The Handbook of Nature Study has become my best friend. It hasn’t always been that way. In fact, I purchased it, could not figure out how to use it, and promptly sold it to a fellow homeschooler. I thought about this book from time to time as other homeschoolers would write about it on their blog or I would see it mentioned in nature study
With the abundance of homeschool curriculum available these days, it can be hard to choose what might work for your family. Just imagine… You need to explore a different ‘something’ for a child. For example, maybe the program used in your family worked for another kiddo. But, not this one…or, at least not in the same way. So, you jump online to search. And search.
