|The Way They Learn
An excellent book on the learning styles of all children AND adults. It is written so that parents can understand it and begin to identify and search out the strengths of both their children and themselves. Ms. Tobias is careful to warn parents of the dangers of having children inaccurately labled as having a learning disability, when in fact it may be that the child simply has a different learning style than both his teacher and/or parent.

The author shares personal experiences including flaws and stumbling blocks. You get the feeling that one does not have to be a perfect person to homeschool her children effectively and that it is OK to make mistakes so long as you learn from them. Layne gives 20/20 hindsight and states what she would have done if she had known better at the time.
