The Brave Learner Changed Our Homeschool 1

The Brave Learner – Finding Everyday Magic in Homeschool, Learning, and Life {a review for Penguin Random House}

The Brave Learner is a handbook for, really, any mom or dad who is looking for ways to reduce tension in their home, help their children learn, and create more of those magical moments of discovery for their kids.

The book begins with the story of the author’s early days homeschooling her children. With vivid descriptions of an amazing homeschool mom friend and her glorious homeschooling house, Julie Bogart segues into practical advice for transforming your relationship with your kids and unchaining their imaginations and desires.

This is a book you will want to keep. Not only is it a joy to read, but the handy detailed index allows you to come back to specific techniques and ideas later when you need them. This is more than just a book, it is a handbook you will keep on your shelf and pull out again and again!

If you ever once wondered how to make your homeschooling life better, this is the book for you!

The Brave Learner goes beyond homeschooling to challenge some of the common parenting techniques with a refreshing boldness.

You will look at your children differently. You will hear them differently. Most importantly, you will react to them in a new way that will encourage and enhance your whole family.

Even if you are a veteran homeschooling mom, this book will open your eyes to a new way of structuring your life that you will not regret!

As I read, I discovered opportunities to use the techniques Julie Bogart discusses with my own teens. I put them into practice over the last weeks and the results are amazing!

In this short time, I already recognize that I was inadvertently acting to shut down a new interest in one or another of my kids. Using the ideas Julie presents, and with an open mind, the results have been glorious.

Our homeschool got a kick start.

There are experiments and projects and late night discussions. There are impromptu hikes and adventures and my kids feel free and happy.

Amazingly, those school subjects are getting finished so fast my head is spinning even though I am not focused on academics.

I highly, highly. . .

No, scratch that.

You will not regret buying this book!

Don’t forget to pick up the FREE companion handbook!

And after you purchase the book, you can head over to and download a free 96-page companion handbook to The Brave Learner which gives you a spot to keep notes as you read and think about your own children, and your homeschool, and you. It is a delightful companion that is well worth the time to go grab!
