20 Books That Inspired Our Homeschooling Journey

Homeschooling For Dummies

I was first exposed to the world of homeschooling through Instagram, blogs, and Youtube back in 2016. I eventually started checking out homeschooling books from the library. One of the only books our library had was ” Homeschooling for Dummies”. I learned so much from this book and it answered all of the questions that I had at the time. It even made me more confident in my choice. I can honestly say that it is probably the reason why I started to homeschool. I eventually ended up discovering more books that have continued to inspire me. These days I spend most of my time listening to them on audible but I also love to have the book in my hand!
