One of first book I read about homeschooling was A Thomas Jefferson Education: Teaching a Generation of Leaders for the Twenty-First Century, by Oliver DeMille. It is a fabulous book and really started me out with a great vision of homeschooling. It talks about preparing our children to be future leaders, calling it a "Leadership Education". I HIGHLY recommend this book!
There are more in this series by Oliver DeMille that I recommend as well, but this is the first. He also wrote A Thomas Jefferson Education Home Companion , and Leadership Education: The Phases of Learning. All three books are fantastic and further expound on this style of homeschooling.
She went through various styles and did a week in the life from each style of homeschooling (classical, charlotte mason, eclectic, unschooling, etc.) I also really liked the "what I wish I had known my first year" tips she had throughout the book.
I have read a lot more & will share more another time. I would love to know what books have really impacted you & solidified your choices to homeschool. Leave a comment if you have a book that helped or influenced you.
