We are a vegan homeschool  family.  We have always homeschooled and my husband and I have been vegan since 1994! wow! I feel I can never find any other vegan homeschoolers. We have lived in TX and NH and now Maine, and I have yet to meet one vegan homeschooler! I have yet to be one other family that is vegan. Anyway, we moved to Maine because of the affordable housing.

Hi, Thanks for the suggestions. I gave her the two books I had: Montessori:play and learn. and, Hainstocks" Montesorri preschool years. She said she ordered Hainstock's Montesoori for elementary years. I looked at that elementary book on amazon, and it sells for $60 used! I hope it helps her. Rebecca
