I will say it is the least religious moms funschoool journal I have come across. I ordered most of the others first (before there were reviews with images) and had to return them because they were entirely religious and way too much effort to modify. This one is more subtle, but it's still definitely religious/Christian based. I feel these journals could be very popular if they weren't leaning to one specific faith and especially if they were secular. There are many other Bible based journals so it's not like there wouldn't be other options, but for secular, there is literally no other option in the series.
There is also a page that specifically asks how you can bless your husband today, so if you are single/widowed or part of the LGBTQ community, this page will not be of any use to you.
I discovered that my son is predominantly a Detective and was staggered by the author's photograph of some of the books and resources that a Detective Learner might find useful in their learning quest. He already owns three of the non-fiction books shown in the picture! I found it virtually unbelievable that Sarah Janisse Brown could pinpoint not only my son's interests but also his favorite resources and tools. And now that he has my encouragement he's starting to take ownership of his studies.
My other son is still in public school but the things I'm discovering are equally as valid for him. He's a Creator, always tinkering with giant pieces of cardboard, glue, paints and pens. Math work pages are his personal nightmare. So, rather than hovering over him and torturing us both, I tinker along with him now. We're working on a vast project: a teeny tiny Walmart for ants. He's in charge of construction of course but he's allowing me to collaborate. We even get the dreaded worksheets done when the glue is drying. Even better, as we tinker, he tells me all sorts of things I wouldn't otherwise get to know.
Here's what this book isn't: it is not a 'Do This' prescription for us lost and fearful homeschoolers. Instead it is, if you open up and allow it, a book of wisdom that invites you to step beyond the fear and to co-create a foundation for your child's life mastery. It asks questions that too few of us know to ask, so steeped are we in our schooling standards and norms. The biggest of these questions is 'What does my child need in order to learn what they are intrinsically born to learn and how do I facilitate that?'
Yes, I'd rather have a neat and tidy curriculum all laid out for me but, for now at least, I'm following my son's lead. It's his life after all.
I purchased this straight from the publishing company. Please watch my video to see the inside of the book. Enjoy and thanks for taking the time to watch and read my review.
I LOVE this new book! When we started with TT a few years ago I remember how much I loved the advice in the little one and asked Sarah Janisse Brown to share more of her wisdom. This is it y’all! The pictures are so helpful for visual mama’s like me too. Here are a few of my favorite pages 💜
