I’m in the middle of A Year in the Maine Woods by Bernd Heinrich, which I am totally absolutely loving. I love being in nature but I’m usually bored silly by nature narratives, but this one is pulling me right in.
I’m also reading Teach Your Own by John Holt, which is something I really need these days. The only school-age homeschoolers I know are actually schooling their kids at home, which is different from what we’re doing. We’re more of life-learners or unschoolers, if we need a label. So this book is a nice and supportive companion for me so I can read stories from all sorts of families about how their young people have learned without conventional methods of schooling.
I just borrowed One-Handed Basket Weaving: Rumi Poems on the Theme of Work, translated by Coleman Barks. Looking forward to sneaking away with this.
