Natural Curiosity is a warm and contemplative insight into one family's experience of moving from mainstream schooling to home education and learning through the lens of nature and natural historySince becoming 'unschooled' the two children have thrived on a diet of self directed play and learning amassin. Although this was three stars for me I expect parents who are new to the ideas of home education and learning from nature may get a lot from this bookI enjoyed reading about Lisa and her partner's thoughts on education and agree with the authors views I found the notes and random events included didn't add anything for me I think some detail on their daily experience of home education would have been an interesting addition to the book Since education through nature is a major idea of this book I think some ideas for activities examples of learning some facts resources would have really enhanced this bookI enjoyed the section on famous people who were home educated who have gone on to careers involving the natural world I think it's a greatly overlooked fact how many famous people were home educated Lisa mentions David Attenborough Beatrix Potter Agatha Christie wasn't sure how this fitted in with the natural world theme I was impressed to hear that Tolkien was home educated by his mother some others are mentioned Patrick Moore is not mentioned but he was also taught at homeAn interesting read for those considering their children's education The author lives where I live in rural Suffolk and has written this book recently so unlike some home education books this is fairly relevant to the current educational situation in East Anglia

summary Natural Curiosity

Natural CuriosityG life skills confidence responsibility and a vast array of knowledge along the way This thoughtful book touches upon important themes in education and environmentalism such as children's rights in schooling the use and place of technology in learning and the absence of the natural world in mainstream edu. An encouraging book about unschooling with a focus on nature and the natural world from a family who are not at all negative about schools or classroom learning Indeed the children spend some years at primary school before deciding that they preferred to learn at home While this style of education does not work for everyone a great pictures is drawn of a family of motivated learners with parents who encourage the children's interests The book is nicely structured showing the children’s progress and looking at uestions home educators are often asked I like the way that school learning is seen as a positive thing for many and that the children retain friendships with school friends nurtured both in playing outside of school and in some online interactions with games such as Minecraft My slight concern is that the children have only been fully home educated for about two years and little mention is made of difficult days or stresses Towards the end the author writes about her general parenting style Lots of good advice is offered but it sounds as if these children are naturally motivated and amenable; not all children are as easy to unschool For some struggling with day to day parenting or home education this apparently ideal scenario with such motivated children could be uite discouraging The style of the book is a bit jumpy too with random ‘notes’ and ‘interruptions’ throughout Although interesting I found it a bit distracting to have these interspersed in the text However that’s a personal thing; for those dipping into the book rather than reading it straight through they could be uite appealing Still these are minor gripes about an excellent introduction to the principles of unschooling demonstrating how child led learning can cover an entire curriculum and and how children can flourish when encouraged to follow their passions and spend as much time as they wish on any project or interest Definitely recommended for anyone interested in home education or in supplementing their children's school education with a focus on nature
