And I just have to brag a little...we read Bunnicula last week (cute vampire rabbit story - only scary on the level of a 3yr old - the rabbit "sucks" juice from veggies, not people/animals). This week at the library, I saw they had created a series about Bunnicula too so I grabbed #1 and thought we'd try it out. It sat in our library book pile for a few days while we weeded through a few others. Friday after nap, 5yL came downstairs with his nose in the book. At first I thought he was doing it to be dramatic, as he does most things (LOL) but I realized he was on chapter 3 and didn't want to stop mid-chapter. ;) He finished the book on Saturday morning, completing his first 'novel' by himself. I didn't pester him into it. I didn't force him to read for XX minutes a day. I didn't make him do phonics worksheets for the last two years. He did it because he wanted to. And he asked me to get #2 from the library for him next time we go. ;)
Yeah, I love unschooling.
