Welcome to Yellow House Book Rental! We are primarily a homeschool curriculum, rental service. However, we offer a variety of services. You can compare each one, at Yellow House Book Rental, and decide which is best for your family.
Who and what is Yellow House Book Rental?
We do and we are many things, but our main purpose is to serve YOU, our homeschool community! We are so glad you are here.
We started out as a homeschool curriculum rental service because we wanted to help you save money and we knew that renting curriculum was a low-cost option, but we have learned so much along the way about what our customers need and want. We are continually adding products and purchase options as we grow and hear from you!
First, let me introduce myself. I am Michelle Osborn, the owner and founder of Yellow House Book Rental. I enjoy running YHBR as well as providing counseling and guidance for homeschool families. I am a wife of 30 years, a 22-year homeschool veteran, and mom of four amazing children (now adults) and a worship leader. You can find out a little more about me and my family in the about us.
Services we provide here at Yellow House Book Rental
Rent homeschool curriculum- Most of our products give you a rental and or purchase option.
Our rental service allows you to rent most products for a 10-month period. There are two choices: August through May or September through June. Some of our products are semester rentals (5-month period).
Life of Fred Elementary and Intermediate Series Math books can be rented any time of the year.
Rent to own (Try Before You Buy)
With this option, you may choose to rent your homeschool curriculum and anytime during that rental period you decide that you enjoy it enough that you want to keep it, just email us letting us know that you would like to buy it. We will send you an invoice with the remaining cost to purchase it. (The rental cost minus the purchase price of the curriculum) There are a few products that are not for purchase and are marked as such.
Purchase consumable homeschool curriculum
Many homeschool curriculum products have student workbooks that are consumable. These are not rentable products.
The teachers' guides, manuals, and answer keys are excellent items to rent, especially because these items can be the most costly. The student consumables are for purchase only.
Purchase used curriculum
We have a small Used Curriculum Market. Some of the items have been previously rented, are shelf copies, or are new but we are no longer selling. You can find the condition of the books in the description.
Yellow House Book Rental's own digital products
Over my 22 years of homeschooling, many moms have come to me for help with homeschooling their children, most often concerning homeschooling their teens.
I have created my own products, Homeschooling Teens Successfully where I cover many of the topics that I have helped parents with preparing their teens for life after high school. I continue to create new products as I come across new topics that are of interest or concern to parents of teens.

Homeschool Consultation service
I am very passionate about homeschooling and love sharing what I have learned during my 22 years of teaching my four children at home.
Sometimes you just need to spend time talking with someone who will listen to your situation and give you specific help for your family and child's specific needs. I'd love to help.
