    I was ready to give up on homeschooling after three years of burn out. This book has inspired me to go on and to see homeschooling in a different light. It has given me the courage to step out of the highly structured curriculum setting and actually teach my kids the way they need to be taught to learn without doubting my capability to do so. I'm excited about school now and loving to see the kids enjoying learning instead of it being a chore!

    This is truly one of the best and most practical books that I have read about homeschooling basics. After homeschooling for several years, I regret that I did not own this book from the start. This book can prevent a lot of frustration for the new homeschool Mom, and if you are just starting out, or struggling with issues in your homeschool, I whole heartedly recommend it. It's a practical collection of how-to's by a vetreran who understands homeschool families.

    The book starts with a short section on reasons for homeschooling, and it is a refreshing and encouraging read. Gayle Graham, the author, advises that we write down our reasons and goals in homeschooling. Scripture is scattered throughout and she directs us back to seeking God's Word for our family. Her writing style is friendly and easy to read. Then Gayle offers her practical, and easily do-able plan for organising your home and school. She takes you step by step through setting goals, making managment notebooks and planning for success. What struck me was the simplicity of her methods! There are reproducible forms in the back of the book, to assist you in setting up your notebook. This is not a cumbersome tool, as I have seen other writers suggest, it is trim and keeps paperwork to a minimum.

    In Section Two, the subjects of Reading and Writing are discussed, and again the tips and suggestions are very practical.

    The final section of the book covers pulling it all together, with the unit study method and also the subject of Math.

    The book is in softcover format. With it's slightly wider than average pages, it lies open easily and has wide blank margins, leaving you lots of space for jotting down your own notes.

    "How to Homeschool" leaves a homeschool Mom feeling refreshed to conquer homeschooling again.

    This was one of the first books I bought 6 years ago when I started my homeschooling adventure. As I start my 6th year and now have 3 children 1st- 6th, I am still returning to this book for insight. I have searched the web for a bigger selection of homeschooling forms, but I have gone back to Gayle's straightforward, simple forms that really work. I am starting with Konos this year, and I think that her unit study planning form is just right for a week. Thank you, Gayle!
