    I would love to receive these books. I am this close to homeschooling because of the homework issue. I really want to instill a curiosity in my child that I see is not there in a public school setting.

    • Heather Shumaker says:

      Great! To enter, just post a quick 1-2 sentence book review. Then share what title you reviewed. Thanks!

  2. Justin says:

    I reviewed “It’s OK to Go Up the Slide”. Great book and common sense things that I should have known.

  3. Theresa B says:

    Finally finished “It’s ok to go up the slide”—-my personal take-away and review: challenge the rules of our K-8 program of running on the tan bark. Like in the book, if it’s not hurting person or property, why is it a rule?

    We went to the beach today so I could get some time to talk to my husband un-interrupted….the kids spent an hour collecting seaweed and throwing it into a pile—in front of where we were sitting. Each drop of the seaweed resulted in a big fat grin from my son and daughter…swelling with pride for their hunter and gatherer project they made up!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for your book! It has been a tremendous gift in my life and for my family and I’m talking about it every chance I get. I selected the book for my parenting book club and it sparked some wonderful conversation. I’ve also written about it on my blog (http://loveinventsusfamily.wordpress.com/2013/06/02/thank-you-heather-shumaker/) and bought copies for a handful of friends. I hadn’t even considered the idea of writing reviews before reading your post, so I’ll be off to do that as well. Most importantly though, a huge, heartfelt “thank you” from one Mama to another.

    • Heather Shumaker says:

      Oh my gosh, I definitely feel hugged!! Thank you, indeed. So pleased to know the book has made such a difference in your life. Love the fact that the dictated notes and non-meltdowns are going so well for your family.

      Thank you for spreading the book love around. Your blog review made my heart shine, and yes, posting a review on Amazon would be extra lovely. Is your book club reading the book now? I’m always happy to Skype in and say hello. All the best, Heather
