7 Must Have books for the Homeschool Mama

We are about to embark on our 9th year of homeschooling.
I want to encourage you, whether just deciding to homeschool or you are also a seasoned mama.

Here are the books I find myself turning to most often. Some more than others, but they are all on my bookshelf.

Homeschool Mom’s Bible ~ God
First and foremost please make sure homeschooling is God’s calling on your family. Seek His guidance in all of it.

Lies Homeschool Moms Believe ~ Todd Wilson
A quick read that will encourage you on your journey. One that you will come back to again and again.

Dumbing Us Down ~ John Taylor Gatto
An older book, but a must read.
“Although teachers do care and do work very, very hard, the institution is psychopathic-it has no conscience. It rings a bell and the young man in the middle of writing a poem must close his notebook and move to a different cell where he must memorize that humans and monkeys derive from a common ancestor.”
― John Taylor Gatto, Dumbing Us Down: The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Schooling

The Ultimate Guide to Homeschooling ~ Debra Bell
A great book for new and seasoned homeschooling parents alike.

Homeschooling with a Meek and Quiet Spirit ~ Teri Maxwell
This book helped me change from a yeller to a quieter mom. I wasn’t Michelle Duggar after I read it, but I wasn’t a yeller anymore.
It was life changing.

Top 102 Picks ~ Cathy Duffy
THE list of curriculum in one place. I have the Top 100 Picks and I still go back to it.

Teenage Liberation Handbook ~ Grace Llewellyn
This is a must read if you are leaning toward Unschooling. It’s also good if you are
trying to copy the classroom approach at home.

What would you add to the list?
