The Big Book of Homeschool Ideas talks about all kinds of children: boys, only children, twins, teenage girls, and perfectionists. There are even chapters about special needs such as giftedness, bipolar disorder, dyslexia, and sensory issues.

We welcome 38 moms who share their expertise on 57 topics. In this book, we once again go beyond the basics of academics and delve into delightful, yet practical topics like dual enrollment and college prep, transcripts, personality and learning styles, ADHD, book clubs, flashcards, STEM, small spaces, and oodles more!
Homeschooling: What to Do When You Want to Quit
Over 250 pages of uplifting, but not sugar coated, practical help for 56 different reasons you might want to quit homeschooling. Written by homeschool moms just like you, this guide addresses nearly every potential frustration point that a homeschooler may face: having toddlers and babies along for the ride; working from home while homeschooling; feeling under-appreciated or inadequate; raising a special needs child; dealing with a family crisis or job loss; living in a chaotic house, and much much more.
How We Teach: the real lives of homeschoolers from classical to unschooling and everything in between
We asked each contributor to pull a homeschool method, a subject, and an age range, and then write about how exactly they teach in their own unique way. You’ll be astonished to see that homeschooling is definitely not one size fits all. If you have ever wondered what a homeschool season looks like in another person’s home, this is the book for you. If you need some help in the creativity department when it comes to math, history, fine arts and more, look no further.
