Parents want their children to have academic success. Children want to be happy.

Can’t we get these two desires together: learning that develops skill and creates joy?

How do parents nurture a love of learning amid childish chaos, parental self-doubt, the flu, and state academic standards?

The Brave Learner tackles this conundrum with humor and lots of help! In this book, you’ll learn about:

Creating a love of learning in your family is as easy as lighting a fire. You just need a book of matches. The Brave Learner is that book.

"There is big thinking here, a philosophy aimed at developing the unique, quirky, sometimes maddening, always magical people living in our houses. But there is also practicality—bullet lists, how-tos, and thought experiments, all vital scaffolding for a new application of principles.... This is a valuable handbook on education, one I wish I’d had when my children were young. (Julie’s were young at the same time, and the wisdom she’s distilled here is hard won.) But it’s also more than that. It’s a primer on how to be present in the moment, how to find the immediate joys of life in the midst of our daily labors—even in the days (or weeks, or months) when our kids may seem interested in absolutely nothing at all."

Susan Wise Bauer, author of The Well Trained Mind and Rethinking School

Barbara Oakley, author of Learning How to Learn and A Mind for Numbers
