An exhaustive (and exhausting) guide to homeschooling your gifted child. The book spends a long time defining what giftedness is and the traits gifted children possess, then discusses various methods of homeschooling in depth, with helpful lists of resources. Despite the book having been published over ten years ago (in 2002), nearly all the web links provided still worked. After reading this book, I feel much more confident of my ability to build a suitable curriculum for my child. ( )

I'm re-reading this right now. Best HS book I've ever read, at least as far as our family situation goes. ( )

This is a great resource for the homeschool educator of a high-ability student. It covers all the basics of homeschool planning such as curriculum and documentation, but it also addresses the special needs of gifted students. ( )
