Homeschooling: The Early Years

Homeschooling: The Early Years : Your Complete Guide to Successfully Homeschooling the 3- to 8- Year-Old Child

Discover the Rewards of Homeschooling Your Young Child
Young children are full of curiosity, imagination, and a sense of wonder. They're willing to try new things and possess a natural joy of discovery. Yet in a traditional school, these natural behavior traits are too often squelched. That's why more and more parents just like you are choosing to teach their children at home during these critical years--the years that lay the foundation for developing learning skills that last a lifetime. Inside, respected homeschooling author Linda Dobson shows you how homeschooling can work for you and your young child. You'll discover how to:
-Tailor homeschooling to fit your family's unique needs
-Know when your child is ready to learn to read
-Teach your child arithmetic without fear--even if you're math-challenged
-Give your child unlimited learning on a limited budget
-And much more!
"Brings dazzling clarity to the otherwise nerve-wracking confusion of early learning--and the adventure of becoming fully human. Highly recommended."--John Taylor Gatto, former New York State Teacher of the Year and author of Dumbing Us Down
"Provides a much-needed introduction to living and learning with young children. Open the book to any page and you'll find inspiring anecdotes and approaches to learning that leave the reader thinking, 'That just makes so much sense!' Highly recommended for anyone who lives, works, or plays with young children."--Helen Hegener, managing editor of Home Education Magazine
"An information-packed delight; I only wish it had been around when our three boys were three to eight years old."--Rebecca Rupp, author of The Complete Home Learning Sourcebook
"This book brings together the experience and wisdom of a great variety of homeschooling families--tied together with warm encouragement and wonderful simplification of processes that can seem so mysterious and daunting to the beginner. A very solid resource!"--Lillian Jones, homeschooling activist, writer, and reviewer
