Publisher's Description

Drawing from his own childhood experiences, Jonathan Bean takes the autobiographically inspired family he introduced in Building Our House through the special rhythms and routines of a homeschooling day. For young Jonathan and his sisters, Mom is the teacher and a whole lot more, and Dad is the best substitute any kid could want. From math, science, and field trips to recess, show-and-tell, and art, a school day with this intrepid, inventive family will seem both completely familiar and totally unique. Includes a selection of family snapshots and a note from the author.

Editorial Reviews

“This is no ordinary back-to-school tale.” —USA Today

“A great choice for emerging readers, and the strong sense of place, anchoring the school experience to a family's beloved home while also opening it up to embrace the wider world, will resonate with young children just beginning to navigate the home/school divide.” —School Library Journal, starred review

“Homeschooling families rejoice! This warm, uplifting, and hilarious book will delight kids who wonder if other families live just like they do. My family laughed, nodded, and smiled all the way through—from the first illustration to the last. Sure to become a classic on homeschoolers' bookshelves all over the world.” —Sarah Mackenzie, Creator, Read-Aloud Revival and author of Teaching from Rest: A Homeschooler's Guide to Unshakable Peace

“Warmhearted . . . Capture[s] the coziness as well as the frenetic pace of the homeschooling day.” —The Horn Book

“The family from Building Our House returns, but this time their son tells readers all about life as a home-schooled kid . . . Home sweet school.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Humorous and informative . . . Bean's scribbly pen-and-ink style is perfectly suited for the liveliness of a home in which the living room is both a place to relax and a classroom, the kitchen is the cafeteria, and the family car is also the school bus.” —Publishers Weekly
