Reviews - What do customers think about Catholic Education: Homeward Bound : A Useful Guide to Catholic Home Schooling?
Excellent read! Feb 16, 2005
This is an wonderful, well-written, informative book. It is a superb resource and it answers all questions of potential homeschoolers. Kimberly Hahn and Mary Hassen do a great job of not only emphasizing the importance of educating our children, but also how to incorporate our faith into educating our children.
Problematic Oct 6, 2002
While this book is an easy to read guide to homeschooling, there are problems with its "Catholicity". Kimberly Hahn has recommended some sources which are Protestant -produced and anti-Catholic. There is an underlying tone of disapproval of traditional Catholic sources such as the baltimore Catechism which most homeschooling Catholic parents I know prefer to use. Just beware. Why two "catholic" authors have chosen to do this only points to the fact that there are deep divisions in the Catholic hoemschooling movement. These two ladies see themselves as Catholic home educator leaders but they do not represent all.
Homeschooling Made Simple Aug 22, 2002
Today there are so many books available on the market on how to homeschool your child. Many promote a certain curriculum, others just leave you confused and scratching your head.I love the way Hasson and Hahn keep it simple! You are able to glean from their experience, their triumphs and failures. It is written by "the experts" the homeschooling moms themselves.They are real/relevant in their approach to homeschooling. This book is directed towards people of the Catholic faith, however as I Christian I found it to be one of the best books on the market.
A resource that I keep learning from Mar 6, 2000
Let me add one more thing to what so many others have already said. Our support group purchased two copies of "Catholic Education: Homeward Bound" when it first came out. Now, after my second reading, I can say that I got much more out of it this time than before. Maybe it's because I have more experience, whatever, I realize what a valuable resource this book is, one that I keep learning from.
But I agree with the suggestion made by another reviewer who suggested that the authors should think about adding a brief update to the end, so we might find out more about what other new resources have come out in the last few years.
It made my wife a believer Feb 29, 2000
This book is outstanding. My two sisters have been home-schooling their kids for the last five years, but my wife didn't think it was possible for her to consider it. My older sister told me to get her this book. So I did. After reading it last summer, she got the materials together to begin teaching our oldest daughter in September. Here it is, six months later, and my wife says it is the best choice she's ever made. Thank you Mrs. Hahn and Mrs Hasson.
