Today, Homeschooling is sweeping the nation. Since Wheeler was himself homeschooled for fourteen years, it is not surprising that homeschooling families love his books. Wheeler is convicted that unless parents make the daily story hour central to the growing up years of their children, the wrong kind of values will be assimilated. It is for this reason that he has become America’s leading story anthologizer (with 82 story collections at last count). It was also the reason Focus on the Family/Tyndale House partnered with Wheeler to produce twelve classic books that generations of families have read to tatters. Indeed, of Wheeler’s 98 books, 90 are geared to homeschoolers.
