We were saddened to learn of Ruth Beechick's death in late 2013. Ruth was a lifelong teacher, both in the classroom and as a curriculum writer. She was a mentor to the late Debbie Strayer, author of our Trail Guide to Learning series. Ruth's teaching philosophies heavily influenced Debbie's and helped shape the Trail Guide to Learning series. Ruth will be greatly missed. To honor Ruth and her contributions to homeschooling, we are giving away a copy of three of her books: The Three R's, You Can Teach Your Child Successfully, and Dr. Beechick's Homeschool Answer Book.

Be sure to use the Rafflecopter widget below to let us know that you’ve commented. Contest ends at 11:59 PM on Wednesday, February 5 and is open to U.S. residents only.

    I have read you can teach your child successfully so many times that it is dog eared. I love how encouraging she always was. Many times I just needed a practical but encouraging idea to push on.

    I love her principles of really learning through literature, rather than text books. My daughter and I have really loved her influence on TGTL.

    Reading, reading real books, reading without pressure! Grammar learned through writing and reading.

    I’ve never read her books! This would be so great!
