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

That being said, Overall I found this book pretty good. I wouldn't consider it a essential homeschooling book to have to read. But, I do consider it a nice over all read, relaxed, conversational style writing, as if she is having a conversation with the reader rather then talking at the reader, simple language, fast and short read as the entire book including resource pages is only a little over 100 pages. Actual reading pages are less then 100 pages. This book was also published in the late 90's so some of the references and information will be a bit dated, but truth be told a LOT of what she mentioned is still used and well regarded by homeschoolers nearly 2 decades later today!
