Learning in Freedom

Welcome to Learning in Freedom, a blog all about the learning adventures (and mishaps) of the Allen family. My four children are unschooled, following their interests and passions every day and living the lives of their choosing. The purpose of this blog is to share our every day lives (and my not-so-humble opinons) with anyone interested in stopping by. We hope this will give a glimpse of how natural learning unfolds from day to day......

More on blogging and The Birth House

You'll notice there's a new link on the left sidebar. It's to Bloggapedia, where you can find blogs on just about ANY topic. You can search "unschooling" and find some blogs (personally, I think more need to be added) including this one. You can also rate blogs if you wish. I just learned about them today, when they informed me this blog had been added to their directory.

I've talked about the Birth House and it's debut here in the U.S. Well, it's officially available now, so pick up your copy soon!! I'm still in the early stages of the book, but I can tell you that the main character, Dora Rare, seems as real as anyone I know. Ami McKay is an enchantress, weaving her spell with a character that will stay with you long after the last words touch your eyes. I long to sit with Ms. Babineau (another beautiful, strong character) and eat her beignet's while sipping herbal tea. The history and culture of Nova Scotia in early 20th century life is wending it's way through my mind today.

Coming up on the 27th, I will be posting an in-depth interview with the author (and unschooling Mama) Ami McKay. Learn about the history behind her inspiration for The Birth House and how an unschooling parent finds time to nourish her muse. You won't want to miss it!!

Thanks for reminding me about this book. I'd heard about it, it seems like long ago, now? And was so anxious to read it then. I'll have to pick up a copy!

They just added my blog to the directory as well, maybe there search engines went through the links on the unschooling blogs ring?

The book is truly fabulous....I can't wait to curl up and read more tonight.

Glad more blogs are getting added to the Bloggapedia too! I could submit a bunch I've got saved at the "links" section of unschoolingbasics yahoo list, but too much going on right now. If anyone feels like taking that on..go for it!:)
