Homeschool Sanity by Sherry Hayes

The book Homeschool Sanity is a culmination of experience and the result of a great deal of work on the part of Sherry Hayes, and I am greatly pleased to be allowed to offer it to you free of charge for this one week period. I think you will find it to be an invaluable aid in your homeschooling efforts!
The writing of Homeschool Sanity was first begun as the result of a collaboration between Sherry Hayes and myself, in which I asked her to write introductions for the books in the Eclectic Education Series (EES). She did a wonderful job, and wrote introductions for each of the 5 collections of books in the EES: Ray’s Arithmetic, McGuffey’s, Grammar, Science, and History.  

Inspired by this, she proceeded to expand on her efforts, adding advice and philosophy she has gathered over her 23 years of homeschooling her 15 children ending finally with the creation of this wonderful, expansive, and thoroughly practical guide to homeschooling, in which she gives what every homeschool mother and parent needs: Homeschool Sanity.

This is not a cheap freebie with a few words of general advice. Homeschool Sanity provides over 160 pages of thoughtful, practical thinking from a mother who has dealt for more than 23 years with the real, every-day problems and difficulties that homeschooling can bring.

“Over the last 23 years of actual homeschooling experience I have tried just

about every curriculum and method available, from textbooks to unit studies to

Charlotte Mason to the unschooling methodology.” – Sherry Hayes 

Normally Homeschool Sanity is sold by Sherry Hayes on her blog Large Family Mothering for the price of $11.50, but for just one week she has graciously allowed me to give away her book, absolutely free! This is a unique opportunity, which I hope you will take advantage of. Make sure and tell your friends about it as well; I can only give the book away for one week… and I want you and as many other homeschoolers as possible to get this fantastic book!

"Thank you again for my order.... This is a treasure and I'm glad you are keeping it alive and sharing it."

“By the time a student finishes the Practical Arithmetic book, he/she would be ready to get a job and understand basic financial concepts (not that I expect my 12 year old to go to work, but they could help with the family business and family finances with ease)”
~ Mandi Aumann


Thanks for your help and support.  My children love to do Ray's Arithmetic.  I believe it makes math fun!  Of course, I love math so I am biased.



“Because of your work on the Ray’s CDs, we were able to make our decision to use Ray’s as our math curriculum. Thank you for your time that you have already put into these wonderful, rich programs. We also are using the Robinson Curriculum and are enjoying that as well. “
In Christ,
~Josh and Heather

“Excellent product! Your customer service is also Excellent! Thank You. “

"As a former math teacher at a classical and Christian school, where we used another popular modern math curriculum, we have chosen to use Ray's for the homeschooling of our four children.  Our use during the last four years has proven that Ray's Arithmetic does what a good math program should do; build mastery of mathematical skills and help students to think mathematically (not just memorizing rules or recipes for solving problems).  It does this through focused incremental practice of skills and a variety of practical word problems.  I give it my highest recommendation."

Robert (& Elisabeth) Terry

I bought Sherry Hayes ebook recently and just loved all the practical advice on how to use these materials.  It has given me the confidence to use the entire curriculum.  What a wonderful resource!


"We love the Ray's Arithmetic series  because it provides such a great value!  With heavy use of word problems and "real world" math, and progressing logically from concrete to abstract, this series coversK-8th grades for less than what most programs cost for a single grade."
~Rachel Ramey, homeschooling mother of 3, and more to come!  
"Over the last 23 years of actual homeschooling experience I have tried just about every curriculum and method available, from textbooks to unit studies to Charlotte Mason to the unschooling methodology…. Today, not only the McGuffey Readers Series, but just about every primary subject in our homeschooling is based on or benefited by these dear old volumes and the time-honored practices they promote."
 ~ Sherry Hayes, homeschool mother of 15 children.
