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.

Loved it, and it blew my mind several times. So many thought provoking ideas about WHY we do things the way we do, without even considering if there is a current day reason or if it's the best thing for our family's.

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.

This is a great introduction to the idea and practice of "unschooling" and some very useful advice and resources for a parent considering making it part of their lifestyle & children's lives.
