My grandchildren are now home schooled. I bought this book for my daughter and son-in-law. It will give the family the opportunity to explore some valuable home school resources and ideas. I believe those resources and ideas will help the children learn in a way that will allow them to prosper in the home school environment.
I have also given this book to others who are considering home schooling. Books like this can make a real difference: they simplify the home school process. I recommend this book to anyone who is currently home schooling, and to those who are considering home schooling. I believe it is a is a valuable tool and will be an inspiration to all who read it. I think anyone who reads this book will see that teaching is about giving children the opportunity to love learning. It is about helping children discover the value of learning. The book contains many ideas and valuable resources that will assist teachers and help children prosper. In addition, there are many personal comments and stories which convey first hand experiences of home schooled children. In my opinion, it's a very good book and a wonderful resource.
Plenty of ideas/resources given in the book. The book gets a little "woo woo" in a few places, but I liked it.
