Review: The Ultimate Guide to Homeschooling

User Review  - Jodi - Goodreads

The most practical down-to-earth book I've read about homeschooling thus far. She doesn't glamorize it or think everyone should do it. It was overwhelming at times, but I think it is because I am just beginning my homeschooling journey. I might have to buy this one as a resource. Read full review
