They explain how they teach, what they use, how they chose their books, how the school day runs, how mom handles it all, and how to get the kids independently learning. They give all the details and nitty gritty you would ask a friend, down to the different schedules over more than ten years of homeschooling.
If you are interested in educationese, idealism, abstract wrangling over methodologies, or in depth explanations of the arts of learning and teaching, this book is not for you.
If you want to figure out a practical way to give your children a practical education that will honor God, and the state, and prepare them for whatever they need to know, this book may be for you.
It is so worth reading. I wpiluld recommend it to any homeschooler.
The Maxwells are almost painfully honest - you will not be bored reading this book. They admit what they think they did wrong, and are generous enough to share this information with us, so that we can learn from their perceived mistakes. They even let their grown kids critique their schooling and give word-for-word quotes of their opinions. Now, that's very brave, in my opinion. Courageous! Humble!
They have good ideas, they explain in detail why they do what they do (after trial and errors) and what works for them. This is a great book to read if just starting, or even pretty far on your way. Don't let the dated cover of this book, and somewhat boring "look" keep you from getting this book. Like they say, "Don't judge a book by its cover!" (I have to admit, the cover is what took me so long to finally order it)
