Although BookShark is a homeschool curriculum provider,  we often get calls from parents who aren't yet homeschooling but who want to know how it all works. They are curious—but fearful and confused—about making the leap to educating their kids at home.

We created this 43 page guide to help those parents understand what homeschooling is like and set them on the path of getting started should they decide that homeschooling is a good fit.

If that's you, welcome! We are so glad you found this resource!

If you weren't homeschooled yourself, the entire homeschool world can seem a bit mysterious. It's radically different from what you experienced at public or private schools. And that mindset shift takes some time. This guide can serve as one of your early steps in developing your own homeschool approach and learning to manage your life as a new homeschool family.
