Apologia is know in the homeschooling community as a Christian publisher creating curriculum. However they are branching out and publishing resource books as well. The Ultimate Guide to Homeschooling is one of these books. It has been updated from older editions and is better then ever.
The Ultimate Guide to Homeschooling is true to its name! There is so much information included in this book that any homeschooler should be able to find an answer to his/her question in this book. There are topics on choosing curriculum, preventing burnout, using the internet, and TONS more!
This is a great homeschool resource for newbies as well as those of us who have been homeschooling for years. The information included in this book is worthwhile and helpful no matter what stage you are in homeschooling your children.
It is Christian based and does include the authors opinions that may not correlate with yours, but as with any homeschooling guide book you pick and choose what works for you.
I wish I would have had an up to date resource to help me guide my homeschooling experiences in the beginning (nearly 10 years ago!) Debra Bell gives a step by step guide to help the newbies to start their journey off on a good foot!
For a list price of $ 20.00 it is well worth the expense!!
