This week will be fun...Debi Pearl and I want to give away our Big Book of Homeschooling to 10 different winners!!!!
The Big Book of Homeschooling is the most entertaining, imaginative and helpful resource for homeschooling; bar none! It is full of creative ideas in teaching every subject you will need to cover to round out your child’s education. It is a resource so fun that your children will want you to read the book out loud so they can decide on which ideas they will want to incorporate into their daily lives.
To simplify your search for good reading material and free curriculums there are separate book lists for appropriate reading levels, and a list of websites that offer great curriculums. You will have at your fingertips a resource of where to find fun, wholesome homeschool freebies, book reviews, learning and teaching websites, and many other outstanding resources.
And take note: This is not the wisdom from just one homeschooling mom; it is the combined wisdom of many triumphant homeschooling moms who have grown very successful kids to prove their ideas worked.
What makes this book so different and interesting is: Discovering the paths of the hows, whys and wherefores from a wide variety of pioneer homeschooling moms. Their fascinating journey is exciting as well as instructive. You will be learning from the combined wisdom and genius of some of America’s greatest moms that succeeded in homeschooling their children. You will glean wisdom from them as you discover the different ways of teaching their children and how they struck gold in their efforts.
Additionally, the book is full of fresh, clean child friendly art that demonstrates the ideas being presented. Your family will have fun as you pour over each picture trying to duplicate the illustrations.
This book was written to make your task as an educator easier, and to encourage and challenge your children’s minds. The Big Book of Homeschooling was written for both the educator and the one who is being educated to learn how to enjoy the process of gaining a wonderful education. It is homeschooling at its finest.

*****A wonderful combination of creative and commonsense - you will love it!

This is another masterpiece by Debi Pearl. Her ideas and writing style are clear, concise, practical, and creative. "Practical" and "creative" might not seem to go together, but I believe that anything she writes about embodies both ideas. The wonderful outcome is that everything she suggests is attainable by you and me and everyone in between. This book goes through each "school" subject - as well as some extra-curriculars - and provides effective-yet-fun learning ideas. (I have homeschooled for 13 years and found many refreshing ideas that I've already implemented. They received a very positive response from my five children as well.) Each chapter also includes internet resources which are top-notch. The graphics in each chapter are beautiful and pertinent and are effective at holding the interest of someone like me who grew up watching WAY too much t.v. ;D
For me, everything I have read by Debi Pearl has been a blessing and this book is no exception. This book will be especially helpful for keeping school "fun" while you effectively educate your children. Even if you don't homeschool, you might find this book helpful in educating your children about particular subjects.
Whether you are new to homeschooling or a veteran, this book will be most helpful. If there is anyone out there who has a friend or family member who is struggling with keeping their homeschooling experience joyful or who has a friend or family member about to embark upon homeschooling, please consider this resource for them. I think it will truly help and bless them.
Thank you, Debi, for writing this book!
