I started reading about homeschooling and various educational philosophies when I was in high school. Though now there are a wealth of encouraging, thought-provoking homeschool books, I find that I recommend the same ones over and over. Most of these authors have other excellent books as well, but these are my favorites.
Here’s a quick list of my most recommended homeschool books.
For the Children’s Sake: Foundations of Education for Home and School, Susan Schaeffer Macaulay
Educating the Wholehearted Child, Clay and Sally Clarkson
The 3 R’s: Grades 1-3, Ruth Beechick
You Can Teach Your Child Successfully: Grades 4-8, Ruth Beechick
The Successful Homeschool Family Handbook, Raymond & Dorothy Moore
Well-Trained Mind, Susan Wise Bauer
