I rose early to sit at the kitchen table this morning during the still dark hours, alone, and excitedly finished Karen Andreola’s Pocketful of Pinecones: Nature Study with the Gently Art of Learning today. Yet, I’m sad that it has come to an end. I enjoyed spending time with “Carol” and her family and welcomed the pause each time I read a few (or, several) pages. It amazes me the way Mrs. Andreola was able to weave together a story AND demonstrate for the reader exactly what it means to be a Charlotte Mason styled home educator.
Breath of fresh air!
On to Lessons at Blackberry Inn: Adventures in the Gentle Art of Learning. Update: I devoured it in less than a week! Sweet lessons in the “gentle art.”
