Book Review: Teaching in Your Tiara....

I am currently reading "Teaching in Your Tiara: A Homeschool Book for the Rest of Us". This book was written by Rebecca Frech, and it peaked my interest from the start.

What they say about the book: 

"One of the keys to being happy while homeschooling is to do it in a way that is natural for you - if you are a book girl, then pack your day full of literature, if you're crafty, then get out the glue sticks and glitter, and if your brain works better when it's sparkly... then, by golly, stick a tiara on your head and go teach something!" Do you wish that you had the chance to sit down with a seasoned homeschooling veteran over a cup of tea and ask every question that comes to mind? Mother of seven and twelve year homeschooling veteran Rebecca Frech is the common-sense voice of experience and reassurance that you’ve been hoping to find. Teaching in Your Tiara is a soup-to-nuts homeschooling book that walks you through the first years – deciding that home education is right for your family, choosing the right curriculum, understanding learning styles, not raising socially awkward kids, maintaining your own identity, and more. Whether you’re the parent who’s already committed to homeschooling or you’re just dipping your toe into the pool of consideration, this book is for you! Rebecca’s logic, honesty, and humor will leave you both amused and well-informed about the realities of homeschooling and what it could mean for your family.

What I say about the book:

Well, I haven't finished the book yet, however I find it very entertaining as well as informative. This is a book that is great for families beginning to homeschool as well as veterans like myself. We all can use some advice and encouragement on this journey, and this book will give you that. The chapters offer information on homeschool basics, as well as homeschooling to college. It truly has everything! I have the Kindle version of this book, but I am going to make it a part of my homeschooling reference library. Yes, I would recommend this book. So far, this book gets 4 out of 5 stars from me (only because the beginning is a little slow).
