You Can Teach Your Child Successfully
Grades 4-8

by Ruth Beechick
This classic gives nitty-gritty help for each subject in each grade. Become an informed, confident teacher, free from rigid textbooks.

Learning All The Time
by John Holt
This delightful book by the influential author of How Children Fail and How Children Learn shows how children learn to read, write, and count in their everyday life at home and how adults can respect and encourage this wonderful process.
The object of teaching a child is to enable the child to get along without the teacher. We need to educate our children for their future, not our past.
