I came across this book because the administrator of our local home education support group selected it for the annual January Book Discussion. The main theme of the book is "how to organize your life." The book is not about homeschooling, it just happens to be written by a home educating parent. The author consistently/constantly repeats the same information throughout each chapter within the book. After being lulled to sleep by the rambling dialogue, I decided to place the book in the Goodwill donation box. Instead of reading through this poorly written piece of dribble I would highly recommend reading Emily Barne's book "More Hours in My Day." Emily's book has sustained the test of time for the past twenty five years, so it's a classic when it comes to reading about the "how to's of home management/organization.
Contrary to what the title implies, this is NOT a book about homeschooling. It is, rather, a book about organizing your home written by a woman who, incidentally, has homeschooled her children. What a disappointment to one who trusted that the title described the subject of the book, especially since I would NOT have purchased a book about organizing/housework. This may be a nice book if one wants to know how to organize their closets, but is certainly not about the act or even theory of homeschooling.
This book was a surprise to me. It is more than a scheduling book, more than an inspiration book and more than a planner. It has all this and puts it together with a dash of humor. Instead of telling you step by step how to do something, it teaches you how to set your priorities so that you plan for and implement your most important items. It shares ways to plan for life with the least amount of disruption to school, and vice versa.
