This book is a compilation of the experiences of 13 different homeschoolers and how they incorporated an unschooling style of teaching in their homes.

This home education approach is presented as a sensible way to access the mystery of learning, in which it operates not as an ideology in competition with the Catholic faith, but rather a flexible and individual homeschooling path.
