Reclaiming Wonder in Your Child's Education

Five years ago, inspired by the spirit of Henry David Thoreau who wrote, “All good things are wild and free," mother of five Ainsley Arment started Wild + Free - a community of mothers and families who want their children to receive a quality education at home, while also nurturing a sense of curiosity, joy, and awe that encompasses a positive childhood.

Ainsley's new book The Call of the Wild and Free offers advice, insight, and encouragement for parents considering homeschooling, those currently in the trenches looking for inspiration, as well as parents, educators, and caregivers who want supplementary resources to enhance their children’s traditional educations. It's available on September 3rd wherever books are sold.



Allow your children to experience the adventure, freedom, and wonder of childhood with this practical book that provides all the information, inspiration, and advice you need for creating a quality homeschool education.
