I found Ms. Broughton's writing very easy to read and easily understandable. ...chock-full of fantastic information, getting down to the nitty-gritty of homeschooling research and what people really need to know... I would recommend this book for anyone beginning to think about homeschooling or looking for information on how, and where, to start. I really enjoyed the input from current homeschooling families. -DaLynn McCoy for DenSchool.com
I found this book on Amazon and it has been amazing! From page one it calmed my nerves and made the whole process easy to wrap my mind around. Our biggest question was discussed within the first few pages! I was immediately re-energized with the original excitement that I had for homeschooling and wanted to tell every mom that I knew how excited I was for our family and how much this book meant to me. -Amber, RaisingAdventurers.blogspot.com

As you can tell, I know Dianna. My family has participated in field trips that she plans for Carolina homeschoolers and beyond. However, in reviewing her book, I was looking at it through the eyes of the new parents that I help daily. On that basis, it comes up a winner! Concise and to the point, yet filled with helpful and encouraging information.
It is organized by questions, which is a great idea. One thing I particularly liked was the descriptions that Dianna collected from a number of homeschool families of all kinds concerning their daily schedules, curriculums and methods. Reading what other families are doing is so helpful to figuring out your own unique path.
If you start with this book and then progress to local resources as Dianna recommends, you will be well on your way to a successful homeschooling journey. I recommend reading it as if Dianna was sitting across your kitchen table and sharing her experiences with you. And before you finish, she will seem like an old friend guiding through this new process.
