So You're Thinking About Homeschooling: Fifteen Families Show How You Can Do It - by Lisa Whelchel - this is one of my absolute favorites. I love how Lisa writes, I felt like I was having coffee with a friend and chatting about homeschool. She helps to give you the confidence that us momma sometimes lack.
