I've been researching a lot about homeschooling and concerned about choosing the right curriculm. This book was very light hearted and reminded me that I don't need to have everything all figured out. The humor keeps it light hearted and reminds you to laugh at yourself when you make a mistake and then move forward.
It's just a good simple light hearted story.

This was fun to read because of the humor, but not intended to serve as a realistic guide. Most of us can't afford to jet around the country checking out education alternatives, or hire personal tutors to enrich the homeschooling experience. Her daughter seems to have been exceptionally obnoxious and annoying, but we can hope that comic hyperbole played a role in the story!
