Pocketful of Pinecones: Nature Study with the Gentle Art of Learning: A Story for Mother Cultureby Karen Andreola, Robert E. Jones (Illustrator)
Yet Pocketful of Pinecones is a story about Carol. Carol is on her feet a lot -
Karen Andreola, renowned interpreter of the Charlotte Mason method of education, has written a unique sort of book in the homeschool world. Pocketful of Pinecones is a teacher's guide to nature study cleverly disguised as a heartwarming story written in the form of a mother's diary.
Yet Pocketful of Pinecones is a story about Carol. Carol is on her feet a lot - industriously caring for her family. In her diary Carol pours out her secret worries, hopes, joys, and disappointments. She also writes of the naturewalks she enjoys with her children. Her goal is to safeguard their sense of wonder. Together they observe God's marvelous creation and the children record their finds in their Nature Notebooks. Carol reads Home Education by Miss Charlotte Mason and attempts to put the advice into practice. Designed to be a "pick-me-up," each chapter is short enough to minister to a mother who has only snatches of time in which to nourish her soul.
