      General Description:
      Homeschooling with Gentleness - A Catholic Discovers Unschooling
      Suzie Andres
      "Suzie Andres' delightful blend of anxiety, second-guessing herself, trusting
      herself, trusting her husband and her faith, is most fetching. It manifests
      that she loves God, her family, and books, and for that reason alone this book
      is a good read.
      She seeks guidance in fine places: St. Therese of the Little Flower,
      Aristotle, nature, John Holt, various homeschooling experts, and her own experience.
      What Suzie advocates is not for everybody, but it is for those who love to have
      their children with them and love to teach them simply through the performing
      of the tasks of daily life. They must be willing to cultivate in themselves
      the ability to trust the natural desire for learning that God instilled in us
      all and to rely upon the grace He so abundantly bestows upon us."
      -Janet Smith, Professor of the Michael J. McGivney Chair of Life Issues,
      Sacred Heart Major Seminary, Detroit, Michigan and Consulter to the Pontifical
      Council for the Family
      "Homeschooling With Gentleness is a stimulating book about the possibilities
      of Catholic unschooling. It should prove helpful for those seeking to work
      with their children while educating them at home."
      -Patrick Farenga, Author of Teach Your Own: The John Holt Book of
      "Suzie Andres is a graceful writer with a clear understanding of what really
      matters. Her management of the religious aspects of homeschooling — and life —
      is original, and very, very comforting."
      -John Taylor Gatto, Author of The Underground History of American Education
      "Suzie Andres' wise and witty little hook is, as billed, a gentle approach to
      home schooling. Any reader who comes to this subject with fears will have
      them quickly allayed by the bright and positive discussion. You will find here no
      brief against the compulsory schools. Rather, home schooling is seen as the
      natural way, the basic way, in which children can he taught. Suzie Andres
      speaks to Catholic parents who must see their role as a comprehensive one. The
      Church has always insisted that the parents are the primary educators of their
      children. This little book spells out the implications of that."
      -Ralph Mclnerny, Noted Author, Michael P. Grace Professor of Medieval Studies
      and the Director of the Jacques Maritain Center, University of Notre Dame
