This is a low-cost (under $30, and discounts given for orders of 5 or more copies) full curriculum that emphasizes hands-on, experiential learning that also integrates the 3 R's. Topics are open-ended and encourage children to venture further into their areas of interest. I especially like the chapter on teaching values.
The author's philosophy would appeal to many homeschoolers. True learning with understanding is a process of building mental structures through lessons reinforced with experiential activities that build on the previous even preschoolers are far from 'blank slates children have a wealth of knowledge garnered from everyday experience and self motivated explorations and observations. This curriculum is designed to offer a solid foundation on which the children can build throughout their lives.
