Reviews

"Not your typical education book (for starters, it's funny)...Cummings remains inquisitive, thoughtful, and a little unsure of herself in a refreshingly humble way--precisely the qualities a parent should look for in a teacher."
--TIME

"Hilarious"
--PEOPLE "Light and witty...I can vouch for much of what this endearingly self-deprecating writer has to say."
--Meghan Cox Gurdon, The Wall Street Journal

"The Year of Learning Dangerously recounts Quinn Cummings's hilarious crusade to find the best educational path for her daughter. Reading her outrageously entertaining observations not only makes me want to homeschool my (nonexistent) children, but it also makes me want to be Quinn's best friend. A must-read."
--Jen Lancaster, author of Bitter Is the New Black and Jeneration X "A hilarious, friendly companion to charm and entertain parents and educators, whether they homeschool or not. Honest and direct, Cummings is willing to tell all of her experiences: not just the happy sunshine moments, but the brutal realities of educating and raising children." --Lydia Netzer, author of Shine Shine Shine "If you think homeschooling is crazy, this book might just change your mind. If, after you've read it, you think Quinn Cummings is crazy, you might be correct. Lucky for us, she's the kind of crazy that manages to be insightful and hilarious all at once."
--Alice Bradley, co-author of Let's Panic About Babies! "In The Year of Learning Dangerously, Quinn Cummings dares to go where few parents have gone before. Her adventures in homeschooling are fascinating, loving and most of all hilarious. This book is a great gift to parents and the people that wonder what make them tick. I loved it."
--Julie Klam, New York Times bestselling author of You Had Me at Woof
