Review:

"'Evaluating Books' will be an eye-opener for most homeschooling parents. Written in an easy-to-follow format, parents will become much more aware of the slant of many texts and will be able to teach their children to be even more discerning. Christian parents should be particularly interested in Mr. Maybury's ideas as he strongly advocates return to laws of a higher power rather than government laws. --Martha Robinson, Reviewer for HomeschoolChristian.com
