There are a few books I consider must-haves for a homeschooling library. Beyond Survival, by Diana Waring, is one. Her follow-up book, Reaping the Harvest: The Bounty of Abundant-Life Homeschooling, is another one I’d recommend; it may even be more important than her first book. I am not exaggerating when I state that this book completely changed how I viewed my children and homeschooling.

A Homeschool Classic!!!Beyond Survival: A Guide to Abundant-Life Homeschooling by Diana WaringBeyond Survival gives you the preparation and working plan for a successful homeschooling experience. With confidence and compassionate humor, Diana Waring leads you on a joy-filled educational journey. My mom bought this book back in the 90s when she started homeschooling myself & my siblings. Decades later, it is my turn and as we made the choice to homeschool, my mom gave me her book and said "Read this!" I did and what a wonderful book that is relevant, inspiring and helpful. It has a permanent spot on my nightstand so in those foggy days I can flip to my favorite spots. I plan on saving the book to pass down to my daughters when it is their turn. A homeschooler must have. Andrea This book offers practical help with the real questions of homeschooling and provides you with an extensive list of proven resources.
