[From back cover]
Here is THE book for all parents who want to teach their children. It has more help between two covers than any other such book available. It includes sections on reading, writing, and arithmetic, as well as subjects beyond the three R's. The rare common sense is refreshing to meet in an educational book. Although Dr. Beechick is a highly experienced teacher and curriculum developer, she believes that parents are the best teachers of their children. She sweeps away the mystery that surrounds education. After reading this book you no longer will feel that teachers know secrets that are hid from you. You will be a well-informed teacher yourself.
