"A joyful and accessible approach to homeschool that harnesses children's natural curiosity and makes learning a part of everyday life, whether they're in elementary or high school. Parents who are deeply invested in their children's education can be hard on themselves and their kids. When exhausted parents are living the day-to-day grind, it can seem impossible to muster enough energy to make learning fun or interesting. How do parents nurture a love of learning amid childhood chaos, parental self-doubt, the flu, and state academic standards? In this book, Julie Bogart distills decades of experience--homeschooling her five now grown children, developing curricula, and training homeschooling families around the world--to show parents how to make education an exciting, even enchanting, experience for their kids, whether they're in elementary or high school. Enchantment is about ease, not striving. Bogart shows parents how to make room for surprise, mystery, risk, and adventure in their family's routine, so they can create an environment that naturally moves learning forward. If a child wants to pick up a new hobby or explore a subject area that the parent knows little about, it's easy to simply say "no" to end the discussion and the parental discomfort, while dousing their child's curious spark. Bogart gently invites parents to model brave learning for their kids so they, too, can approach life with curiosity, joy, and the courage to take learning risks."--

Great book! Makes you think about how your behaviour affects your children, and not only when it comes to learning/homeschooling.
I agree with the previous comment that this book is more for people who have already started homeschooling, and that Susan wise Bauer's book Rethinking school is a better book to read if you still aren't sure if this is for you.

A good refresher / primer for parents who are already homeschooling. Not recommended as a solo text for parents exploring the idea. I would recommend this book along with RETHINKING SCHOOL by Susan Wise Bauer for those thinking about taking the leap.
