After being a schoolteacher for over six years and a homeschool mom for almost eleven years, I pretty much thought I had the education thing down pat. I've read about, heard about, seen, or tried many, many different kinds of curriculum and resources. And I've read countless how-to-books on the subject of home education over the years. So what more was there for this veteran homeschool mom of six to discover? The answer to that somewhat silly question arrived in my mailbox packaged in a small envelope. But that little package contained big ideas in the form of the book, How to Teach Your Child, by Tamara L. Chilver. Tamara has had years of experience as an elementary teacher, curriculum coordinator, homeschool evaluator, private tutor, and of course, a homeschool mom. She is also the author of Tutoring Your Elementary Child With TLC and founder of Teaching With TLC Ministries. How to Teach Your Child is a practical, concise guide in an easy-to-read format that is chockfull of ideas, advice, resources, suggestions for scheduling, tips, and techniques that are sure to help new homeschooling parents down the path into the (sometimes seemingly overwhelming) world of home education. But Tamara has also included activities and creative teaching strategies that will inspire and re-motivate even those who've been homeschooling for years. Many of the ideas presented in the book would be ideal to supplement any chosen curriculum. So be sure to check out this book for learning the basics...or for just putting a little more fun, creativity, and sparkle into your homeschool days!

How to Teach Your Child is an excellent book for those needing some practical advice on choosing curriculum and enhancing lesson plans. Tamara Chilver will cheer you with her enthusiasm and inspire you with her useful teaching suggestions. She has loaded this book with lots of information. This is not just a how to get started book - she has drawn upon her years as both a public elementary teacher and home educator and poured out her knowledge on how to teach your children effectively. This book is fresh, fun to read, and will provide you with a heap of "golden" teaching nuggets for the elementary grades. You'll find recommended websites and curriculum titles, and an appendix that includes a list of all the Newberry and Caldecott Medal winners. The author's friendly tone and no-nonsense approach made this guide easy to read and even more realistic to implement. She is not overly wordy nor does she saturate you with too much information - this paperback at just over 100 pages by no means ever felt thin. If you are in anyway frustrated with how things are going in your homeschool, don't pull your hair out - get this book. I mentor a lot of newbies in my homeschool circle, and you can bet I'm going to be recommending this resource to them.

As a homeschooling mom of two, I was thrilled to read this book. I am always looking for fresh ways to add life to our homeschooling day. There's only so much bookwork they can do before their eyes glaze over and they slip into a coma of boredom. How to Teach Your Child is designed to remove some of the mystery from homeschooling while giving parents the tools to make homeschooling educational and meaningful. This book has already become dog-eared on my shelf because of the practical tips that I can apply easily. It's like sitting down and talking with someone who's a little further down the journey and building my own ideas from her experience. And best of all, it's a fun, easy read with fantastic cartoons about homeschooling sprinkled throughout.
