The New Rainbow Resource Catalog is Here!

Yesterday was the annual event that always threatens to give the mailman a hernia: the arrival of the latest Rainbow Resource catalog ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s right, over 1300 pages of homeschool books, curriculum and assorted goodies. I’ve been receiving Rainbow’s catalog for many years, but this one must be the biggest yet.

Especially exciting for me is that this is the first year The Imperfect Homeschooler’s Guide to Homeschooling has been in the print catalog. The review is on page 11:

If you’re going to take the time to read a book about homeschooling, don’t you want it to be the wholesome, practical advice of a mom who has “been there and done that?” Author Barbara Frank’s warm conversational tone leaves the reader of this book with the feeling that you’ve just finished a coffee chat where you’ve been able to ask all your questions and each was met with a knowing smile that implied she knew exactly what you were asking. And each was met with a no-frills answer that empowers the hearer rather than overwhelms. She covers all the basic topics – getting started, teaching techniques and specific subjects, covering the bases, and home organization. Two chapters were particularly helpful – overcoming obstacles and coping with challenges. In these she not only looks at personal habits that can get in the way but also personality-driven roadblocks. Don’t be fooled by the “plain Jane” cover or the lack of detailed information about homeschool philosophies or educational approaches readily available elsewhere; this is a must-have book that will help you start out or “regroup” your homeschool into a livable lifestyle. 192 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

  1. Sigh. They won’t send it to Canada. Sob.

    However, I agree with their review on Barbara Frank….:-)

  2. It’s out! I can’t wait to get mine. I literally read it cover to cover. I’ll check out your new book and when ordering time comes . . .

  3. I like the free shipping on orders over $150! It’s not hard to go that high when buying curriculum either. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Aw thanks, Janet. Sorry to hear they don’t ship to Canada….lots of hoemschoolers there would benefit…..

    Michelle, it’s irresistable, isn’t it? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Karen, thanks for your kind words!

    Pam, it’s not hard, for sure, but if you just need a few things, you can always find other homeschool moms to place an order with you.

  5. I saw the review of your book while I was perusing my copy of the catalog.

    The problem I have is that there’s so much in the catalog that looks interesting. So many good titles and not enough space in my house, time in our schedule, or $$$$ to buy them all…
