      From the publisher:
      A Useful Guide to Catholic Home Schooling
      Kimberly Hahn and Mary Hasson
      Two experienced home schooling moms present a very thorough, balanced and
      practical guide to both the merits of home education, as well as the important
      ideas, resources and curriculums to home school. Hahn and Hasson cover all
      aspects -- statistics supporting home schooling's excellence, the nitty-gritty of
      lesson plans, and hundreds of ways to keep the fun in (and boredom out) of
      learning. Most importantly, they offer compelling advice and inspiration for
      parents as they undertake their child's religious, moral and intellectual
      formation.
      This is a reliable guide for Catholic parents who want to stay close to the
      heart of the church in the schooling of their children. The authors demonstrate
      that home schooling is not a fringe movement on the Church's periphery, but
      it is squarely based on Catholic teachings drawn from Sacred Scripture, natural
      law, and the writings of saints and popes. Readers will find the right
      combination of secular and sacred, theoretical and practical. Whether you are
      looking for advice and encouragement, language resources, aids for teaching
      multiplication or phonics -- or the Ten Commandments - this book is sure to be a very
      functional tool.
      "This book gives practical clothing to the truth that there are as many ways
      to home school successfully as there are homes in which to school. It helps us
      place our Catholic faith squarely at the heart of our curriculums. In
      addition to Kimberly and Mary's helpful advice and resources, this far ranging book
      also turns to numerous veteran home schoolers for valuable recommendations."
      - Laura Berquist, Author, Designing Your Own Classical Curriculum
      "Hahn and Hasson provide strong arguments backed by solid documentation to
      reassure the timid and convince even doubters that the best place to educate
      their children in a Catholic culture today is at home."
      - Donna Steichen, Author, Ungodly Rage
      "This readable book is more than a manual for just home schoolers. For all
      parents it offers a rich fund of insights on how to provide a proper formation
      for their children and how to strengthen their families."
      - Charles E. Rice, University of Notre Dame
