I should have read it

It can be difficult to find time to read but some books are better read than listened to. This is one of those books. I would have liked to sit down and taken notes it can be hard to take notes while listening during dishes or laundry. I will most likely buy the physical book so I can reread and take notes.

Just what I needed

This book gave practical suggestions for homeschoolers and being a first time homeschooler of a 15 year old and a 11 year old it gave me a sense of relief. I felt like I could do this and be successful.

Buy the Actual Book

What disappointed you about Homeschooling Essentials: A Practical Guide to Getting Started?

It seems like this book would be better suited to either the physical book or eReader book. The author is female and in describing homeschool teacher she only refers to them as "she," yet the narrator of the audiobook is male. The first part of that is offensive, the second part is just plain weird. Some great information and resources but I would prefer it in book form for easy referencing.
