I love this book. I want to say that I received this book free from Bethany House and was asked to review the book. Several months back I wrote a review of Exploring Creation With Zoology 2: Swimming Creatures of the 5th Day on the Facebook page of a homeschooling magazine (I can't remember who) and my review was one of the three winners chosen. It was pretty exciting! Anyway, from that I received an email asking if I wanted to review this book. I jumped at the chance for a free book. I love to read so this was going to be a no brainer. A couple of months later I received the book in the mail.
Sonya Haskins addresses everything from the pressure put on homeschool moms to perform perfectly - to co-ops, field trips, chores, dealing with relatives and my favorite- ways to pay for curriculum. On co-ops she gives suggested class ideas and she also provides a list of different types of field trips. Sonya discusses chores in her "Living in a Messy House" chapter. She not only provides very practical ideas about how to keep a relatively organized house while homeschooling, but she spells out age appropriate chore ideas for every age range of your child.
I deal with some not so postive relatives on a semi-regular basis so the brief chapter on dealing with relatives was good for me to read. Lastly, because I am a curriculum junkie I always appreciate money saving tips and creative ideas on how to homeschool for less money.
Overall this is a great book and something I am sure I will refer back to time and again for inspiration when I am feeling like what I do is never enough. Homeschooling for the Rest of Us will make a great addition to your homeschool library.
