This book was very easy to read because of the friendly conversational tone. It is definitely meant to be a brief overview for homeschooling, nothing too in depth. Just meant to be an introduction and it did a good job of introducing the newbie homeschooler to many different ways to homeschool, though it definitely had a Christian point of view, so if that turns you off you may want to skip this one. But it was still, in my opinion, worth my time to read it.

This book is a great compilation of reasons and methods of several different families' homeschooling adventures. Very helpful and encouraging, and humorous. It debunks the myth that you must "have twelve children, raise goats, and bake my own bread" in order to be a successful homeschooler.

I liked the way Ms. Whelchel pointed out that all homeschooling families are not all alike and how you don't have to fit the mold. It's important for parents to know that they can homeschool in a variety of situations and circumstances. I had been homeschooling for several years before she wrote the book and ours was one of the families she interviewed via email when she was researching it. We were one of the "On the Job Training Families"; we basically "gym-schooled" for the 7 years we owned our gym.

This is a really nice book by Lisa Whelchel that contains many testimonies about families who've decided to home educate their children. Those families come from all different walks of life, have different reasons for choosing homeschool, and they discuss various methods of home education that works best for their families. It's a great book for those who are simply thinking about homeschooling, or for those who have homeschooled "forever" and would enjoy the encouragement, friendly conversation, and a few laughs!

I loved this book! I was really struggling with the thought that even though I wanted to homeschool, there was no way I could do it. This book showed me ways that I could homeschool, even with my scatterbrained personality. We are now going on our 3rd year of homeschooling... and things are going great. Glad I read the book.

Very informative and gave me some ideas for homeschooling my own child. Very nice range of examples to tell us about. It also explains a bit further concepts that were really strange to me. Such as "unschooling". I may not agree with everything in the book but just reading about the different ways of doing things have broadened my perspective.
