I purchased this book from com after reading many good reviews about it and its contents After reading I'm left with these two main thoughts as an editor Linda Dobson has done a great job collecting and compiling many many ideas projects and games from homeschooling parents across the Western hemisphere As a writer I wasn't as impressed with what she had to sayTo be upfront about this however I should say that after doing much research about different homeschooling methods and philosophies I am identifying myself with those using a classical curriculum which by nature is structured and parent led Dobson is firm in her belief that children should be educated rather than schooled and that the home education process should focus on the child's desires to learn and explore rather than having parents determine what to study at any given time or any given order I don't know that she calls herself an unschooler but her own beliefs are far enough of a departure from that of a classical homeschooler to have me disagree with some of her statementsDiffering philosophies aside this book is a wealth of information of supplementary activities for parents homeschoolers or otherwise to do with their children ages 3 12 to help augment the learning process She has done a wonderful job organizing the information into chapters based on the subject being worked on ie math letter recognition spelling reading science history physical activities Although the book is aimed toward a homeschooling audience I found that many of the activities listed could easily be incorporated into everyday family life in a way that the kids aren't even aware that they're practicing academic skillsThis isn't really a read cover to cover book though I did do so when it first arrived just so I could become familiar with its contents Rather it is simple to find the chapter for which you'd like to find an activity and put it to work I can see myself referring to this book for many years to come whether I homsechool my kids for just one year or their entire pre college academic careers
