To Unschoolers, Learning Is As Natural As Breathing
Did you know that a growing percentage of home schoolers are becoming unschoolers? The unschooling movement is founded on the principle that children learn best when they pursue their own natural curiosities and interests. Without bells, schedules, and rules about what to do and when, the knowledge they gain through mindful living and exploration is absorbed more easily and enthusiastically. Learning is a natural, inborn impulse, and the world is rich with lessons to be learned and puzzles to be solved.
Successful unschooling parents know how to stimulate and direct their children's learning impulse. Once you read this book, so will you!

This is an easy to read book, which provides an incredible insight into this often misunderstood aspect of homeschooling.
A must read for all home schoolers and also an incredible read for others thinking about incorporating this approach to their child's education.
I borrowed it first from the library, but will definitely be adding it to my private c0ollection!

My fav book so far for homeschooling/unschooling!, i borrowed it first from the library and found that i was really going to need my own edition and fishpond makes it so easy to have it in my own personal library! This i feel is a "must have" for homeschooling and new to homeschooling, there are great examples in this book its also very inspiring and i just know i will be going back to this book over and over and over in years to come.

This is a great (and very honest) introduction to unschooling. Ideal if you are considering unschooling but are unsure if it is for you - first-hand accounts from parents and unschooled kids make this a 'conversational' read.

I found this to be a brilliant book on unschooling. Couldnt put it down and it really helped me to find out 'what' unschooling was, and how it worked. It has resources, info about tv, the various 'subjects' you cover & how during natural learning and comments from parents and kids being unschooled. Id recommend it to anyone thinking about or doing unschooling as a great reference guide and to read periodically. Loved it.
