    A must-read for all homeschool families. Divided into sections, it’s easy to pick up and read anywhere in the book for the ideas you need. Great reference book!

    Upon first reading this book I had the impression this would be a great book to keep around for later but not for the ages and stages of my homeschooling children now. I was wrong. Thankfully I looked through the index (I usually just start a book and read through instead). I realized that the wisdom I needed for now was being shared farther on in the book. There’s a little of something for every homeschooler. And that advice at the beginning of the book? I’m glad I have it for later.

    Imagine, if you will, sitting down with 38 seasoned homeschool moms and picking their collective brains in an array of 57 varying topics. Well, that in a nutshell sums up The Big Book of Homeschool Ideas-Volume 2, without the pressure of making small talk, grins. Great resource/gift for new homeschoolers and old pro’s alike.

    As a homeschooler of two girls ages 7 & 12, I have found the articles in the Big Book of Homeschool Ideas to be so helpful and timely. As my 7th grader moves toward high school age, several articles have helped me with developing a direction for her next few years as well as to alleviate some concerns I had as a homeschooling mom. The book offers suggestions on how to make learning more fun for your children while still getting them what they need and what you, as a parent, want for them.

    Being new to homeschooling this book is a must-have for me. Everything I could think of is covered and it’s a great resource for all the years to come. Volume 1 is also excellent. I am thankful to have this book as I will refer to it very often for all the wonderful ideas wich are so in depth and categorized and easy to follow.

    As someone who has several years of homeschooling under my belt, I didn’t expect to learn much from this book. What I discovered inside the pages not only guided me but encouraged me and filled my “homeschooling cup.” It made me step back and remember WHY we’re traveling this path we’ve chosen for our family.
    With sections on planning your homeschool, curriculum choices, homeschool networks and record keeping, it’s perfect for new homeschoolers. The advice and options they present are also perfect for seasoned homeschoolers who need a fresh take on their set-up.
    Let’s face it: Homeschooling is HARD. With tips and tricks from moms who get it, this book has proven to be invaluable to us. On hard days, I can pull it out and read a few pages to renew my spirits. Along with the first volume, The Big Book of Homeschool Ideas is what I recommend to anyone who is thinking of homeschooling their children.

    Ages & Stages: Teens & Beyond
    This first section is where we are at! I’ve got a budding teenager on my hands and everythings seems like a moving target these days. We are in flux! From the titles alone, I know I’m in for some great insight and helpful advice to set us on a enjoyable path to adulthood and independence.

    Unique Needs & Homeschool Situations
    Let’s face it, each family is unique. The reasons we homeschool are based around the unique needs of our families and our desire to meet those needs. This section will encourage and inspire you if you are needing some insight into how to embrace homeschooling with your unique family.

    Just like our families are unique, our situations are unique too. Some folks have a very small space to homeschool in; some have several children all at different stages. Some days it feels like we are just running a 3-ring circus!

    We also know that for the most part, none of our kids are at the same academic level in every subject. Some are ahead in some subjects, but behind in others. No one fits into a neat little box, do they? That’s the beauty of homeschool – they don’t have to! The Big Book of Ideas Volume 2, has loads of resources to help your family ebb and flow through this homeschool journey with success and joy.

    I hope you enjoy the Big Book of Homeschool Ideas as much as I do!

    As a relative newcomer to homeschooling (we’ve only done it for about a year,) I appreciate having advice from other homeschooling parents at my fingertips. The Big Book of Homeschool Volume II fits the bill nicely. Because we travel a lot, I opted for the Kindle version and was not disappointed. This new volume is well laid out and easy to use as a reference but reads more like a conversation. I especially enjoyed the section on homeschooling your child with ADHD. I had to chuckle as I read another parent describe her morning and realized it wasn’t only me who had days like that with fidgeting little hands and minds that might rather be dreaming in the clouds.
