This book had many helpful websites and other literature to research. Not a necessary book but helpful. I think it would be most helpful to a family with many different ages of children to help keep the parents on track for each agegrade. Read full review

User Review  - gmarias - Overstock.com

I wish I had this book 3 years ago when I first started homeschooling. This book will tell you what your child should be learning at each grade level. It also has recommendations for web sites and curriculum. Of all the books I have purchased for homeschooling this is the best! Read full review
