Home School Source Book, Described
on the cover as "A comprehensive catalog and directory of creative learning
materials that are challenging, constructive, and fun. With commentaries,
notes, and essays about liberal arts education at home, from birth through
adulthood. Creative solutions for homeschooling families, alternative schools,
and teachers. Ideal for parents supplementing public education." By Jean
and Donn Reed.
School Phone Book, The A book of addresses,
websites, e-mail contacts and, of course, phone numbers. The information
is organized into three main categories: curriculum resources, noncurriculum
resources, and state resources, each divided into sub-categories. The book
is free but you may need to pay postage if you want to get it directly
from the publisher. The book doesn't say that, but I don't want to see
them go broke before I get an ad in their 2002 edition. Parley Street Press,
P.O. Box 1967, Cypress, TX 77410. Toll-free . That's

The many coupons provide a great variety of interesting products, all for less than the regular cost. plus shipping and, if Calif., tax. Elliott Family Press, 40960 California Oaks Rd., #150, Murrieta, CA 92562. http://www.homeschoolcouponbook.com.
Online Bible and Power Bible The latter is newer and inexpensive. Expect $19. Both are CDs and have nice features. I examined Power Bible 3.0. Except for a few rather minor points, it is excellent and easy to use. It includes several Bible versions. The interlinear feature allows you to click on the original word and read its definition. My version of Online Bible is 7.05. It has more versions and perhaps a better dictionary although some features (like cut-and-paste) is more awkward (unless the newer version has changed that). Its price is higher but probably still less than you would pay for other concordances. Check the US sales website for both http://www.biblecd.com.
Teach-At-Home is a general website for home schoolers. They have basic information and links to more, and they have lots of ads. http://www.teach-at-home.com/.

Educational Travel On a Shoestring When you travel, save room for this book packed with ideas. Judy Allee and Melissa Morgan, authors of Homeschooling on a Shoestring make travel a series of learning and sharing experiences. They remind of some things you already know like car travel being more economical than flying when you have a larger family. But what they tell you about looking for information about an area you plan to visit or volunteering or collecting plant specimens along the way or pros and cons of owning an RV or taking pictures to sell can enrich your experience. The book is reasonably priced at around $15. 2002 from Shaw Books. Author sites are www.DreamsOnAShoestring.com and www.eaglesnesthome.com.
