She shares this love for eco-conscious, self-sufficient living with others through social media as @axeandroothomestead, her books and online homesteading classes, public speaking, and regular contributions to publications such as Countryside Magazine, Backyard Beekeeping, and Backyard Poultry Magazines.

A Spark of Learning for the Summer

Robin Gold - 1 year ago
Part of the Little Homesteader series, this summer treasury is filled with nature-based recipes, crafts, and learning for the preschool and early elementary age. All ideas are focused around the summer season and included projects such as: brewing summer tea building an insect hotel raising butterflies making lemon sugar scrub and much more! The book also includes information about butterflies, beneficial insects, gardening tips, and summer crops. And encourages a healthy curiosity for the natural world. In the past, I've had the privilege to review many books in this series and have been delighted by every one of them. This summer treasury is filled with new ideas to create, learn, and spark interest. The projects are fun without being overwhelming. And the illustrations are just perfect for the target age range. This summer treasury is filled with wonderful ideas to keep your kiddos engaged in learning throughout the summer months. We absolutely loved it. *Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
