Description: The author, "Anonymous," is the mother of a profoundly gifted boy whom she decided not to send to the local elementary school, but to educate at home instead. This book is the mother's side of the correspondence between herself and the principal, explaining why she was not enrolling her child in a conventional school. "Anonymous" traces in painstaking detail the educational development of her profoundly gifted son between the ages of six and nine, as she uses a child-directed method of learning.
