Summary: Have you decided to homeschool and aren’t sure where to start? Are you overwhelmed by curriculum choices and trying to figure out exactly what you need to do? How to Homeschool in Canada is your travel guide to beginning this homeschooling journey with confidence.

Homeschooling is a wonderful adventure. Having all the right tools and equipment will make it easier to enjoy the journey. If you are looking for a guide to illuminate your path, this is the book for you.

How to Homeschool in Canada

This book is written by Lisa Marie Fletcher of The Canadian Homeschooler. Her blog and this book are the GO-TO guide for Canadian homeschoolers or prospective homeschoolers. This book however, is just as informative for someone outside of Canada. There are a few Canada specific chapters but it certainly wouldn’t hurt if a non Canadian came across a copy.

Topics covered include but are not limited to: deciding to homeschool, picking a homeschooling method, choosing curriculum, planning your year, finding a routine, keeping your house clean, prioritizing responsibilities, homeschooling multiple children, handling burnout and more.

If you are considering homeschooling or just started, you will WANT this guide. She uses travel as a metaphor for your homeschool journey and it fits perfectly. She references travel many times while explaining things. I really think it helps the information to click.

I knew of Lisa’s blog before I started homeschooling. When we made the decision to homeschool hers was the first blog I went to. I’m so glad I did. Her book is simple but thorough. If you don’t have time for a 400 page homeschooling manual but just want the basics for now, this is it. You can always read more later. This book is great as a gift to a new homeschooling family.
