Unschooling Handbook: How to Use the Whole World As Your Child's Classroom
by Mary Griffith -Just from the
cover, you can tell this is not your typical homeschooling book - and not just
because it has "unschooling" in the title!
The colorful cover shows a drawing
of a family driving past a zoo, the beach, a capitol building, and a museum.
They are smiling and pointing; obviously enjoying their journey and many
interesting things along the way. Just like life should be! Inside, Mary has
provided lots of good information, including resources for different subjects,
real-life examples of what people do, and lots of great explanations.
If you or someone you know doesn't understand this whole unschooling idea,
then this may be the book to convince you (or them) to try it. If you are
already an ardent unschooler, it will still give you lots of good tips and
insights into what other unschoolers may do, and lots of information to help you
explain and defend your unschooling decision.
