I also liked her philosophy. She's much less textbook, standards, drill-drill, focused than the typical school these days. She advocates learning things more naturally, like grammar largely as part of writing, as opposed to primarily as a separate list of rules, math as part of real life, etc. She very much feels that the typical parent can homeschool, even if they sometimes have to learn along with their children. She's very encouraging int hat way.
However, the subjects are not covered thoroughly. It's something of a hodge-podge of information, one aspect might be covered very thoroughly and another glanced over. The organization could use some improvement. These are the things that result in my giving it a 4-star rating instead of 5 stars.
Still, I would recommend this book to Christian homeschooling parents. There are frequent passing references to Christianity, the Bible, negatives about evolution, etc, which may disturb non-Christians. In most of the book, it's easily passed over, but it's more thoroughly covered in the sections on science and the Bible (duh!). Still, there is a lot of value even for those not interested in the spiritual content.
