3 Must-Read Books for Parents Considering Homeschooling

The decision to homeschool is often made after much careful thought, consideration, and prayer. For some, like me, the decision is an easy and natural one. I was homeschooled and was used to this lifestyle. I understood and embraced the convictions that caused my parents to make the choice to homeschool nearly 20 years ago, and anything else would just not be right for us. But for many others, homeschooling may seem daunting, mysterious, and totally out of their "comfort zone".

If you are a Christian parent who is struggling with decisions regarding your child's education, here are 3 books that you must read!

1.) Homeschooling: The Right Choice by Christopher J. Klicka This book is a classic. Many a family has made the plunge and decided to homeschool after reading this book. The author, who passed away a few years ago, was an HSLDA (Homeschool Legal Defense Association) attorney and committed homeschool dad. This book gives the background of education in America a serious look and presents solid reasons why homeschooling is the right choice!

2.) Warning! Public Schools Aren't for Christians: A Biblical Perspective by Richard "Little Bear" Wheeler The title of this book may offend some people, but then so does the very name of Jesus. In this book, the author presents sound Biblical wisdom that Christian parents of today desperately need to hear! If you are teetering on the fence because you want your children to go to public school so they can "witness to others," you MUST read this book!!!

3.) The Well Adjusted Child: The Social Benefits of Homeschooling by Rachel Gathercole I happened to come across this book a year or so ago, and I highly recommend it! Finally there is a book that tackles the "What About Socialization?" question head on and refutes the skeptics once and for all! This book shows that not only do homeschoolers get plenty socialization, but they are better socialized than their public schooled counterparts! Afraid homeschooling your children will somehow isolate them or make them "weird"? Read this book and think again!!

If you are a homeschooler, what books would you recommend to someone considering home education? What caused you to make the choice to homeschool?
