My purpose here lies in sharing with you the beautiful resources that enhance my learning and that of my little ones. Here are just a few of the books I adore from our growing home library. The children’s books above, Wild Child & Doug Unplugged, both capture the heart of home education so perfectly! Both my little girl and I love these, as they do a fantastic job of “normalising” home “school”.
The bottom National Parks book is from our op shop, in preparation for our “Road Schooling” journey we’re planning. I absolutely loved reading the books on this shelf that I have so far got through!
Unschooled, Simplicity Parenting and Free to Learn were all fantastic but most of the books I have read are on my phone or audio books, so bare with me while I gather my collection and share my reflections with you. Part of the reason I began this blog was to keep these pearls of wisdom, and go deeper into the philosophies as I apply them in real life.
Below is a list of a few books that I highly recommend.
- Unschooling Rules
- Dumbing Us Down
- Free to Learn
- How Children Learn
- The Unhurried Homeschooler
- The Call of the Wild and Free
- There’s No Such Thing As Bad Weather
- What is Unschooling
Here is just a few of the wonderful Unschooler blogs or social media accounts I can also recommend:
Basically they ALL have a focus on Respectful Parenting, which I feel is a big draw card and driving force behind many parents choice to unschool as an extension of this, allowing childhood autonomy and freedom seldom respected in common culture.
