Homeschooling Only One

by Donna Conner

Ask for an autographed copy!
I’ll be happy to oblige.

You may have only one child due to family size, or your older children have flown the nest and you only have one fledgling left. Or you may be new to homeschooling and are not at your “final” family size, homeschooling your firstborn. You may have another child in public or private school. Whatever the circumstances of your homeschooling journey, I hope my book can encourage you along the way.

This book is awesome and full of information! I wish I would have had access to a book like this when I first started homeschooling my only son. This book is good for anyone homeschooling an only child, or even multiple children. The references are truly a treasure for anyone homeschooling.



“…fits an often overlooked niche in the homeschooling world.”

I just finished this great little book called Homeschooling Only One by Donna Conner! I felt that Donna was talking “to me” in many instances in the book. I found it to be honest, open, and informative. It is also packed full of references.



The article below was written for the June 2004 edition of “Homeschool Reviews For You” Newsletter, by Editor Cindy Prechtel. Her website: provides “Free reviews of homeschool resources — books, curriculum, software and more! Each issue features informative product reviews.”

When I heard about Donna Conner’s new book, Homeschooling Only One, I immediately wrote requesting a copy to review for this newsletter. A book like this has been needed in the homeschool community for a long time, and I was anxious to read what this experienced homeschool mom of an “only” had to share. Although I am raising two children, I found plenty of practical wisdom and encouragement for my own homeschool journey. What I also gained was an appreciation for the unique challenges and blessings of homeschooling an “Only”.

Whether you are new to homeschooling or are a seasoned veteran, Homeschooling Only One is sure to be a helpful addition to your bookshelf. It is full of ideas and recommendations for those teaching/raising an “Only”. Donna begins her book by introducing herself and telling of her journey to homeschooling an only child. She also reminds us that there are many reasons families are homeschooling an “only.” Homeschooling Only One was written with all situations in mind! Some of the topics covered include homeschool basics, an overview of homeschool methods and how they “work” when used to teach an only child, tips for day-to-day living, the importance of support groups, and a helpful appendix with a myriad of suggested books, curriculums and periodicals. My favorite part of Homeschooling Only One is Donna’s year-by-year recap of their journey, including a listing of resources she found the most helpful during each year/stage of her son’s learning.

Homeschooling Only One is really an enjoyable book to read. Donna has a very personable writing style, making one feel as if she’s sitting across the table chatting with you. Those with an “only” and those of us who are homeschooling multiple children can all benefit from this practical, encouraging book!

If anyone would like to be part of helping to save & restore an historic old house, you can designate “for the house” on your donation. The “Leach House” was occupied in 1887, according to the Abstract, so probably was built either that year or the year or two before. Any questions? Contact me! Choose “Other” for your Subject on the form.

There are plans to have a page to show our progress soon. I hope to plan something special for any who choose to help us. We’re desperately trying not to go further into debt and after 30 years, frankly, I’m tired of living in one room upstairs (in essence). Thank you.
