Review

* A new school year is a lot like New Year's Day; it offers the chance to wipe the slate clean and make a fresh start, the chance to move ahead in new and productive ways and the chance to work harder and do better than you did the year before. If you've made a new school year ""resolution"" to help your child succeed in school this fall, you'll need to some homework. Here is a new book to put in your backpack before the first bell rings.
""...In Guerilla Learning: How to Give Your Kids a Real Education With or Without School Grace Llewellyn and Amy Silver focus on homeschooling, or education outside the traditional classroom, but they too contend that when adults embrace life with wonder and excitement, the children observing them as role models will be more likely to as well. Guerilla Learning means ""taking responsibility for your own education"" and supporting your children as they learn to do the same."" (Linda Stankard, BookPage, August 2001)
