Psst: Happy News for Homeschoolers

February 25, 2008 @ 8:18 pm | Filed under: Books

Alice Gunther’s book about socialization is on its way.

Haystack

To quote the publisher:

Most of us at one time or another have had to wrestle with the issue of socialization, either in dealing with friends and family members who question our decision to home educate, or from our own hearts as we worry about our children’s hopes for friendship. In this book Alice shows that “Socialization is not the weakness of home education—it is its strength and joy.”

Coming this spring from Hillside Education…I for one am counting the days!

  1. Thank you, dearest Lissa!!!!!!!

  2. This thank you is a few days old, but that you so much for posting the “statues in Grand Central Station” link. My 4 & 3 year olds think this is the best game ever. I get the call “there are statues in your call Mom!” at least twice a day now.

  3. You might also be interested in Rachel Gathercole’s The Well-Adjusted Child: The Social Benefits of Homeschooling. I reviewed the book here.
