Considering Homeschooling



Are you considering homeschooling but aren't sure you are ready to make that leap? When we were thinking about homeschooling I read many books. There were three books that greatly shaped the way we homeschool, but only one that convinced me to do it. Here are my favorite homeschooling books.

Not sure if you want to homeschool? This is a great book!
Family Matters: Why Homeschooling Makes Sense by Guterson, David


You know you want to homeschool, but aren’t sure what curriculum to purchase?
100 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculum: Choosing the Right Curriculum and Approach for Your Child's Learning Style by Cathy Duffy


You want to Homeschool using the Charlotte Mason Method. This is a great book to get you started.
Charlotte Mason Companion: Personal Reflections on the Gentle Art of Learning by Karen Andreola



Five bloggers are writing for the Homeschool Help series. If you're thinking about homeschooling be sure to check out their reading recommendations too.

With so many homeschooling books available, Chareen at Every Bed of Roses recommends a few that have withstood the test of time.

Bernadette at Barefoot Hippie Girl has found some books to help along the homeschooling journey.

Find out what Savannah at Hammock Tracks considers the Holy Trinity of homeschooling books.

Hwee at The Tiger Chronicle has some recommendations for parents beginning to homeschool at different stages of their children's lives.

Homeschooling has worked very well for our family. The kids are happy, challenged, and best friends. It's a lot of work and I would do it over again in a heartbeat.
