The Ultimate Guide to Homeschooling

TOS Crew Review

Product: Book – The Ultimate Guide to Homeschooling by Debra Bell

Publisher: Apologia

Price: $20.00

This is an enormous book with more than 500 pages. It has a nice set up and is easy to read. The print is large; there are lots of helpful tips in sidebars, and you’ll find a nice list of resources in the back.

There are 10 sections and 34 chapters. Debra talks about: Choosing a Curriculum, Organizing and Planning, Preventing Burnout, What to teach, Homeschooling Teens, Computers, Creative Solutions, Measuring your Success and much more.

When I first started reading this, I was happy to see Debra explain that no homeschooler has it all together. We are all normal families doing our best to educate our children. There is no such thing as a super-homeschooler. But then she went on to describe her children’s accomplishments. They have all been to college. Three of her four children have traveled the world. I was a bit overwhelmed by her success. Not every student needs to have these experiences. Readers should have their own goals and vision in place before reading this book.

This is certainly a great resource and packed with plenty of ideas. I would recommend it to veteran homeschoolers who are already comfortable homeschooling. Mothers who are new to teaching their own children, might find this book overwhelming.
