Updating Home Ed books thread to bump up for information.

Free Range Education: How Home Education Works Terri Dowty (ed) Hawthorn Press

It is a UK book (many are American) and each chapter is written by a different family about their experience - it gives a good idea of the range of experience.

A handbook for families considering or starting out in home education. The book is full of family stories, resources, burning questions, humour, tips, practical steps and useful advice so the reader can choose what best suits his or her family situation.

The Well Trained Mind by Susan Wise-Bauer.

For those of you who want a more structured approach

I really wish I'd known about this when we first left state schooling.

Note that there is a book about school refusal/phobia here that
"documents an alternative approach; that of removing children from school to home educate them, suggesting that far from leading to disaster (as professionals often predict) this can become a life enhancing decision."

Would also perhaps be worth getting your DH to have a look at 'Free Range Education' to get an idea of how folks go about home educating, it is often a good introduction and quite easy to read.
