Day 11: How to Learn from the Land without Setting Foot Outside
If you haven't read My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George, you must, no matter how old you are! There's a reason it's called a 'modern classic'! I have had the privilege of reading this book several times to several children and look forward to reading it a few more. My Side of the Mountain is one of those books that makes you want to go live in a hollowed out tree, and Sam makes it seem like it's possible. So when you need an adventure but can't make it to the woods, stay in with this book. And be prepared to stay awhile:)
And if you find yourself ready to head outside after your trip to My Side of the Mountain, check out either of these books. There are plenty of activities to keep you busy for weeks! These are definitely a favorite at our house. Happy Learning!
