Whether you are a seasoned homeschooler or post pandemic we know that a good book can really make all the difference to a home education journey. There is so much literature both off and online available for the home educator and you never know it all. We turned to the Amaliah Parents to recommend their books on Home education.

There are two personal favourites for me that gave me an insight into home education very early on in my journey to choosing this route for my children. Firstly, Educating Your Child In Modern Times: Raising An Intelligent, Sovereign, & Ethical Human Being by John Taylor Gatto, Hamza Yusuf, Dorothy L. Sayers and Nabila Hanson followed by Fitra Journal magazines by Brooke Benoit which feature a range of essays from Muslim Homeschoolers.
From teaching them to read to instilling in them the love for seeking knowledge, these books are written by experts who’ve gone through it all.
Most importantly, for many home schooling parents we often need parents who have been through it all or have expert understanding on education to re-assure us that they are doing enough and that children learn through living and loving, these books were written to motivate you, offer insight and provides how to’s.
I'm a simply striving to be better and improve in different areas of my life through more self awareness, experiences and learning more about the deen. You'll find me talking about community, connection, planting & growing, seeking the truth in an age of propaganda and misinformation. This year I want to document more to do with food heritage and history so watch this space or reach out. Have a listen to the Amaliah Voices podcast where I talk passionately about Islam, nature, motherhooding and back home. Link in bio peeps.
