Wright on Time - Book series about a Homeschooling family

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi all! I am a total slacker about posting on here and I'm going to try to get more active.

Anyway, I just came across this new book series called "Wright on Time" and its about a family that homeschools...well, road-schools in their RV. The plan is to do a book on each state. They are right up our alley, as we homeschool and travel a lot in our RV. I just ordered the first two books (about Arizona and Utah) from Amazon. We haven't read them yet, but I'm excited about the idea of them. Just thought I'd pass the info along in case anyone else would be interested.

I have the first two here at home! I'm actually meeting with the author on Tuesday for a late dinner/dessert and I can't wait to chat! I just LOVE the idea of a series of homeschoolers-- so I don't have to stop reading and explain school bus etiquette or what "recess" is to my kids

We have the first book-- I can't wait to read it. Between Harry, Septimus, Percy and various dragons we haven't had time for the Wrights yet but will soon. I have heard good things about these books.

I've been wondering about these books: Does the family's religion play a big role? It's not mentioned on the website at all, but sometimes even homeschoolers seem to assume that hs'ing=very religious.

I've seen a few reviews of it on blogs - here is one.

$12.99 for a paperback kid's book? I was very excited until I saw that.

I emailed the author and she said that it religion does NOT play a role in the book I haven't actually seen them, but she seemed to get that some of us are secular homeschoolers and wrote the books accordingly

We got it a while back and read about 1/3 of the book on Arizona. It works very hard to get educational information in the book (in this case about caves). My dd lost interest because the story didn't move along.

The book was completely secular.

She likes the MTH books, but these lack the fantasy hook.

I know. Pricey!
I normally wouldn't spend that much on a paperback chapter book, but I guess I was just excited about the idea. Hopefully my daughter loves them.

I just put in a request for our library to purchase them, and I have them on my Paperback Swap wish list, so hopefully I'll be able to get them one way or another ;0)
