Andrea at What DID We Do All Day? Comments:
“I wish that I had access to John Bowman’s Montessori At Home! during that time. It has everything I loved about those early books (Pitamic, Seldin), PLUS the information I needed to keep going (Gettman) all rolled into one. For many parents, this will be the only resource you need to create a wonderful preschool experience for your child at home.”
Stephanie at Discovery Moments relates her own experiences:“I muddled through, asking a million questions of Montessori teachers and bloggers along the way. I learned so much and really started to feel like I got it. It took a good year of research to learn the basics. Then one day I got an email from John Bowman asking me to review his book Montessori at Home! I read it cover to cover and realized that this was what I had been looking for a year before as I was trying to get things together to teach my daughters. It illustrated the materials that you need to have and those you can make on your own. It has a quick start guide so you can start right away; and it gave a really good idea of how to set everything up in your own home. There were so many pictures (I need to see)! If I had this book first it would have made things simpler (and less expensive). So now it is the first book I recommend to people looking to start doing Montessori at home.”
You can Read!
by Carisa, over 300 pages, value $10
You Can Read is a simple sight word program I developed with younger readers in mind. Children learn to read at different ages and some show the reading readiness signs at much younger ages than others. These children are ready to learn words and reading skills, they just aren’t ready for complex worksheets and activities often available to children who are a bit older when they are learning. I (Carisa) created this program for children who are showing reading readiness signs at a younger age, approximately ages 3-5. Older children can use these printables and activities also, they were just created with a younger reader in mind!

by Sara McGrath, 120 pages, value $4.99
A Practical Handbook on Learning Without School: People who feel drawn to the philosophical principles of unschooling often ask ‘How do you unschool?’ While acknowledging that each family approaches the unschooling lifestyle from a unique standpoint, I offer the details of my family’s experiences, along with specific advice for meeting legal requirements without sacrificing your ideals.
What Will We Learn Today? Easy Homeschooling Activities
Lauren Wayne, Hobo Mama, value $5.99
Are you a homeschooling parent, or do you want to be? Maybe you wonder how learning can fit into everyday life. Or maybe you’re sure it can, but some days you and your child simply run out of ideas of what to do that’s not the same old-same old.
That’s where this book comes in. It’s an ideabook of more than 550 fun and creative ideas that teach and reinforce learning under eight key curricular subjects. Whether you’re homeschooling, unschooling, or regular schooling, your preschool and school-age kids will enjoy these quick and fun activities that engage their minds and creativity.
The ideas are time- and child-tested activities that our kids enjoy. For them, there’s no division between “learning” and “life” — it’s all of one piece. These idea-joggers use very little in the way of special materials or money but give a lot in terms of natural learning and family connection.
So to sum up:
