    The book is full of little tid bits to use. A lot of the items are found around the house which is a big help. I think this will be a book I will get ideas from for a good while.

    This book has interesting ideas for extra things to do with home-schoolers. It wasn't as in-depth as I hoped it would be. But, I guess it is a nice addition to the many other home-schooling books I have. :)
