From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do 😸.

With so many of us homeschooling, per se, with schools closed and kids learning online, this is a great way to boost your kid's learning as we all know how computer-learning with remote teaching is failing our kids now in the second year of COVID19 school closures. (Frankly, you are better off turning the teacher off and teaching your kids yourself at least in Ontario...they can not teach while moaning, bitching and whining which is what they are best at...you are better off teaching your kids yourself if you can do so as you can get done in an hour what they take the day to teach, trust me!) Rant aside, this is an amazing book with which to educate your kids, whether temporarily or permanently.- great ideas, resources and concrete ideas will get your kids smarter and learned without the headaches one might expect from learning to homeschool your kids. A great resource - pick it up now as you may still be teaching your kids come September at the rate this COVID is mutating.

    This book was packed with good information. It would be great for a family who is considering homeschooling. It covers homeschooling options, how to homeschool while working and many more topics. Very informative.

    The pandemic of 2020 caused many kids to learn at home. Even if they still went to public school, lessons were done in their houses. Though many parents had to participate in a version of homeschooling, there were a number that made the decision to jump headlong into total homeschooling. This can be a scary idea, but Homeschool Hacks has answers for the most common questions. Each chapter addresses a different topic, curriculum, schedules, teaching while still working, and more are included. This The pandemic of 2020 caused many kids to learn at home.

    This was an informative little book on homeschooling that would probably be quite helpful for those who are new to it. We are not super experienced, at least compared to some who have been going for 20+ years, but have been homeschooling for a few years, and I really didn't come across any new information in this. She did cover much of the basics as well as addressing some niche situations, such as single parents or military families. It was a decent book overall, I just wish it had some new inf This was an informative little book on homeschooling that would probably be quite helpful for those who are new to it.

    I found Homeschool Hacks by Linsey Knerl to be an excellent and extremely informative resource for parents who homeschool their children, parents who are currently homeschooling their children (or even for parents who are helping their children with virtual learning) due to COVID-19 , or parents who are considering homeschooling their children. I appreciated Knerl providing her homeschooling stories as well as other stories from others who homeschool as they were very insightful.

    This book is an extremely powerful resource for anyone homeschooling or considering homeschooling their children. My children are grown now, but I always wanted to homeschool them , but thought I couldn't handle it. After reading this informative and helpful book for homeschooling I gave it to my neighbor who has three children and has stayed homeschooling. Thanks Linsey Knerl.

    I wish I had this book a year ago! I took the homeschool plunge like so many others because of covid. While at times I am scared that I may not be doing things 'correctly' I think pulling her out of school was the best choice for our family and I will keep up with it until she finishes high school. Homeschool Hacks is full of insightful ideas and useful tips. I've learned that I am an eclectic homeschool, I pull ideas from everywhere and do not use any full set of curriculum.

Homeschool Hacks is full of insightful ideas and useful tips. I've learned that I am an eclectic homeschool, I pull ideas from everywhere and do not use any full set of curriculum. And yes I over spent on math only to find out it was not a good fit for my child and hello Khan Academy (it's free!). Like I said, where was this book a year ago, lol. In my local homeschool group I see new parents asking the same questions; how do I do this? What should my child learn, ect... THIS book is for you! It covers so much and by the end of the book you feel less alone and hopefully ready to take that plunge! (and yes, I shared this book with the group!)
