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.
