What Are Homeschool Parents Saying?
Here’s what Shawnele shared with us in an email recently:
I wanted to mention that I am a long-time homesteader and homeschooler and your book, The DIY Homestead, is my all-time favorite homesteading book because I love how every section gives projects/tasks for every level of homesteader. That is brilliant!
“And, because I love that book so much, I jumped on the Unit Study when it came out. Again, I LOVE it! It is so creative and useful!”
