“A straightforward, practical guide that takes an anyone-can-do-this approach” (Kirkus Reviews), The Brainy Bunch outlines the Harding family’s well-rounded method for producing college-ready kids by age twelve.

Having six out of ten kids go to college is no small feat on its own, but having six kids in college before their teens—that’s nothing short of incredible. “Never judgmental and not without humor,” this “fascinating read” (Library Journal) is Kip and Mona Lisa Harding’s story of producing exactly those extraordinary results. Kip and Mona Lisa are parents to an engineer (who earned her BS in mathematics at seventeen), an architect (who became the youngest member of the American Institute of Architects), a Navy physician (who earned her biology degree at seventeen), an entrepreneur (who earned an MS in computer science at seventeen), a sixteen-year-old college senior studying music theory and performance, a thirteen-year-old Middle Ages scholar with the highest average in his college class, and four others who are following fast in their siblings’ footsteps! No wonder the family is so used to being asked: How did you do it?

In an “impressive” (Publishers Weekly), down-to-earth narrative, Kip and Mona Lisa reveal with warmth and humility the strategies behind their family’s amazing educational accomplishments. Filled with daily regimens, advice for providing children with fulfilling experiences that go beyond the home, and tips for making the transition to college, theirs is an inspirational real-life success story that anyone can achieve—whether you homeschool your children or not.

Featured on the Today show and FOX, The Brainy Bunch is uplifting and ultimately relatable proof of what any family can accomplish through dedication, love, faith, and hard work.
