The Unschooling Unmanual is a series of essays about unschooling. Unschooling is an educational philosophy whereby children learn from there natural life experiences. Unlike conventional schooling, unschoolers do not believe that 'life' and 'learning' are separate entities - rather, we learn through living, and live to learn. All parents unschool in the first two years of life. We do not expect children to attend institutions in order to learn how to walk and talk, for example. Unschoolers simply extend that philosophy to other aspects of learning.The Unschooling Unmanual is extremely easy to read and is not too lengthy for the non-reader. It is a great book for unschoolers to read. Keep it on the table for those moments of self-doubt, or for reassurance after yet another argument with the mother-in-law. It is also good for those people who are just beginning to explore their options, or those who are simply curious about whether this unschooling lark really works.
