Homeschooling curricula from

Standing in the middle of a curriculum fair, looking around at all the vendors, picking up this colorful workbook here and that heavy textbook there, deliberating, comparing... it can be a little overwhelming. Add the vast chaotic marketplace of the internet, and you might find yourself starting to cry and suck your thumb. Maybe you're new to homeschooling and want some help navigating the choppy waters of curriculum selection, or maybe you have multiple children and don't feel like teaching cafeteria style for each individual. For complete curriculum packages for homeschooling, check out Homeschooling Books.

One big box delivered to your door contains everything you need for a whole year of teaching. There are three different levels of these curriculum packages: comprehensive, basic, and a third level for non-university-bound students. Homeschooling Books also offers Switched-On Schoolhouse, LIFEPAC, and custom curriculum packages to suit your child's needs.

I really like how Homeschooling Booksmakes it really easy for you to contact them. I've been in a few situations with online purchases where I have not been able to reach a real person. This is never going to happen to you with Bill and his team. They state their customer service policy prominently on their website and my experience is that they live by this policy.

At we want you to feel like you’re walking into the corner store in town and purchasing your materials from people you know and trust. During normal business hours we have real people answering the phones and helping you with your questions and orders. We have full contact information on the “Contact Us” page. Phone numbers and email forms to aid you in getting answers.

We don’t hide who we are or where we are. We want you to know that you can call us and we will be there to help.

Lately some websites have started distancing themselves from customers. They “don’t want to be bothered” by the customer and they surely don’t want the customer to know who they are; or who they are owned by. WE DO! We want you to know that we are owned by a company that started in the homeschool business almost before there was a homeschooling business. 1974 is when Mott Media began and its intention from the start was to provide educational materials. Homeschooling was in its infancy in 1974 and there weren’t many publications being produced for the home schooling family; but Mott Media republished Ray’s Arithmetic, McGuffey’s Readers, Harvey’s Grammar and Spencerian Penmanship and we have been ever since.

In 1994 Mott Media launched the Homeschooling Book Club and soon after, the website We have been committed to providing the homeschool community with good materials and good service at great prices.

Homeschooling Books is a sponsor of the GUESS Homeschool Science Fair and we're thankful for their support of our efforts.
