The Ultimate Book of Homeschooling Ideas is a compilation of homeschooling activities that really work in math, reading, science, and other areas of homeschooling. The author begins with a list of things you already have around the house and tells you what subject areas they can be used for (measuring cups for math fractions, etc.). She then continues with different chapters for each subject and describes activities that other homeschooling parents have used in that subject. The math chapter read a lot like the book Family Math with activities that work for entire families.
There are internet links spread throughout the book. I’m not big on books with internet links because they’re outdated before the book even makes it to print. However, there is enough other information in this book to make it worth the purchase. Plus, it’s still in print so it’s affordable.
Overall grade: A+
If you can only afford one homeschooling book, this is the one to buy.
