She did a great job of sharing specific examples of how to encourage learning through "strewing" and just following your child's lead in authoring his or her own learning. A great first book about unschooling, with a lot of references. I am looking forward to reading from those whose unschooled children went to college, or started businesses, or earned employment, or maybe even went back to middle / high school after unschooling. Just curious for a wider breadth of experiences.
Lots of good info, but I think I would have gotten more out of it if she had older children. The author's oldest is only 8. I think at this stage in my journey I'm more interested in knowing how unschooled kids turned out after this "experiment." I still got quite a bit out of this book though.
