A Home Education Notebook by Ross Mountney
Ross Mountney began writing about home education with The Diary of a Home Educating Nobody, her regular piece in the Education Otherwise newsletter. With the advent of the internet, she created her blog, Ross Mountney’s Notebook, in which she continued to offer words to encourage and comfort both new and established home educators alike.
A Home Education Notebook is a collection of some of her most popular articles and blog posts which have been updated, with new material added, and arranged in 52 chapters so you can be sure to dip in and find inspiration every week of the year.

See what a one family’s typical week of home education looks like, and what mischief Harry can get up to in that time!
