From My Inbox

From a lovely homeschool mom we know:

"Dear Friends,

I hope you are well and happy, and full of wonder these days!
As most of you are aware, I have a book coming out in the very near future and I wanted to take a minute to tell you a little bit more about it since I don’t get the opportunity to see many of you on a daily basis. The title is Child of Wonder: Nurturing Creative and Naturally Curious Children.

The book is getting good advance reviews, which obviously pleases me. I’m very excited to see it having such a positive impact on those who read it. A personal education “hero” of mine and prolific author of related education material, Jane M. Healy, PhD. said, “This delightful and useful book is a joyous antidote to the canned electronic amusements which stifle our kids’ creative juices. Parents and teachers who explore its wealth of ideas will benefit themselves, their children, and the future potential of our society.”

It has also been reviewed positively by a few parenting/education magazine editors, La Leche League representatives, the Campaign for Commercial-Free Childhood, and other authors such as Lawrence Cohen, PhD. ( author of Playful Parenting).

You can read the Foreword written by award winning author and educator Melissa Hart here: http://commongroundpress.com/Foreword.html

or here (which also shows the back cover and spine):

If you would like an autographed copy, I would be very happy to send you one. Any books preordered through me before March 15th will be autographed and given free shipping. The price of the book is $16.95. If you do order an autographed copy, please make sure you let me know who to make it to (especially if it is intended to be a gift)!

I will continue to give updates about the book through the free monthly newsletter I write (going on four years now). If you are interested in signing up for it, you can do so here: http://gingercarlson.com/html/wonderwise.html
If you know any friends, teachers, parents, grandparents, childcare providers, or anyone else who might be interested in receiving it, please feel free to pass the information on."
