Editorial Reviews

Review

“If you’re a parent who has decided to educate your children yourself, this book is the first you should buy.”
- Washington Times

“An excellent resource for any family with a desire to incorporate a classical education in their home, whether as a curriculum or as a reference.”
- Educational Freedom Press

“[Jessie Wise and Susan Wise Bauer] are thorough and pragmatic, offering a detailed curriculum for kindergarten through grade 12, as well as opinions on everything from Latin (an indispensable language) to the Internet (‘a mixed blessing’).”
- The New Yorker

“An A for Home Schooling…a remarkable compendium of information designed to help home-schooling parents give their children a traditional liberal education.”
- City Journal

“This book would be entertaining simply as the story of how Jessie, then a schoolteacher, decided to teach Susan, who now teaches literature at the College of William and Mary, at home―pulling her and brother Bob out of school in 1973 when home-schooling did not have social acceptance and explicit legal sanction. But it’s so much more than a good yarn. It’s a mind-stretching tome.”
- Robert Holland, Richmond Times Dispatch

“This book has caused a revolution within the homeschool community.”
- The Old Schoolhouse

“Homeschooling parents on a mission to find the ultimate resource―or parents of traditionally-schooled children interested in an excellent supplement―are all well advised to peruse the pages of Wise and Wise Bauer’s classy guide to classical education at home.”
- Boox Review

“An invaluable road map.”
- Daily Democrat
