Reviews - What do customers think about Homeschooler's Book of Lists, The: More than 250 Lists, Charts, and Facts to Make Planning Easier and Faster?
Lots of information - hard to locate in the resource Dec 3, 2009
I bought this book as a resource for my middle school son and, as stated by the other reviewers, it is loaded with good information that it helpful to students and parents. However... it has NO INDEX. It's comparable to a world almanac with a 1 page table of contents and no index. Yes - it does have an accompanying CD for easy printing but, again, the access points are so limited that the usefulness of this resource is also quite limited. I'll be sending mine back.
Awesome book for everyone Oct 15, 2009
I agree with all of the 4 or 5 star reviews about this book. I too, first got it from the library. I liked it so much that I purchased it on this site. My kids, age 7, age 13, and age 16, all love it. I find it very interesting and fun to read! I too recommend it for both homeschoolers and non-homeschoolers. It's a book everyone can enjoy and learn a lot from!
I love this book! Aug 17, 2009
I first found this book through our local library system. After checking it out from the library, I looked through it and decided that this book was worthy of purchase! One of my favorite things about the book is the companion CD which includes every list from the book - ready to print out! I expect that we'll print out certain pages & use the printout to easily research various topics on the internet or at the library. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who homeschools but also to parents with kids in public school.
well worth the money Feb 2, 2009
This is a very affordable & interesting reference book for every home, not just homeschooling families. It's got a lot of info packed tight. I like Sonya Haskins' style, very concise.
Just fun and educational Oct 4, 2008
This is a great resource. I would put forth that it is too bad it is titled for Homeschoolers because it would be a great resource for any school or student.
The lists are just amazing. IT is fun to just sit and read through this book. It is also educational to just sit and thumb through this book. IT is a great place to start for reports, history lessons and more.
