The homeschooling journey can be scary, no matter how long you’ve been at it or how new you are. To help you get over your fears, you might have thought about reading some good books about homeschooling. Many books are written about homeschooling, and it can be hard to know which ones to start with.
You need to figure out which books will make you feel better, and which books will make you feel even worse. Why did I make this list of the best books written by homeschoolers? Because there are so many great books written by homeschoolers for homeschoolers! Homeschooling moms wrote almost all of these great books, but not all of them. As a homeschool parent, I can help you with this new adventure because I have done it myself. The best ones are shown here. It’s time to pick a book (or two) and get ready for a lot of encouragement.
