Having received a Kindle recently for my birthday I was excited to “discover” They’re Your Kids: An Inspirational Journey from Self-Doubter to Home School Advocate by Sam Sorbo in the Kindle store. Since she is one of the speakers on the schedule of the Teach Them Diligently Conference coming up this year, I thought it might be good to read the book.
I was not disappointed. The subtitle of the book, An Inspirational Journey from Self-Doubt to Home School Advocate, really sets the stage for the book. The book is divided into two parts:
1. Why Home School?
2. My Story
As she described the whys of homeschooling, the book is full of facts as she takes the reader through everything from the state of the public school systems to the history and political information a parent needs to understand why home schooling is best for families.
I really liked her story as well because in it I found some great recommendations as well as some things my wife and I can relate to. It is nice to know that a family like hers in Los Angelas can relate to a family like mine in the Midwest. We are all in this together.
Two thumbs up and I’m really looking forward to hearing her speak!
