(They are presented in no particular order)

Homeschooling: A Patchwork of Days
Homeschooling: Open House
both by Nancy Lande
REVIEW: Probably the second most common question I get, when talking about homeschooling (right in between "How do I get started?" and "What about socialization?", is "What is a typical day like?" In Nancy Lande's initial book, 'Homeschooling: A Patchwork of Days' we get a good glimpse in the window at thirty different homeschooling families' versions of that "typical day". She follows up on several of those families, and introduces some new ones in the second, 'Homeschooling: Open House'. Look for reassurance and inspiration on your journey through these books. You may also find yourself looking at your daily life with a new focus and noticing educational opportunities in places you hadn't considered before.

If I had to give one 'best piece of advice' to homeschoolers, it would be the same I would give any parent - "Read, read, read, and read some more - with, to, and about your children!"
