Il y en a de nous qui ont grandi jouant dans la boue,

Grimpant les arbres, attrapant des grenouilles. D’autres de nous étaient allergiques à la sueur, avait peur des hauteurs et le plus près que nous nous sommes approchés d’une araignée était en lisant le livre Charlotte`s Web!
Et là, nous avons commencé ce voyage appelé l’enseignement à domicile… Nos priorités, nos familles, nos vies et nos cœurs ont changé. Notre désir était que nos enfants aient quelque chose de différent, quelque chose de meilleur, quelque chose de plus. On voulait qu’ils puissent pouvoir regarder dehors et se perdre dans leurs pensées en observant un oiseau-mouche venant à la mangeoire. On a mis nos manuels de côté et prié qu’ils puissent être émerveillés par les petits têtards qui se changeaient en grenouilles juste devant leurs yeux. On a osé débrancher l’ordinateur en espérant qu’ils verraient le miracle, la poésie dans la chenille devenant un papillon….

Interroge les bêtes, elles t’instruiront, les oiseaux du ciel, ils te l’apprendront; parle à la terre, elle t’instruira; et les poissons de la mer te le raconteront; qui ne reconnaît chez eux la preuve que la main de l’Éternel a fait toutes choses? Il tient dans sa main l’âme de tout ce qui vit.
Job 12 : 7-9

What other home educators are saying about Creative Nature Study:

"This E-Book is perfect for me. It's exactly what I'd been missing. I wanted something modern, some way to give ideas about how to do nature study with my children in this century. Don't get me wrong, I like the old fashioned stuff, but I wanted real-life application and ideas on how to do this now, with my children. This E-Book contains lots of fabulous stories about how other families study nature. They're all different. There are so many creative moms out there. It's so nice to take a peek into someone else's homeschool and see how they do it."
-Julie Ketter, TOS Research Panel

"By nature, I am a hands-on homeschooling mom. While homeschooling our five children, I learned that my children are most successful when they smell, taste, feel, perhaps even become what they are learning. So nature studies have always been a part of our lives. With that said, this book is an awesome resource, whether you are a veteran or brand-new homeschooler. Everything you need to know about how to conduct a nature study is included in this guide . . . inside this book, you have the blueprints to create wonderful learning opportunities for your children. Everything you need to know from supplies to location ideas. If you have ever had an inkling to start nature studies I would invest in this awesome resource!"
-Jennifer Southern, TOS Research Panel

"I am not a big 'outdoorsy' type Mama. I don't like cold (half our year), and I'm not fond of bugs (other half of year). So? My kids have not had the one element of a Charlotte Mason education that everyone says is so fundamental. Do I think they've suffered for it? Well, hmmm . . . maybe. I was eager to read Creative Nature Study--maybe it'd help me get over my inhibitions, but what I got out of it was so much more! There are stories of the real "Granola Mamas" who can just about live outdoors--all the way to those who have children with severe environmental allergies who are unable to spend hours and hours outside. You mean we come in all shapes and sizes AND nature-friendliness? I kept reading--and kept being inspired by mom after mom who took this thing we call nature study and made it her own . . . My favorite ideas? The "I see God Walks" and the Perpetual Calendar--and so many more incredible ideas than I can list! I give this one a thumbs-up for sure!"
-Shannon Ratcliffe, TOS Research Panel

"From the moment I started reading this book, I was so inspired. It made me realize what I have been missing out on for years . . . This book is a must-have if you have ever had the desire to do nature studies. There's something in here for everybody . . . There are so many suggestions, ideas, and resources included. You will be able to walk away and start some sort of nature study right away. In fact, I plan on trying out the wonderful idea of keeping a nature journal through a perpetual calendar this week! The end of the book includes a wonderful list of books, Internet sites, and materials available for sale at the TOS Store. This book will be a great resource to me for a long time."
-Heidi Miller-Ford, TOS Research Panel
