Join Amy Dingmann, author, speaker, and homeschooling mom of two, as she takes you on her continued journey in The Homeschool Highway: Further Down the Road. Follow along as she drops her tire in a Pothole of Pride. Listen while she explains why you should Bypass the Drive-Thru (that one where you can have everything "your way".) Look on while she checks out the Caravan of Separate Cars and explores the good, bad, and ugly of homeschool co-ops. Join her in declining an invitation to the Homeschool Pity Party, and help scan the horizon to see if there is anyone out there besides Those Women Drivers. Consider her valid reason why the homeschoolers behind you might only hear Blah-Blah-Blah From the Front Seat. Wonder together with her about the struggles in the different stages of homeschooling, From Rear Facing Seats to Shoulder Belts. Turn down the radio and settle in for a healthy debate on the reasons some homeschoolers are Taking Shelter in the Ditch. Finally, pull off to a wayside rest for the night and discuss the wisdom that is found by Looking in the Rearview Mirror.

Slithers the snake has had enough. Enough of Animal City, and enough of being an animal altogether. What he wants is peace and solitude, and there's only one way he's going to get it. By transforming himself into a Human Being. Slithers isn't alone. Mane the lion's cub, Trunkie the elephant, and Fury the ferocious border collie, all want to be transformed into humans too, but it isn't as simple as that.
First the four must travel through the dangerous Animal World and get to the Human World, but if there's one thing natives of the Animal World don't like - it's animals that want to transform into Human Beings. Conniving pigs, fearsome wolves, zealous crocodiles, mad apes, and one very sly bear, are just some of the dangers that await, and to succeed the four travellers must use all their wits, courage, and willpower, and ultimately decide; is the freedom they crave found in the Human World, or is it found within themselves?
