Review

Mary Kenyon meets a unique need on the part of anyone giving serious consideration to the prospects of homeschooling. Home Schooling From Scratch: Simple Living - Super Learning offers information and encouragement for home school families who have limited financial resources and covers deciding what and how to teach at home, books and supplies, where to find support, low cost educational activities, organizing to economize, a home-based business, many innovative, practical ways to save money, and (perhaps most importantly) where to get what you need from a large list of resources. Home Schooling From Scratch is "must" reading for everyone on a tight budget and wanting to do a successful job of educating and preparing their children for their eventual adult responsibilities. Gazelle Publications is also the publisher of The Home School Manual ($24. 95) which is also available in a "Windows" computer version ($16). -- Midwest Book Review

This book ". . . explains how both experienced and beginning homeschoolers can save a fortune on educational materials." -- Money Matters

By C. Buzek on October 24, 1998
Format: Paperback
As a home education consultant with 9 years personal homeschooling experience, this book is a great resource and addition to your home library. Mary explains the "how-to's" about homeschooling from A-Z. Every topic is covered from locating textbooks to organization and a great chapter about "Where to find what you need!" I'd highly recommend this book for the beginner and the veteran. I wish I had had this book when I was homeschooling my own children.

By A Customer on April 10, 2001
Format: Paperback
As a mother looking for starting-out info about homeschooling, I thought "Home Schooling from Scratch" would be a good place to start. What I found, instead, is a book dealing specifically with the issue of how homeschooling families can live frugally. It's probably a good book if that's what you're looking for, but the title did not give me any clue that this is what it's about.

This book as a ton of awesome, free ideas for home schooling. I checked it out of the library, and knew that I wanted my own copy to refer back to.
