Reviews - What do our customers think?
Yuck!  Feb 18, 2008
I threw away my copy after reading it. If you are looking for a book on homeschooling by a Christian family, this is NOT the book.
What a waste of money.
 
Awesome  Nov 20, 2006
We start homeschooling next year. The Colfaxs' approach was refreshing, and added a lot of insight to what homeschooling can be like without the formal curricula. They used an approach that makes sense, and gives children a freedom to learn and grow that we haven't seen in all the years our oldest child has been in school. Their boys also were able to still be boys without the restrictions that formal schooling places on all children.

They watched their children closely before moving them ahead, and learned to set their egos aside. Working at the childrens' different paces made all the difference. They don't advocate keeping up with the schools, and yet their boys were able to out pace the schools without the formal structure.

It's a great short description similar to the Moore Method without the religious undertones. A fantastic guide for anyone who wants the best for developing children with: critical thinking skills, a great self concept, confidence, and close family ties as well as serving the greater community.
 
Excellent book   Feb 26, 2005
I very much enjoyed reading this book. I didn't look at it so much as a how-to book but more of an inspirational book for anyone homeschooling or thinking of homeschooling. The authors don't tell you want to do - they just relate what they did, why they did it, and how it worked.

I loved many of the ideas they presented and we have already put one into practice - the idea of having the children write daily in a journal - or even just draw if they can't write yet. This is a big hit with our six year old who every night writes in her book something special that happened that day. What a fun way to learn writing, spelling and grammar skills and we'll be able to look back in later months and years and see how she has progressed.

Even though this book is dated - most of the information and processes are very relevant to today.
 
Thankfully, not all homeschoolers are pedantic!  Aug 21, 2002
This was the first book about homeschooling I read and all the rest have been disconcerting in comparison.

The Colfaxes present, in matter of fact fasion, how they taught their own. Their motivation for doing so was practical rather than ideological. They don't pretend to tell you how to teach your own children - just how they managed to teach theirs.

The only drawback is that some of the references are out of date - the Colfaxes taught their children in the 70's and 80's. However good sense (I don't say common, because I don't believe it is) will lead interested readers to updated references: Enyclopedias on CD-Rom rather than in book form, for example.

A great book for intelligent parents who supspect that they can teach their child(ren) more effectively than any overworked and underappreciated teacher can.
