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

Inspired by the spirit of Henry David Thoreau—”All good things are wild and free”—mother of five Ainsley Arment founded Wild + Free. This growing online community of mothers and families want their children to receive a quality education at home by challenging their intellectual abilities and nurturing their sense of curiosity, joy and awe—the essence of a positive childhood.

The homeschool approach of past generations is gone—including the stigma of socially awkward kids, conservative clothes, and a classroom setting replicated in the home. The Wild + Free movement is focused on a love of nature, reading great books, pursuing interests and hobbies, making the entire world a classroom, and prolonging the wonder of childhood, an appealing philosophy that is unpacked during this audiobook.

The Call of the Wild and Free offers advice, information, and positive 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 kids’ traditional educations.

This is a great overview of the various homeschool methodologies and reasons for doing so and a good read for anyone, Mother OR Father that is considering or has just begun their homeschool journey. The narrating was very robotic, almost AI like and although clearly read, just lacks connection with the listener and possibly in need of better editing, otherwise a good book that more people need to read.

This book has been such a lovely gift to our homeschool experience. We are only on our second year, and was still trying to figure out how to align education, and the magic of childhood. The Call of the Wild and Free helped me shift my perspective, and realize childhood IS education. It gave me the confidence to know that while boxed curriculum has its place, it's not always the answer, and that only my sweet child can truly give me the keys to her needs and learning. So much peace and beauty has blessed our homeschool ever since.
