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, 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. . Some of our products are semester rentals (5-month period). 

Get the scoop on all the rental specifics here and if you are wondering, Why rent? you can find the eight reasons here.

Learn how you can save by renting with these examples found on this post, I Can RENT Homeschool Curriculum?

Rent to own (Try Before You Buy)

With this option, y 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.
