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!

About the Author

Mary Griffith is the author of The Unchooling Handbook (Prima) and a long-time activist with the Homeschool Association of California. Her two children have always been homeschooled.

“The Unschooling Handbook,” by seasoned home school author Mary Griffith, is probably the first book where I didn't look at the clock every other page; it actually held my interest for more than a few minuets. Through quotations from real life unschoolers, Griffith provides a foundation for all people to see everything in life as opportunities for continuing education.
