A Good Start: The Less-than-$150 Homeschooling Collection

Many librarians I speak to tell me that they don’t have much money to devote to serving homeschoolers and feel overwhelmed trying to figure out where to start. With that in mind, I offer you my Less-than-$150 Homeschooling Collection. These are books that span a wide variety of homeschooling needs and should circulate and prove useful for a good number of years. Prices are retail and links are to Amazon, although most of the books are available from several other sources.
