Library Journal Review
Each child is unique and their educational journey should be planned accordingly, believes Boden, who began homeschooling her own children due to her perception that there was too much focus on grading and testing in schools. She advocates for instilling education through books and observation of the world outside, paying attention to the child's personality and gifts, and trusting oneself and one's child. This book is not so much an educational manual as it is a call to adventure. The end of each chapter includes a section entitled "Take a Mason Moment," which includes suggestions for implementing the techniques of educational reformer Charlotte Mason, who believed that education was an atmosphere, a discipline, and a life. These ideas include nature study, storytelling, and deliberate inactivity. This book also demonstrates how parents can reframe their perspective of their children's strengths and weaknesses. VERDICT This is a helpful resource for the many parents who homeschool, and it may also by utilized as a guide for all parents to incorporate more nontraditional learning activities into their child's routine.
