    If it were 1996 I would have given the book 5 stars. With all the new curriculum out, I don't know that the choices mentioned in this book are still the best ones out there. Still, this is an excellent book for the first time Catholic Homeschooler in that it gives a realistic idea of how 2 families homeschool their children.

    I hate to give such a low rating to a book by Kimberly Hahn, but I did not enjoy this book. I think it was poorly titled, because only about 1/3 of it is actually useful advice for homeschooling. And in that third there are some good things, including the great bibliography in the back. But the other two-thirds of the book are about why you should homeschool (I wanted to read a book about how to homeschool, not why to) and some basics about the Catholic faith (not sure why that was in there.

I already know I need to teach the faith to my kids, what I was after were helpful resources on how to do that).

    Sometimes Kimberly Hahn is hard for me to live up to, but I love her just the same. I finished the book with a sense that I could handle homeschooling but I knew I'd need the perspective of other resources as well.

    This is another slightly out-dated book on Catholic homeschooling, but I enjoyed it a lot more than Mary Kay Clark's book, Catholic Homeschooling. The chapters were divided up nicely into major areas of discussion, especially for those contemplating homeschooling. Easy to jump around the topic or question that is weighing on you. The resource list in the back of the book is very out-dated by today's standards.

    This is an excellent overview of the philosophical and theological foundations of Catholic homeschooling. The resources mentioned are out of date, since the book is almost 20 years old. It would be great if the authors, whose kids have all graduated now, could do an update on the book.

    A bit outdated now, but still encouraging.
