Bridges the gap between homeschooling and unschooling!  Jan 12, 2007
I love this book so much!!! I refer to it quite often and use alot of the ideas in it. When I first started homeschooling my son everyone made me feel like I was doing something wrong. But It was the best decision I think I ever made. And the Moores really validate the many feelings homeschool parents have.
A Wonderful Book!!  Apr 7, 2005
This is the very first book I read after I first had thoughts of homeschooling our children. I fell in love with the Moore's! They seem like the sweetest older couple you would ever want to meet. They show you their method (which as many reviewers have already pointed out is no formal education until 10-12 years of age) and tell you how to do it. I came away from reading this book encouraged, and I ordered all the rest of their books, too! They have written several; another very good one is "Home Grown Kids". I'm not sure if it's in print anymore - I bought it used. Other people have said they don't agree with some of the methods (such as waiting)and I must admit that it is hard to do. Today's society makes it almost impossible to permit your child to not be able to read when he/she is 10-11!! The thing is, though, Dorothy Moore was a successful remedial reading teacher - she knows what she is talking about when it comes to teaching reading! Two things they mention must go hand in hand with homeschooling is service to others and manual labor. They believe it is healthy for a child to have work with his heart and hands as well as his mind. I love that idea - too many adults (let alone children) only think of themselves. This book (and others they've authored) mentions different ways to make these two things happen.
In conclusion, there are some things in this book that I would love to follow through on, but as I stated earlier, are almost impossible to do because of societal constraints, such as waiting until between 10-12 to start formal schooling. I do plan on incorporating many of their ideas into my homeschool. Some reviewers have called the authors "arrogant". I would not say that - I felt like they were giving "grandmotherly" advice I could choose to use or not.
borrow it if you can  Mar 11, 2004
This book will help you to relax about homeschooling if you're stressing about it, but other than that, i was pretty dissapointed.

If i could do it again, I'd try to borrow it from someone rather than spending money on it. In fact, I'm going to donate my copy to my local library.

The Moores promote their way of homeschooling as the best way and encourage you to buy their 'Manual' to learn how. If you really want to know about their method, skip this book and get their manual.

Do keep in mind that they were Seventh-Day Adventist, so if you're going to order from their catalog, just know that there are Adventist books in their Bible section.

Info based on stereotypical information - not research  Nov 23, 2003
For example, William Sidis is described as 'burned out', or unbalanced. At the time of his death - his friends did not think that he was either. He wasn't. He rejected capitalism, for that he is remembered, even in new books - as unbalanced. This author did not do research.
almost burned out homeschool mom from Utah  May 22, 2003
I have been homeschooling for three years now, and I realized awhile ago that I had brought "school home" instead of homeschooling. This book gave me confidence to wait until my children are ready (one daughter is 7 and can read, but not well and she does not enjoy it) to even teach the basics. My son (10 yrs. old) hated to read, but backing off and not pushing him helped a great deal, and now he enjoys reading. This book is an excellent help in avoiding burnout. Homeschooling has become enjoyable again and the atmosphere of our home has changed drastically. Dr. Raymond and Dorothy Moore have much expertise in their field, but they have also experienced much of what they teach. They have a great website
