Resource Review- So You're Thinking About Homeschooling

Are you thinking about homeschooling? Are you wondering what it looks like? Wondering about how much work it is? The costs involved? This book by Lisa Whelchel is a great place to start.

So You're Thinking About Homeschooling is not a book about curriculum choices or scheduling your day. It's a book that gives a great overview of what it could look like to homeschool your children. Each chapter is designed to give you a glimpse into the day of one family. You learn why they made this choice and what motivates them to keep at it. You learn about different curriculum options, but not the details of it. You learn about how it can look in a variety of situations. If you think you know what it means to homeschool, this book can help shake up some of those ideas and help you think outside the box.

I love Whelchel's writing style because you really feel like you're walking beside her as you visit different homes. This was my first introduction to her work, and I began reading her other books, as well. All are great reads! She passes along information and, in some cases, Scriptural truths in a manner that makes you feel like you're chatting with your best friend.

Have you read this book? What did you think about it? What's one book you would recommend to someone thinking about homeschooling?
