Description

A joyful and accessible approach to homeschooling that harnesses children’s natural curiosity and makes learning a part of everyday life, whether they’re in elementary or high school

Parents who are deeply invested in their children's education can be hard on themselves and their kids. When exhausted parents are living the day-to-day grind, it can seem impossible to muster enough energy to make learning fun or interesting. How do parents nurture a love of learning amid childhood chaos, parental self-doubt, the flu, and state academic standards? 

In this book, Julie Bogart distills decades of experience - homeschooling her five now grown children, developing curricula, and training homeschooling families around the world - to teach parents how to make education an exciting, even enchanting, experience for their kids, whether they're in elementary or high school. 

Enchantment is about ease, not striving. Bogart tells parents how to make room for surprise, mystery, risk, and adventure in their family's routine, so they can create an environment that naturally moves learning forward. If a child wants to pick up a new hobby or explore a subject area that the parent knows little about, it's easy to simply say "no" to end the discussion and the parental discomfort, while dousing their child's curious spark. Bogart gently invites parents to model brave learning for their kids so they, too, can approach life with curiosity, joy, and the courage to take learning risks.

Great Encouragement

This book was such a great encouragement with so many practical ideas.
It could be overwhelming taking all of Julie's ideas and implement them especially with little ones and critical illness in our family, but we just chose to glean what we had capacity for and revisit anything that seemed to ambitious.
I appreciated the perspective and parenting wisdom as well.

Excellent and Inspiring.

Even with a more traditional background, I enjoyed thinking outside of the box along with Julie and brainstorming for ideas I can actually apply. It would be difficult for ANYONE to get through this book and not be excited to proceed with homeschooling, mind brimming with ideas and motivating! Wonderful book and nice to hear the author's own voice!

If you have children in your life listen to this book!

Such an amazing book! For home educators yes, but for all people who have children in their lives. And a self help too boot! How you ask? Because that is what being a brave learner ourselves is all about!

Audio Version is Challenging

This review is just for the audiobook version.

While I love Julie Bogart's podcasts, and while I like the print form of this book, this audiobook didn't work for me. The book has lots of lists, which are helpful when you're reading along and can skim, but are tedious to listen to. Also, Julie's persona doesn't come through. Her voice seems artificial, modulated, yet sing-songy. Like a first year kindergarten teacher.

A must for homeschooling parents!

Let Julie guide you through seeing what’s so special about being at home with your children, and how to foster snuggly warm moments becoming the norm during your home educating years. She’s practical and enchanting, and listening to this book feels like you’re having tea with a big sister who’s been through it all and has come out shining on the other side. This is a very special book!

Relationship based-Enchanted Lives for All Families 🖤

I’ve been a Julie Bogart Super Fan for years! Although I couldn’t wait to read her book, The Brave Learner, I thought it would *just* be a recap of all her years of fantastic Podcasts, Periscopes, Blog Posts, and fantastic Instagram account - but it’s so much more!!

Julie’s calm, inquisitive, supportive nature, coupled with the experience of both home educating and public educating her 5 children, who are all now successfully thriving adults, wrote to my mama heart. The Brave Learner is the articulation of my ideal family relationship methods; it’s what I’ve tried to create in my home and with my family. From creating coziness and Poetry Tea Time, to Gaming Family validation and choosing a child-centered, interest-led education, Julie has a step-by-step guide that incorporates the gentle, supportive, loving guidance I work to achieve in my own home.

Whether you are a young parent, grandparent, public, private, or home educator - Julie’s Brave Learning ideas will spark enchantment and joy within your home, family, and yourself. Her ideas for striking out your own path to Awesome Adulting and repeatedly encouraging yourself to lower the bar to find success are so positively impactful in our world of bigger, better, more — you have permission to be human, to be yourself, you are enough.

Thank you, Julie, for this cozy guide to creating relationship-centric families 🖤

Life changing.

I know it may seem extreme to say “life changing,” but I was at a point where I felt so overwhelmed, worried that I wasn’t doing enough for my kids, and afraid I was damaging their educational future. In steps Julie Bogart. She instantly feels like a lifelong friend who puts her arm around you and says, “Everything you are doing is enough. MORE than enough. YOU are enough.” Julie gives practical advice and builds your confidence in your homeschooling abilities. Her TOP priority is the children and how they learn best and she walks along with you explaining and showing you the best ways you can help your children.

good, with a heaping grain of salt

I've been homeschooling for 10 years. I was also a teacher before having kids. This book has a good heart with plenty of tidbits to glean and tuck into your homeschool lifestyle as you see fit, but also a lot of wildly outlandish, impractical bits as well. Don't consume this one thinking it's a homeschool wisdom gospel. It has great parts- particularly the last section- but a lot of nonsense, too.

I'd rather have read the book

While I don't mind the reader (aka: author) I found times when I wanted to make some notes about things she mentioned so I wish I had simply read the book. Book has ideas to think about though I don't know that I agree completely. Ask me again when I'm done homeschooling.....in about 17 years.

Mocking tradition methods of homeschooling

I wish I had read some of the reviews before purchasing. This wasn’t my favorite book. I think it simply came down to the reason we homeschool! We homeschool to teach our kids what and how we want them taught. I did feel like Julie was mocking certain styles of homeschooling and ways of life. Go read other reviews before purchasing. I agree with reasons others have given for not recommending this book.

Didn’t want it to end

I bought this book in hardcopy, read it through twice and then decided I needed it in Audible to listen to whenever I needed a pick me up. I think every single homeschooling parent needs to read this book. There is so much more to homeschooling than just checking boxes and getting your kids ready for college. Julie’s wit and insight make it a super fun read that will have you laughing one minute and tearing up the next minute.

Absolute must have!

I originally purchased the hard copy book but realized if I was every going to be able to read something for myself I needed it on audible as well. I was not a fan of the reader who was very monotone and where she did have inflections it was not where I would have. That is literally my only complaint about the audible version.
