Cathy Duffy’s Classic: 101 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculum

Submitted by on July 23, 2013 – 11:41 amNo Comment

If you are new to Homeschooling, want to give a gift to a mom who is just taking the homeschooling plunge, or if you need a change of curricula, this is the book for you. Cathy Duffy’s work has been such a help to many newbies in sorting out the learning style(s) and reading up on the specific features of curricula that they want to try before they buy.

Are you a new homeschooler? When you click on the link at the end of this paragraph, you’ll be offered a one time opportunity* to download FREE chapter 4 of 101 Top Picks; it’s about learning styles. It’s very helpful, and will give you an idea of Cathy’s style and substance. Ready for that link? Here it is:

For most of us, there’s no one perfect curriculum that lasts for our whole homeschooling life. As I wrote in my more general post, “Stars and Seasons”, we may go for quite awhile with one approach, and then things change in our families, or seasons of life, and we need a different direction to head. With Cathy’s book on your shelf, and with a bookmark to her excellent website, which offers in-depth reviews of curricula that didn’t make the Top 101 list, you’ll always have a place to start in your search!

This homeschooling classic has recently been released in digital format, so there’s no reason to wait if you want to get started with researching homeschooling curricula, and learning valuable tips that will help you to define more clearly your unique goals for the journey ahead. For those of us old fashioned folk who still like paper, you can order from the above link and the book will come quickly to you! Enjoy!


*If you decide to go there and don’t want to–or can’t–download this free chapter now, just be advised that you’ll need to clear your digital cookies for another offer to download this free chapter.
