Review

"If you're a parent who has decided to educate your children yourself, this book is the first you should buy." -- Washington Times "An excellent resource for any family with a desire to incorporate a classical education in their home, whether as a curriculum or as a reference." -- Educational Freedom Press "[Jessie Wise and Susan Wise Bauer] are thorough and pragmatic, offering a detailed curriculum for kindergarten through grade 12, as well as opinions on everything from Latin (an indispensable language) to the Internet ('a mixed blessing')." -- The New Yorker "An A for Home Schooling...a remarkable compendium of information designed to help home-schooling parents give their children a traditional liberal education." -- City Journal "This book would be entertaining simply as the story of how Jessie, then a schoolteacher, decided to teach Susan, who now teaches literature at the College of William and Mary, at home-pulling her and brother Bob out of school in 1973 when home-schooling did not have social acceptance and explicit legal sanction. But it's so much more than a good yarn. It's a mind-stretching tome." -- Robert Holland - Richmond Times Dispatch "This book has caused a revolution within the homeschool community." -- The Old Schoolhouse "Homeschooling parents on a mission to find the ultimate resource-or parents of traditionally-schooled children interested in an excellent supplement-are all well advised to peruse the pages of Wise and Wise Bauer's classy guide to classical education at home." -- Boox Review "An invaluable road map." -- Daily Democrat
