Homeschooling with Ease

Homeschooling with Ease: A Parent's Beginner Guide to Simple, Harmonious Home Learning by [Robynn Honeychurch]Title: Homeschooling with Ease

Author: Robynn Honeychurch

Genre: Nonfiction/Education

My Review:

In the last year or so with everything going on more and more families are switching to homeschooling. Whether by being forced into it by the schools closing, or fear of the unknown, so they decided to keep their children home. That makes the timing of Homeschooling with Ease perfect. Homeschooling with Ease is written by Robynn Honeychurch. Robynn has taught children for over 25 years, through tutoring programs, community classes, and working as an online learning consultant. She has supported hundreds of homeschooling parents and students from the ages of 5 to 14. Robynn homeschools her daughter and lives on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada, with her family.

Writing with Ease is a great introductory book about homeschooling. The author briefly addresses a multitude of topics, such as the advantages of homeschooling, styles of homeschooling, the connection between the parent and child, discovering the child’s interest and so much more. The author also included a small list of resources at the end of the book, that she found valuable for homeschooling.

I loved the quotes that were scattered throughout the book. I also loved the positive and encouraging tone of the book. As a veteran homeschool mom (10 years), there are still times you need encouragement and someone telling you that you can indeed do this. I appreciated the author gave a recap at the end of each chapter as well.

There was only one small thing that I did like about the book. It is mainly geared toward those with younger children. Other than that there was nothing else that I disliked about this book.

I would recommend this book to those who are new to homeschooling or have been homeschooling for a short while. I would also recommend this book to homeschooling parents who need some encouragement and motivation to continue homeschooling. This book is a great starting point. I would follow up this book with any of Cathy Duffy's Top Homeschooling books, they will cover the topics covered in this book in greater depth.
