An amazing book about the learnin with and from children. It was this book that took my fear of home-schooling away. It also let me see our current school system in a completely different light. The book is packed with really practical tips and stories and I consider it absolutely mandatory reading for everyone who wants to do homeschooling. This book is also strongly recommended by Jill Schinas (see Kids in the Cockpit).
