Description: From School Library Journal
The concept of this book is wonderful: a guide for librarians on how to better serve their homeschooled population. However, this is not a quick "how-do-I-deal-with-this-issue" manual. It reads more like a textbook. The authors begin by explaining what drives many people to homeschool their children and go on to describe different techniques. Their advice tends to be as time-consuming as reading the book: examine your collections, talk to parents of homeschoolers, talk to publishers of curricula, and possibly bring the two together. Many of the ideas seem very expensive, such as buying curriculum-supporting textbooks and special college guides aimed at homeschooled teens, which need to be updated often. Librarians are urged to go to Friends groups or apply for grants to create curriculum collections for this often-limited audience. The volume does include several bibliographies, though, and the list of books about the subject would be helpful to parents/families new to the process. A list of homeschooling organizations by state is also included.andndash;Marlyn K. Beebe, City of Long Beach Public Library, CA
