Would you like to teach your homeschooler in a new way, without having to plop a bulky, intimidating textbook on the table?  If you’re looking for a way to bring back the fun in learning, then it’s time to close those word-only books shut and instead flip through colorful card decks.

Card decks offer a creative, portable and fun way for your child to learn. One of the best features of educational card decks is that they can be easily slipped into a purse or bag and…viola…now you can teach your homeschooler in a whole new environment…in your yard, at the park, or even at the beach.  With educational card decks, you and your homeschooler can make any location your makeshift school.

Finding the perfect educational cards is easy now that Chronicle Books, an award-winning publishing company in San Francisco (founded in 1967), have published a variety of educational cards for all ages and disciplines.

The Carpenter Has Arrived

“The Carpenter of Auguliere” is a charming fable that engages and enthralls.

“The Carpenter of Auguliere,” D. Wayne Dworsky’s latest work, engages readers from the start by the author’s ability to pen such descriptive details and vivid exchanges which invite the reader into the story. The book immerses you in another time.  His style of writing brings characters, locations and animals to life, making them leap off the page.

Homeschooling families -- especially those whose children have been in school ---quickly realize that homeschooling becomes home-living. We focus on home-centered life as a natural outgrowth of home "schooling" and soon we are living somewhat as our grandparents did -- cooking at home, entertaining ourselves in the "living" room (!) and caring more for our dwellings far more than when we were only in them to sleep.

So, living with home as the center soon brings each family to a confrontation with clutter, junk-collecting and untidiness in general. A family can't be in an environment for 24/7 and not mess it up! And even the cleanest person in the world is not necessarily organized and neat. It is conceivable that one person could spend almost as much time cleaning up as it takes two or three people to make the mess. In our world, so centered on consumption, often we are not in touch with what we need vs. what we have. Before we become buried under our stuff, help is needed -- and help exists in the form of Mr. Don Aslett.

One of the greatest advantages of homeschooling is being able to develop a course of study that fits your child's individual needs, talents, and interests. Homeschooling allows you to build on a child's natural curiosity and develop a love for learning that lasts a lifetime. But, oh, the choices we now have!
There are so many opportunities for learning...so many curriculum options...so many hands-on resources...so many projects and activities available.

How do we choose?
How do we put it all together?
Where do we start?
Or where do we go from here?

Shopping for standard issue textbooks can, and usually is, a very trying experience.  “So many sites, so little time” pretty much summarizes my previous experiences. Shopping for books appropriate for, and geared toward, the homeschool market is an even bigger challenge. Laurelwood Books (www.laurelwoodbooks.com), provider of new and used textbooks and other homeschool-related curricula, has met the homeschool book shopping challenge and has proven to be a “lifesaver” for countless homeschool families.
