      There were a lot of great little articles in there! I like the book reviews, especially. We're very interested in homesteading and are on the verge of a big move to the country to expand our practices.

      I enjoyed the article on "The Joys of Authentic Engagement." In particular, I was interested in the authors' insights about time, how we squander it, and how homeschooling can help us use time in a mindful way.

      I love the idea of little fairy gardens. My 5 year old will LOVE to create his own little garden and scene, though his may use Playmobil spies. I will take him on a nature walk today to start finding things! I'll get some sunflowers seeds, too, so we can plant them and hopefully grow a little hideaway as shown in the magazine. Great ideas!

      I like the idea of a "sit spot" to observe the changing seasons. I also read the tips for homeschooling multiple kids on different levels.

      I liked the article on "Simple, Sustainable Living." Many of the ideas are very simple (hence the title), but serve as a great reminder of how easy it can be to connect with each other and the earth.

      I really enjoyed the article "Nature and Story". I love how a simple walk to the beach can turn into a Science lesson or Art lesson in no time at all! When my child is out in nature, she typically becomes engaged and eager to learn all she can about her environment. Thank you for offering this giveaway!
