The Heart of Learning provides heart-centered guidance and essential information for teaching young children and for creating a nurturing and effective learning environment. This educational classic has informed homeschooling families for four decades, and continues to provide the foundation of Oak Meadow's K-3 curriculum.
Written by Lawrence Williams, Oak Meadow's co-founder and a pioneer in homeschooling and distance learning, The Heart of Learning has been updated to reflect modern concerns. Our 40th Anniversary Edition includes expanded sections on sustainable homeschooling, mindful parenting, technology, boredom and entertainment, nature-based learning, and more. It has also been redesigned into a more user-friendly format to allow relevant sections to be located quickly and easily. With its unique focus on helping the parent/teacher develop strong inner resources, The Heart of Learning is highly recommended for every adult who guides and shapes the lives of children.
Please note that the same volume is used for grades K-3; parents who have purchased The Heart of Learning for kindergarten do not need to purchase it again for grades 1-3.
"The Heart of Learning is my new favorite homeschool book. I will be recommending it to every new homeschool family I meet." Oak Meadow parent
