This book did not have everything I was hoping for but it did have some interesting info. It's worth reading. I didn't mind the Christian theme. I'm not very religious but have no problem with religion, he'll be exposed to far worse ideologies in public school. I wanted something that would help me relate to how my son learns. His intelligence comes from his father and grandfathers. I'm not an idiot but I memorize where he actually comprehends. This book is a good start to understanding gifted kids and education options, not an all in one book though.

Did Buford Jr. talk at 9-months old? Is little Sally teaching herself to read at 4-years-old? Is your child a perfectionist? Has he created a new foreign language? Does she have an early interest in morals and life? Congratulations! Your child is likely gifted in some area. If you have a gifted child in your homeschool, this 152-page softcover might be able to replace your aspirin bottle. Veteran teacher-moms Janice Baker, Kathleen Julicher, and Maggie Hogan teamed up for Gifted Children at Home: A Practical Guide for Homeschooling Families in order to answer the myriad of questions parents of gifted children often ask. This practical "how-to" book charts some ups-and-downs you may experience along the way as you raise your special child or children.

The way I'd describe this book?
Outdated, contains some good ideas, but it is incomplete.

I read the preview of this book online at Bright Ideas Press website. It resonated with the talk I've written to give at a small conference this year. I wanted a book I could recommend to Christian parents homeschooling children who are gifted intellectually. At first, I hoped this book would be the right one, but as I read through the book--it became clear that I wouldn't recommend it. The authors try to be unbiased in this book and simply try and give information. I think they do a good job of that on the whole.

There is some good advice about how to choose curriculum, activities, etc. But, there's lots of holes. For example, they give a listing of subjects that should be taught, but writing isn't even listed for second grade. The arts aren't included, yet geography is. Composition isn't recommended until age 9 or 10. I don't think that's wise. The list is too general to be helpful. Health is required in the state we live in for grades K-8 and so is art. It is true that many gifted kids are able to pick up on things when they're older even if they miss them growing up, but wouldn't it be better to have a well rounded curriculum that scaffolds a student's learning and helps them think more deeply (along the lines of Bloom's Taxonomy).

Instead of this book, I'd recommend Homeschooling Your Gifted Child: Language Arts for the Middle School Years, ISBN# 1576854302 This book has a much better discussion of testing your child--and whether or not it is wise to do so. The other topics are also better covered even though this is specifically a book for middle school and homeschooling.

I'm going to keep looking for a book on teaching gifted children written for Christians who are homeschooling that I feel comfortable recommending...

Wish I would have had this at the beginning of our journey through giftedness. There have been many ups and downs during our process, and this book would have guided us to many conclusions that we eventually came to on our own. With that being said, this book will be a valuable resource as we enter the junior high and high school years. There are many ideas given on accelerated learning that could fit a variety of families' needs. The author's perspective is Christian, but their insight could be used by anyone schooling a gifted child at home.

I bought this book hoping for help with homeschooling a gifted child. What I got is tables that are incorrect, a HUGE amount of religious information and a HUGE forcing of the Christian religion onto homeschooling families. This book is not advertised as a Christian homeschooling book, but as a book for homeschooling gifted children. It is filled with Bible options, spirituality and religious dogma making it rather closed minded in the arena of homeschooling. I will be returning the book. I found it highly uninformative, with outdated, and incorrect, statistical information and little to no real content. The constant religious aspect was offensive. Beware!

I purchased this book when I began homeschooling my 2 gifted sons (6 & 8) The book is full of information, not only for curriculum but for activities, contests and other considerations as well. A great resource.
