The 15th Anniversary Edition of The Art of Education: Reclaiming Your Family, Community and Self


by Linda Dobson

The Art of Education

I have an apology to make to Parent at the Helm readers and the dozens of folks who so kindly read and provided reviews of  The 15th Anniversary Edition of The Art of Education: Reclaiming Your Family, Community and Self.

As work on this progressed, it became clear that if we really hustled, we would be able to have this e-book available by July 4th, Independence Day. What a perfect day to launch one of the first books that outlined the “why’s” of declaring family educational freedom!

At the same time, I knew I’d be dead in the middle of a life transition. What I didn’t count on was how much time, energy and attention said transition would require. I figured I’d have plenty of time to launch “my baby,” The Art of Education, in a manner worthy of that baby. I was very wrong!

And so, we’ve decided to give away yet another copy as the Parent at the Helm’s July Book Giveaway – to give you time to read the work of all the reviewers and, of course, the chance to win one as did four people who entered the July 4th Giveaway!

As always, we’re giving bloggers who will share news of this giveaway TWO entries to win – all you have to do is send us the link to your post and you double your chances at being a winner. We appreciate all the work you do to maintain your blog and would love to hear from you.

For more information and to read pre-publication reviews, please visit this post at Parent at the Helm. For those of you who absolutely can’t wait to read, you may order your very own copy today!

Don’t forget to get your entry in today for this important read, and please consider helping us help others by letting your friends know this is available. (We’ve heard this book has convinced MANY families to take the plunge into the wonderful worlds of home- and unschooling!)
