Learning At Home: A Mother’s Guide To Homeschooling, Newly Revised Edition
“…a book for all parents no matter how they wish to educate their children.”     

“Filled with wisdom” 

Marty’s lovely book is full of helpful advice and ideas for any homeschooling family. It’s bound to be especially comforting to new families who worry whether they’re doing things “right.” (And if you’re looking for a conference speaker, you can’t do better than Marty–some conferences I go to just because I know Marty will be there!)

Every time I’ve spoken at a homeschooling conference with Marty, we’ve ended up talking for hours, picking up right where we left off the last time. Her voice in her book is exactly her–reading it, you feel as though you’ve joined a friendly personal conversation about kids and family and music and play and learning and kids and music . . . . She’s practical, down-to-earth, concrete, and reassuring.  One of my favorite books to recommend, especially for new homeschooling parents.        Mary A. Griffith

Autumn Stories

Two stories about animals preparing for the coming of winter told in simple language illustrated with photographs of needle felted animals.

I love the vivid colors of the pictures as contrasted to the softness of the figures in them. It almost feels three-dimensional. I also love the way the simple story draws the young child into a world of fantasy that is actually based on pure, real, joyful emotion and sharing. My nine-year-old son enjoyed it, so it’s not just for tiny children. ” Kelly Green

Little Dolls - a book of patterns and instructions

I’ve had a lot of fun making these little pipe cleaner based dolls. This book shows you how to make two basic dolls – one with a skirt, the other with pants. Using your imagination, you can create lots of different ones.  They make great gifts for children 3 and up. Even adults enjoy them, especially if you create one based on a profession. I hope that you, too, will enjoy making these little dolls.
