The Big Book of Homeschool Ideas: 54 Mommas (and Me) Share Their Homeschooling Expertise

The Big Book of Homeschool Ideas: 55 Homeschooling Mommas share their expertise in 103 different areas of homeschooling. {The Unlikely Homeschool}

Alright, y'all, I'm not gonna lie. I've read a lot of homeschooling books.  A.LOT.  And while they were all very well-written and while I gleaned much from most of them, they each were penned by ONE author with ONE perspective and ONE homeschooling approach making it difficult to see the large spectrum of homeschooling possibilities.
(This post contains affiliate links.)

When I was first starting out, I read a few Homeschooling 101 books.  Later, I desperately needed the Help!-I'm-homeschooling-and-I-just-had-a-baby type.  Then, I started adding those harder-to-find niche' type books that dealt with homeschooling boys or homeschooling on a tight budget.  In this current season of homeschooling, I appreciate those books that offer practical tips for teaching specific subjects...the ones I'm not always the most comfortable tackling {ahem!}.  

While I COULD continue to add book after book to my collection...seeking to fill all the gaps and cover all the bases, I'd much prefer to have ONE go-to resource that spans a multitude of ages and stages of homeschooling.  One that will grow with the needs of my homeschool.  

I'm so proud to be able to say that I've not only found a book that meets that lofty goal, but I helped write it!

  2. After reading through the table of contents, I bought this book this morning and I am enjoying it! I am currently reading the "creative writing" topic and I think I need to get a pen and paper out and take some notes. Great ideas!

    1. Yeah! I'm so glad. Thanks for the review. Other mommas will find this helpful.

  3. Will this book ever be available in a hardback/paperback option? Thank you!

    1. At this point, there are no plans for that. But, I will pass this suggestion on to the editor.
