JUNE 2011 BOOK GIVEAWAY

First, we offer hearty congratulations to Andrea, the winner of our May, 2011 Book Giveaway, Challenging Assumptions in Education by Wendy Priesnitz. Given there may be a postal strike in Canada, it will be interesting to see the route the book will take to reach the home of the winner! Thank you to everyone who entered, and we hope we’ll see you again in the June, 2011 Book Giveaway.

For June, 2011, we offer What Really Matters by David H. Albert & Joyce Reed (Introduction by Wendy Priesnitz, Foreword by John Taylor Gatto) – A treasury of intelligent, penetrating, heartfelt, and often good-humored conversations about children and education. David Albert and Joyce Reed are deeply experienced homeschooling parents and a delightful pair of writers. In this collection of essays, they share their thoughts and experiences, playing off each others’ experiences with and ruminations about society, schools, children and learning…and showing by example how children and young people thrive when trusted to learn from life. This is the second book in the Natural Life Magazine Natural Parenting Book Series. Softcover, 176 pages.

David Albert and Joyce Reed are deeply experiences homeschooling parents and a delightful pair of writers. In this collection of essays, they share their thoughts and experiences, playing off each others’ experiences with and ruminations about society, schools, children and learning…and showing by example how children and young people thrive when trusted to learn from life.

This is a book that will give confidence to any parent considering homeschooling their own children, and will be a welcome sitting-down-with-elders for those who are already deeply engaged in learning without schooling.
~ Kirsten Olson, author of Wounded By School: Recapturing the Joy in Learning and Standing Up To Old School Culture

If I could recommend only one book for familiarizing oneself with the joys and unique possibilities within homeschooling, this would have to be the one.
