. believe me, it worked. just three days and she is almost finished with the first book that we introduced. yeah!! great idea!!
Thank you again for such a refreshing read.

I felt so validated reading this book! "Fancy" homeschooling just doesn't work for us and I've done some extreme simplifying, but I always feel like I'm just taking the easy way out compared to so many of my homeschooling friends. Tamara covered most of the things we've done or considered and explained why it works better that way anyways (for many families)...SO encouraging!! She also offers many creative ideas to incorporate into your homeschool days. A great, quick read!

This lady is super smart. I am a new homeschooling mother of two young, YOUNG kids and there are tons of resources out there. It is super overwhelming. I got her kindle book free from a special promotion and now I will track down and buy everything else she has done. She is great at expressing ideas in a simple clear way I really appreciate. I rarely review things, but I wanted to take the time for this, because it is worth it. Lots of USEFUL tips I will use for years to come. Thank You Tamara. Bravo!

I thought this book was going to offer ideas about simplifying and shortening my homeschool day. It didn't do that. She talked about having the kids get plenty of sleep, eating healthy, drinking water, going outside etc. Then she talked ALOT about tutoring. I guess getting a tutor could save some time... then she talked about finding your own identity as a mother by praying over psalms. Definitely not what I was expecting and not helpful at all!

More than the topic of simplifying your homeschool day, this book has effective ideas to enhance the delivery of education to your children.

Tamara makes clear that quality is more important than quantity. Ideas such as combining penmanship and even typing, simultaneously with other subjects instead of isolating them makes perfect sense.

Another excellent idea is having your children perform a chapter review first, and focusing education on where it needs to be focused.

I am the author of The Fiscal Cliff Cookbook - Eat Reasonably Well During The Apocalypse - With Social Commentary Cliff Notes, I wholeheartedly believe in the importance of the highest quality education at home if at all possible, and found this book to be a gateway to making that happen.

This is a quick read, but packed with info. This veteran homeschooler found some new ideas, and a solution or two I really needed. I read it 3 times!

This was such an easy read. I appreciate all of the practical advice included for each section. I especially enjoyed the last section on making time for yourself. After struggling with burnout for a few months, it was confirmation that refocusing some on myself was not selfish, but necessary and healthy for me and my family! Thank you for your honesty.
