A Home Education Notebook by Ross Mountney

I recently blogged about two books for home educated children and how the fantastic publisher Birds Nest Books are committed to publishing books for those who are under represented in society.

As well as books aimed at children, Birds Nest books have also published A Home Education Notebook by Ross Mountney. This book is a collection of popular articles and blog posts written by Ross over the years which have been updated and organised into 52 chapters (handily one for every week of the year).

A home education notebook,  by Ross Mountney

I have read a few different books about home education since we decided it was the path we were going to take but i feel that this one has been the most easily accessible for me.
The book is easy to read, you can easily dip in and out of it and it is funny in places. It addresses those worries and wobble moments that so many home educators have such as curriculums, too much screen time, exams and social isolation among many other subjects. I really enjoyed reading about what Ross' home educated children and their peers are doing now, it is so inspiring to me. I think I will be using this book regularly over the next few years!

The book aims to inspire and encourage and I do feel that it does that. I would really recommend A Home Education Notebook to anyone seriously considering home education, anyone currently home education or if you simply want to learn a little more about it. I get asked about home ed alot and think this is the perfect book to refer people too.

A Home Education Notebook by Ross Moutney is available to buy now with an RRP of £11.99
