My Learning Adventure Begins
A HOMESCHOOLING STORY
My Learning Adventure Begins is a story about a little boy’s first year as a homeschooling student. Written from his point of view, he shares his frustrations, curiosity and his increased understanding of the world around him.
Use this book to introduce your child to homeschooling. Included at the end of the story are Learning Adventure Activities and an encouraging letter from me to you.
What a refreshing reminder about the fun of learning.
My Learning Adventure Begins – A Homeschooling Story starts at the very beginning of a young child’s homeschooling journey. Such a new concept of learning with books is a bit scary for him. We follow the family’s adventures from the arrival of curriculum, to his daily adventures and learning time, all told from the view of the young child. You see how they feel about field trips, nature studies, learning with Mom and Dad, attending a co-op and triumphs at the science fair. You feel the sense of accomplishment the young child feels as he progresses through his year. You also feel his nervousness at his first state testing.
The young boy is encouraged to love learning even without textbooks through library visits, and learning outside books such as growing a garden, helping his neighbor and working on money skills at garage sales. They also have many more adventures on vacations.

What readers are saying...
A uniquely delightful book that is an encouragement for both parents and children to try the adventure of homeschooling. The story is very real and very practical.
We’ve carried many homeschooling books over the years, most of which tend to be overwhelming for parents who are new to the idea of homeschooling. This book is a great place to start, first for parent then for child, to introduce a perspective of education that has been missed by so many families for several generations.
This story gives a glimpse into what homeschooling is about. I love how the whole family comes together and helps the little boy during his learning adventures. There are even a few bonus activities at the end of the book that my daughter and I can’t wait to try.
My Learning Adventure Begins has been a great reminder for me. Life around us is a great learning adventure. There’s so much to see and learn. The library is packed full of books to take our children around the world. Not everything is in a textbook. Sometimes we all need that reminder. I loved how the family found that balance between table learning and “fun” schooling.
An inspiring story for parents and children alike! Be sure to add My Learning Adventure Begins – A Homeschooling Story to your library today.
This book truly captures the essence of homeschooling. Both encouraging to a parent embarking on the adventure of homeschooling for the first time, while also being beautifully reminiscent to those that have traveled the path of schooling at home before. I find my mind whirring with all the possibilities that learning from daily life brings.
