Top Customer Reviews
The book seems intentionally vague--unlike other homeschooling books I've read, the Cards give no reasons for their curriculum choices, no mention of how they structure their school year, no mention of how they incorporate library or social time, no mention of any day to day activities, no mention of how they work within their state's homeschooling laws (or what that law is), no mention of how they assess progress.
The book promises much more than it delivers. For example, the back cover states that the books "answers your questions about" "teaching children at different grade levels" (which was answered in 3 vague paragraphs).
I was expecting a "journey" of the homeschool experience on a personal level with their family, and what I read seemed more like how to give your child a strong Christian background, with little insight on how this family incorporates homeschooling WITH their Christian values. I am guessing that the Cards' approach is to unschool, but then they never addressed that (or any other homeschool theory) either . . .
